When the Mughal Emperor Akbar invaded the Indian subcontinent in the 16th century he chose quite a remarkable way to conquer his enemies.
Whereas Genghis Khanm, his Mongol ancestor, pillaged and destroyed the towns he captured, Akbar sought to assimilate his new subjects. He had a fascination with their various religious and cultural values.

Distinctively Staunton in shape and carved from solid ebony, these outstanding chess pieces are wonderfully ornate. Each overtly expresses its unique identity. "Garvi" is the Hindi word which translates as "proud", and of course no chess piece is as proud as the king, standing 4 inches tall. By his side, the queen was inspired by the minarets of the Taj Mahal, a structure built by the Mughals in the 17th century. Her pointed headdress circles a decorative spire that is second in size only to the king's crown. The tabletop rook is a prime example of originality in the Regency Chess Collection. And the knight, a chess piece many consider to be the most important attacker as well as zonal defender in a game of infinite possibilities, is an arching horse with curved neck and intricately carved, thick mane. It has been hand carved from the turned base upwards. Much like many of Akbar's subjects, each of these chess pieces vary in their style.
