    Sorry mr. Einstein but this happens just inside your head. I doubt in the whole chess history that this position will ever be reached without a castle. And to castle with mate, pfew.

    ...

    Well since I already posted 3 games in this topic (post #253) where there was a very late castling it is already documented that it can happen in real games. In two of those games the castling happened in move 48 (without a check mate), in the third game the castling happened in move 31 giving a check mate.

    Want more documentation? Look here:

    Paul Morphy vs Alonzo Morphy 1850, (without Queen's rook) ending with 18. 0-0# :

    Edward Lasker vs George Alan Thomas, 1912,
    the game could have ended with either
    18. Kd2# or with 18. 0-0-0#
    Lasker chose to play 18. Kd2#

    Lodewijk Prins vs Lawrence Day, 1968, ended with 31... 0-0-0#
