Default Polygamy by World Chess Champions

Philidor was very much opposed to the idea that a player could have
more than one queen on the board at one time, feeling that 'polygamy'
violated Christian values. Nonetheless the polygamy idea on the
chessboard caught on and Alekhine had a famous game , Game 11 of the
1927 match with Capablanca where there were 4 Queens on the board at
one time. Does anyone know of other famous ploygamist World title
match games matching that?

Please believe that there's plenty of chess nerds out there who've
analyzed stuff like this to death.
