A smart guy with great talent.

He's okay

217 Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
218 Hannibal of Carthage

Was a military genius managed to defeat one third of Rome's army while outnumbered in the battle of Cannae.

He never got to take control of the Roman Empire, but if you research about him, you'll realize how smart and cunning he was. He defeated several consuls using his knowledge on the typical Roman values, and using it to his advantage. Some of the situations he managed to outwit the Romans in... it's impressive. - lulufairy

219 Confucius Confucius Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.

What? 157?
He was very wise!
Advised lots of leaders and pretty much stopped a lot of wars.

He developed his own religion and influenced the lives of many people.

His beliefs are still in practice today. Very influential man. 186 is way too low for him.

220 Nathaniel Bowditch

How is STEVE JOBS and a bunch of other guys who probably can't compare to Nathaniel Bowditch above him?

He got a degree from Harvard, without even going there! This list is all based on opinion, and no, no way in hell is Adolf Hitler the smartest man ever to live. I guess if Hitler is number 1, then every other emperor or ruler of every empire ever comes right behind him because they made a successful empire, right? Wrong.

He was the genius mathematician and astronomer who wrote 'The American Practical Navigator. ' He went to school for two years as a small child, but was taken out of school to be indentured at a ship chandelry, but at that ship chandelry he self-educated himself by doing things like studying math, astronomy, and even reading Newton's Principia. He knew many different language by comparing his English Bible with many other language translations of the Bible. He was so smart that Harvard awarded him a diploma- and he never even went to school there or anywhere.

Without him, so many lives of men at sea would be lost if not for his ocean navigation book which is still used a lot today.

He schooled himself and got a Harvard degree without going to Harvard! In my eyes he easily makes the top 20.
