Top 10 Smartest People In History


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton

Listen to the soundtrack to Hamilton the musical and you will understand. Just you wait... Just you wait...

Alexander hamilton, not only helped shape a GOVERNMENT SYSTEM STILL IN FUNCTION, he was also an orphan, and immigrated here at age 17. He also was George Washington's right hand man during the revolutionary war, the national treasury secretary, creator of the cost guard, the founder of the New York Post(still one of the most widely realized and credible papers of all time) and on top of all that, he kicked butt in the court room. He is one of the best founding fathers, in the idea that his implements on the US have lasted longer than any other president(financialy)

62 Garry Kasparov
63 Heinrich Himmler Heinrich Himmler

Logistical genius. Not since the massive growth of globalization in the 21st century has such a large and sophisticated transportation network been run with such efficiency.

He did find Atlantis B4 I did he even left a calling card on the way to get there

64 Steve Jobs Steve Jobs

0% vote; enough said

Steve Jobs is awesome. He was the head of all the apple products. He is the best. Almost everyone knows him and doesn't that mean he is ultra popular.

He is the man who changed the world with his intelligence. We now use touch screen thanks to this man.

66 Neil deGrasse Tyson Neil deGrasse Tyson

He's a totally cool guy and he knows about space and stuff! If I had a dad I hope he'd be like Neil deGrasse Tyson and he could teach me about space and be funny.

Doubt it, he was tossed out of two graduate programs. He is photogenic, but compared to other scientists, not unusually bright.

Hope you get better and smarter


67 Benito Mussolini Benito Mussolini more.

He had an influence on Adolf Hitler and we all know that Adolf is the most intelligent man of all time.

Just for his influence on Hitler he deserves to be on here.

He influenced the most intelligent man to ever live.

He deserves a spot on this list with his undeniable influence to the fuhrer.

He was an influence on Adolf so he deserves to be on here.

He was kicked out of italy

68 Muhammad Iqbal

One of the greatest poet, politician, philosopher, lawyer and genius in this planet. He created amazing poems which motivated people of Subcontinent to fight for their seperate country and ultimately Pakistan was created. His poems made revolution in Iran as well. And sir allama iqbal has motivated millions and lots of people took inspiration from him - Pakistat

I have great respect for him in my heart

He is the great poet ever

Allama Iqbal is one of those great personalities who born after centuries.

70 Helen Keller

I think Helen Keller shouldn't be number 68. She should be nearest to 20. She learned to read and write while she was deaf and BLIND. It takes smarts to comprehend literature when your deaf and blind. I think Helen Keller inspires women and men all around the world, that nothing is impossible. She is a perfect role model for children and adults all around the world with disabilities. Therefore, she should be included in the top 20.

At least smart than a brick and you really can't say that about the other contenders

I think she would have to be number one as she learned to write when she was both deaf and blind. I think that it is very unfair that Michael Jackson was put ahead of her and this is coming from an 11 year old!

She was smarter than most people today and she was blind and deaf.

71 Thomas Aquinas

Aquinas thoroughly understood and improved on Aristotle's method of philosophy. He wrote a towering work of theology which, still today, only the best and brightest successfully search through hoping to gain nuggets of wisdom. Oh, and he dictated to six scribes on different subjects at the same time.

Pseudo-philosopher whose arguments have been refuted a million times.

Thomas Aquinas welded the wisdom of the ancient Greeks with that of Christianity. His philosophical grasp of Aristotle and explanatory powers are unrivaled.

72 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 . V 1 Comment

76 Otto von Bismarck Otto von Bismarck Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg, known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative Prussian statesman who dominated German and European affairs from the 1860s until 1890. In the 1860s, he engineered a series of wars that unified the German states, deliberately excluding Austria, more.

Joseph stalin and otto are the smartest politicians ever, and they should be in the top 5. augustus octaviane as well

77 Napoleon Bonaparte Napoleon Bonaparte Napoléon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars.

He could do it all.

The most competent human being who ever lived.

Made France what it is today.

78 Moses Moses

I disagree with the comment before mine. Moses led over 600,000,000 people to prove it look in the bible Exodus chapter 14


He has been proven to be real and so has Jesus. Dna people

The Flavion's wrote the bible. Jesus is not real and neither is Moses.

79 Alan Turing Alan Turing Alan Mathison Turing was a pioneering English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist.

He's actually up there with Einstein and Newton - let along breaking the Enigma code. He was a certified genius, just lots of his stuff was buried after the war, or forgotten because he was a homosexual. He died young - suicide - so his full potential was never exposed.

Very influential in the creation of the modern computer. He was the first to make a reprogrammable computer and all around changed the game. at the time he was also the best mathematical minds in the world, and I cannot forget to mention he was one of the major reasons Hitler did not win WWII.

I was just impressed watching the imitation game. Christopher is a mind boggling machine. His brain is too amazing to create such a machine

80 Osama Bin Laden Osama Bin Laden Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was the founder of al-Qaeda, the organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets worldwide.

I haven't seen Barack Obama's name yet. I think in all fairness, he should be rated higher than the villain he disposed of.

Yes, he was very intelligent to make up that complicated plan on 9/11 - luisprado

I don't think he is smart because he attacked on9/11

Your mom is gey
