|Mar-13-07|| ||GreenCastle: I don't know who the Lucena Position is named after, but it's not this guy.|
|Oct-11-07|| ||pawnofdoom: The Lucena position was named after some Spanish guy named Luis Ramirez de Lucena (c. 1465 c.1530). It's a misnomer, because Lucena didn't actually write a book or anything on it, some other guy named Alessandro Salvio did. Credit: Wikipedia|
|Oct-11-07|| ||capablancakarpov: <pawnofdoom> False, Wikipedia is incorrect. Lucena ( not Luis or Ramirez, simply Lucena ) wrote the first ever modern chess book " Repeticion de amores y del Arte del Ajedrez " in 1497, and gave there a lot of modern openings for the first time, so is a shame that there isnīt any opening named after him, only a position ( for example, Damiano copied almost Lucenaīs entire book, and he has one opening named after him, the Damiano Defense, which he also copied from Lucenaīs book).|
PS: Itīs noteworthy that some people believe that actually the first chess modern book was wroten in 1495 in Valenciá, a Spanish local language, by a man named Francesc Vicent, but there arenīt any copies remaining. Supporters of this theory say that Lucena copied Vicentīs book and translated it to Spanish.

Here is an excellent and really hilarious article by Edward Winter on the campaign:
It's really worth reading!
