Who Is the Smartest Person Who Ever Lived?

Answered on Quora.

Goethe, Michelangelo, William Sidis and a number of others have been suggested for the honors.

Goethe seems to take the prize for “universal genius,” and in fact, that is what he was called during his time. He may have had a 220 IQ, if that is even possible. A man as smart as Goethe comes around maybe once every 100 years or so.
