    Edit: in other news, I would probably swap 2. and 3. in my list. Maybe swap 4. and 5. as well.

    I know nothing of past mathematicians to have any sort of informed opinion, but Ramanujan's story is fascinating. Died so young too.

    I am amazed how many of these guys are virtually self-taught.

    P.S. Newton is not a mathematician, nor is Einstein.

    Didn't Newton study maths at cambridge? Everyone had to at that time but that's beside the point.

    No, he did philosophy. Cambridge is pretty crappy for maths during the time of Newton. Its only till Hardy came along did they start actually doing Maths and not Physics.
