<Mibelz> There is a discrepancy regarding the dates of birth and death and the nationality. Can you give your source, please?

or see "Games of no Chance" (e.g. google books)

<mibelz> sauce, pardon source:

May-19-14  Karpova: The 'Wiener Schachzeitung' (June 1909, p. 180) also gives * <11 March 1842> and + <9 March 1909>. The discrepancy is probably due to Julian (March 11, March 9) and Gregorian (March 24, March 22) calender.
