or persons..

Report as

It's difficult to quantify intelligence, but the smartest people throughout history, to me, in no particular order, include:
Alexander the Great for his military prowess
Aristotle
Plato
Albert Einstein
Schr?dinger
Adolf Hitler (He was crazy and a terrible man, but a genius at what he did)
Joseph Stalin (Same as Hitler)
Karl Marx
Thomas Edison
Stephen Hawking
Julius Caesar (Arguably, he did a lot of dumb stuff too.)
Marie Curie
Leonardo Da Vinci
Wilhelm Wundt
Pythagoras

I'm sure a lot more are qualified for this, and this isn't including a lot of different parts of science and mathematics, or any sort of creative intelligence, but this is a list of people that I thought of first.

Leonardo da Vinci was considered the most intelligent man with the most consistency ever across all tested traits of mental acuity.
