JOHN M BRUEHL
(born 1736, died 1809) Germany

[what is this?]
Hans (John) Moritz von Bruehl was born in Wiederau, Germany. He was Minister of Saxony in Germany and Ambassador to England, and lived in London. He was one of the strongest players of the London Chess Club. He gave support to François André Philidor. He was a count. In 1782, at the Parsloe’s, François André Philidor drew with Bruehl and defeated Thomas Bowdler blindfolded, simultaneously. François André Philidor played several blindfold games against Bruehl throughout the years. In 1788, Bruehl defeated Cotter and lost to General Henry Seymour Conway in two chess matches in London. In 1795, François André Philidor published a third editon of his chess book, L’analyse du jeu des Echecs, and dedicated it to his friend and chess patron, Count Bruehl. The count was also interested in music (a patron of musicians) and astronomy (he built his own observatory). He was a colonel in the French service.

Note: there's some confusion about the exact DOB and DOD.
