He has over 40 points of IQ on Einstein and that's the lowest estimate we have because our most brilliant minds can't even measure how intelligent he is. The current estimate is 210 IQ which is 60 on Einstein. Enough said.

212 Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
213 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

214 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.

215 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.

216 William H. Gates

Became the wealthiest person in the world for many years now, without a college degree.. Scored 1590 out of 1600 in SAT.

217 Louis Pasteur Louis Pasteur Louis Pasteur was a French chemist and microbiologist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization.

Boil the milk before drinking it!

218 Eratosthenes

He measured the Earth to 2% accuracy. In 230 because. With a stick. He's a genius. Look at what he did. He measured the distance from the Earth to the sun and figured out the Earth's tilt. He was the curator of the library of Alexandria. He invented a formula to calculate prime numbers. He wrote history biography and poetry. Hell, he even criticized Aristotle for being a racist. In astronomy he made a star catalogue and invented the leap day. His peers called him Beta, because he was the second best in the world... In every field of study.

His nickname was Beta because he was the second best in everything except for calculating diameter and circumference of planets, which he was the best at.

He is so smart... He foung out the earth was a round sphere!

Why isn't he #1?

219 J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling

The greatest author in the world.

J.K. Rowling is a very smart person, but not the smartest. Her books were INCREDIBLE, though. She has a very special gift: the fluent use of words. She can take words, and mix them together, creating beautifully illustrated pictures in your head. Her books have a very smart, strong, and loyal fanbase. It takes a lot of persuasion to get someone to believe in something so unbelievable, so magical...
My description seems familiar...oh, yes...I LOVE HARRY POTTER!

220 Cyrus the Great

He has made best rules and justice in his time he is the greatest king in history - par

A great king of all Iran...a very wise man and justice providing ruler.
