The person who invented chess is somewhat debatable, and not fully known. The earliest version of modern chess was a game called Chaturanga. Chess is one of the most ancient games in the world, and it is assumed that the country of origin is India, and then not long after, it spread all over the world.
The tyrannical Indian Shahram and a wise man in his kingdom, Brahmin Sissa invented the game to represent the kingdom. They designed the game pieces, which consisted of the king, his queen, rooks, bishops, knights, and pawns.
