Miyoko Watai ruled Bobby Fischer's legal heir

The Reykjavik district court determined that Miyoko Watai, the late chess GM Robert J. Fischers wife is his legal heir. Fischer became an Icelandic citizen a few years before his death. He died in Iceland. A woman  who claimed her daughter was Fischers legal heir was also involved in the legal battle until Fischer's body was exhumed and a DNA analysis confirmed that Fischer was not her daughter's biological father. Reykjavik district court has concluded that the documents submitted by Watai confirmed that she and Fischer were legally married on September 6, 2004
