Roman Chess

The city of Rome was founded in 753 BC, but by just 117 AD, it had expanded to include all of modern-day Italy, lands in the Mediterranean, and a huge swath of Europe that included England, Wales, and some of Scotland. Many of the Roman Empire’s wars were fought over trying to expand those boundaries, while other battles were fought over religion; this chess set is inspired by this time.

 Powerful and famous rulers will wander across the chess board, and you might even end up with Julius Caesar checkmating the Pharaoh! The Egyptian chessmen also bring in a vast history of chess and archaeology to your fingertips. From collectors to chess players, these Roman theme chess sets are good for all comers!
