Many very bright people were found to have dyslexia. I did read that Einstein had problems at school although I don't really know if it had to do with dyslexia or not. As for Da Vinci i've read that not only he might have been dyslexic, but he also had some characteristics that would diagnose him with ADD nowadays. Dyslexia certainly has nothing to do with intellectual capacity, and applies to reading / writing. Most studies suggest that people with dyslexia are from average or above average IQ. It also appears that it is more common in males than in females. SO that so many geniuses seem to have been dyslexic probably makes sense :)
