Greek Chess Set and Board

The game of chess dates back centuries to nations like Persia, India, and China. The Moors invaded Persia in the 8th Century and learned the game from them. Years later, the Moors invaded Spain and brought the game with them. Spain adopted the game and quickly spread it throughout Europe.

Europeans had a hard time pronouncing the Persian names for the game pieces, so they took it upon themselves to rename the figures to suitable roles that reflected the Medieval times social structure they were living in. The pawns relflected the lowly surfs (laborers) in the bottom class that could be sacrificed to save anyone above them, which meant everyone.

The rook (castles) served as the home base. The knights on horseback served as a professional soldiers for the upper class. The bishops are the high religious figures. The queen has the most power and can move as she wishes, but without the king, the game is over.

This Greek Chess set includes the game pieces and board. Made from resin, in a stone finish, the board measures 16.5" diameter x 2"H. The tallest chess piece measure 4"H.
