Free APIs for famous people?

Hi everyone!

Do you know any public API that returns info about famous people like artists, politicians, scientists and so on?

I'm only interested in their birth and death days, and maybe a short description of them.

Thanks!

You can use MediaWiki API
mediaWiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page

And there's a SPARQL search API: query.wikidata.org/
