The queen wasn't so strong at first


The strongest player in chess is, of course, the queen who sweeps straight and sideways, but he didn't start out that way. His moves are the "Shi" of Chinese chess. That is, only one grid can be slanted, which of course is too weak to do, and then after a revision, it will become like + car walking, and immediately become the strongest existence! With this realization, you know that the king is at least better than the original "queen" ~


This is a misunderstanding with a long history


Chess originated in India from the Chachaka, then spread to ancient Persia, "queen" the piece originally meant "the king's side of the person." The Arabs brought the game to Europe, and in the process of localization, translated "the king's side" into "the queen." But in fact, in Persia, it refers to the prime minister or general, which is commonly known as "one person under ten thousand people" or "the hand of the king."


The rise of women's rights in medieval Europe


According to Arte de axedres, TheArt of Chess, the Queen was already the most powerful piece in the game. Queen Isabella had a lot to do with this change, but it was due to the rise of feminism in Europe beginning in the 11th and 12th centuries, when the Queen kicked the Prime minister off the board. The rise of women's rights is intertwined with the evolution of chess, and like the previous rule evolution, the transformation of the "post-chess pieces" is only another expression of this change in power. For those interested in the evolution of women's rights and the symbolism of the "post-chess", read Marilyn Yalom's "Birth of the Chess Queen".
