Pleiades

Group of seven Berlin chess players who met between 1837 and 1839 to further advance chess.  The seven players were Paul Rudolph von Bilguer, Dr. Ludwig E. Bledow (the leader), Wilhelm Hanstein, Bernhard Horwitz, Tassilo von Heydebrand und der Lasa, Karl Mayet, and Karl Schorn.  They were known as the Seven Stars of Berlin, or the Pleiades.   Von der Lasa objected to the name Pleiades because the group of stars shine faintly.
