HA! If this person was as smart as people thought, he'd continue to live his life, as folks like him would be respected and valued in the next couple decades, and he would be smart enough to make himself rich until then. It takes guts to live ANY kind of life though, even the unlife, as the bowels of hell can be quite scary to the living.
Clearly though, he wasn't very smart at all. He was just the type of person whose treated unfairly in life ON PURPOSE. These people are driven to hell, so they cannot change the whole world, or even theirs. And based on who's watching them(in this case, the British royalty), this possibility can be taken and used for someone else's purposes. The unseen force that control everyone's lives are quite malevolent.
The only brilliant and honorable way to die is to die fighting.
Maybe the brilliance in this guy's thought is that by committing suicide while young, he has taken faulty individual such as him out of the gene pool, in that case, he is brilliant. Any other reason that is not based on betterment of mankind is pathetic imho.
I wonder if he tried to calculate odds of an afterlife, like heaven, hell, or reincarnation? And if he was truly brilliant, then leaving this world could be a big 'f**k you' to a world that doesn't value the gifts he had to share. Or keeping his potential out of the world's hands for fear of misuse. Going Galt on an existential level.

The advantage of being a narcissist is that you are much less likely to commit suicide than a non-narcissist.
