    In 1283, King Alphonso X the Wise of Spain commissioned a watercolor painting of a leader of the Muslim Moors playing chess with a local Christian leader. Brought by the Moors to Spain, the game later had a cross affixed to the king as part of the cultural convergence. King Alphonso saw chess as a natural way to extend friendships first made in quiet intellectual contemplation. After some initial strife, hundreds of years of peaceful coexistence followed where Spain became a model of different cultures and world views living together in friendship, Christian and Moslem, as well as their large Jewish community. Of course King Alphonso used more than just chess to build bridges. He produced the world's first encyclopedia, a compendium of all that was known by the three cultures living in his kingdom. MegaChess commissioned renowned historical researcher and painter Maria Radnoti to look into the details and to paint the result, which is the poster.
