The origins of this game may be hard to pinpoint, but its history can be traced back to 1,500 years ago.The predecessor of the modern game of chess was played in India prior to the 6th century A.D. From India, the game spread to Persia, then to the Muslim world, and then to southern Europe. Many forms and styles of chess existed prior to the 1800s. In the second half of the 19th century, modern chess tournaments began. The first World Chess Championship was held in 1886. In the 20th century, the World Chess Federation was formed and tournament play was standardized. Can it be different in chess?
This time Prince Alexander Nevsky and Pope Innocent IV, Orthodox Russia and Catholic Europe met on his board. It is clear that everyone has his own army and his entourage thus, the wife of Alexander Nevsky, the Polotsk Princess, Alexander Bryachislavna, and later the Princess of Novgorod, Vladimir and Kiev became the white Queen.
The artist entrusted her with the position of the strongest figure, not by chance, with constantly warring her husband and the principality, however in his absence, she ruled. It is the chronicles, which stated she ruled decisively with no reservations, providing the Prince with an unreliable rear in his absence. She also became the continuer of the Alexander Nevsky family, having given him three sons and a daughter, whom later became the Queen replacing her!
One of their war elephants was Metropolitan Kirill III. The spiritual ally of the Novgorod Prince, the metropolitan, as well as Alexander, considered tolerant Mongols to be a lesser evil for the Orthodox faith than Western Catholic expansion, and it was he, who secured the security label from Batu in 1252, which guarantees the inviolability of the Orthodox Church. Is it possible in the context of that era, to consider such a thing as nothing other than the preservation of national identity?
The Mongolian Khan Sartak, whose cavalry contributed a lot to the defeat of the Teutonic knights on Lake Peipsi, soon became another elephant of Alexander Nevsky, alas, it is an embarrassment recorded by official historical archives.
The white pawns are a mighty Russian army, moreover, each pawn has its own “face”, its own reflected character and the King of the blacks is the Pope of Rome, who has repeatedly tried to tempt, bribe, and by force compel the Novgorod Prince to renounce the Orthodox faith.
Black elephants - the master Andreas von Felfen, the one that built the pigs of the Teutonic Knights on the ice of Lake Peipsi, and the Swedish Earl Birger Magnusson, whom the Novgorod Prince “left a seal on his face with a sharp spear” in the Battle of Neva, the black pawns are the Teutonic Knights. In contrast to the white Russian army, the artist deliberately dressed them in topfhelmy helmets, turning them into a faceless black force.
