|Keyword Query:||Can The Queen Jump In Chess|
|Interpretation:||You want to know if the Queen has the same capability as the Knights, which can jump over other Pawns and Pieces on the Board.|
It's possible you've overheard how Chess was played in Medieval times ... However, back then - whenever it was, exactly - it wasn't the Queen that could jump, but the Bishops.
Both Bishops and Knights were, once, able to jump over obstacles.
However, unlike today's Bishop, with its diagonal, long-range capacity; Medieval Bishop Chess Pieces could only move a maximum of 2 squares, per turn.
As for the Queen, she CANNOT jump - not in Medieval times; not in today's game.
