10 Facts of Who Invented Chess

Chess is believed to have originated in India around the 6th century AD.

The earliest known form of the game was called chaturanga, which means "four divisions" in Sanskrit.

Chaturanga was played with pieces representing four branches of the Indian army: elephants, horses, chariots, and foot soldiers.

The game spread throughout the world through trade and conquest, and evolved into the modern game of chess that we know today.

The rules of modern chess were standardized in the 15th century in Europe, where the game became popular among royalty and nobility.

Chess is considered one of the oldest and most popular games in the world, with millions of players and enthusiasts around the globe.

The game has been used for centuries as a tool for teaching strategy, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

India has produced some of the world's greatest chess players, including Viswanathan Anand, who held the world championship title from 2007 to 2013.

The Indian government has recognized chess as a sport since 1977, and it is now played competitively at the national and international level.

Today, India is home to a thriving chess community, with thousands of clubs, tournaments, and events held every year.
