HISTORY OF CHESSChess is one of the worlds most popular and beloved games with over 600 million players worldwide. The theory and composition of chess reflects both art and science. Playing the game is known to increase brain power.
Early forms of chess are thought to have originated in northern India or Afghanistan sometime prior to 600 A. The game first came to Europe via Italy and Spain from Persia through trade routes around 1000 A. Another theory suggests the game was brought to Europe by the Moors who invaded Spain in the 8th century. Vikings took the game further north to Scandinavia and Iceland. Chess as we know it today emerged in Southern Europe during the second half of the 15th century.Todays chessmen were given their names by Europeans who probably were unable to pronounce the Persian names for the pieces. The six different chess pieces offer a snap shot of medieval life with its ceremonies, wars, and grandeur. The king, queen, bishop, rook, knight, and pawn represent the very way in which the ordinary men and noblemen lived their lives during medieval times.
