The American chess legend Paul Charles Morphy (1837-1884) was one of the most famous chess players of the 19th century and possibly the best of his time. After becoming U.S. champion in 1857, the following year he set off on a famous tour of Europe that made him undoubtedly the world #1. This included the smashing of the great Anderssen in a match (+7-2=2).
