With PEOPLE EXPLORER you can see and browse through, how notable and interesting people are (or have been) connected and related to each other.

There are currently about 9.600.000 records about human beings stored in the Wikidata database. Everyone of them has (or had) its own story, his own life, her own family, relations, connections. There were people that influenced many other people, there were marriages, children, girl- or boyfriends, business partners, teachers, employers, successors and also murderers.

With PEOPLE EXPLORER you can see now a vivid picture of those relations, you can browse through history, see families evolve from generation to generation, philosophers who influenced scientists and poets, musicians who learned their craft from other musicians. There were kings, who were murdered and succeded sometimes even by the same person. There were assasins who were killed by other killers.

Behind each and every connection hides a story. Sometimes there was someone who has written down this story and sometimes you find this story in the Wikipedia.
