The term checkmate is, according to the Barnhart Etymological Dictionary, an alteration of the Persian phrase which means, literally, "the King is helpless".[7] Others maintain that it means "the King is dead", as chess reached Europe via the Islamic world, and Arabic māta means "died" or "is dead"

And lastly, this one. Checkmate.

Checkmate (often shortened to mate) is a game position in chess (and in other board games of the chaturanga family) in which a player's king is in check (threatened with capture) and there is no way to remove the threat. Checkmating the opponent wins the game.
