History of chess:
Chess was played many centuries ago in
China , India , and Persia .
No one really knows for sure in which country it originated.
Then, in the eighth century, armies of Arabs
known as Moors invaded Persia .
The Moors learned chess from the Persians.
When the Moors later invaded Spain ,
the soldiers brought the game of chess with them.
Soon the Spanish were playing chess, too.
From Spain , chess quickly spread throughout all of Europe . Thanks for looking and happy bidding to you all!
