Pretty sure Uranus and Neptune aren’t visible to the naked eye. That’s why Uranus is the first planet to be “discovered”. Everything out to Saturn was visible to the naked eye and known for millennia.

Edit: just checked. At opposition, with the perfect viewing conditions and extremely good eyesight, Uranus can be seen un-aided. That is not, however, considered to be visible to the naked eye.
