Medieval Chess, Rules, How Queens Moved:
Part of the Chess History Guide
- How Queens Moved -
Another restriction of the Medieval Chess game was placed on the Queen, as not only was she limited to one move per turn, she could only operate along the diagonals.
As you maybe saw in the above video clip, this made gameplay by the Queen much slower and, by today's rules, certainly limited power to attack the enemy and protect her own side.
