LOEWENTHAL, JOHANN JAKOB (1810–1876), Hungarian chess master. Loewenthal found refuge in England after the abortive 1848 Hungarian revolution. He was recognized as a leading player as a result of his play in 1851 in a very strong London tournament won by Anderssen. He was successful in match play and wrote prolifically in the chess press.
