I want to know how many people have been famous (=have their own Wikipedia page) since the beginning of time.

Is there a way I can see all the articles of the same category? Maybe querying the entire Wikipedia by the category real person?

Or is there a better way to get this info than Wikipedia?

You can check both Category:Living people and Category:Dead people for a full list of people that are on Wikipedia. These two categories represent pages that are about actual people (who are likely to be famous due to their notability policy).
