The queen is the most powerful piece on the chessboard.
She can move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. It’s like combining the powers of a rook and knight.
The queen can go to any of the 64 squares of a chessboard in a straight line vertically, horizontally, or diagonally, as long as those squares are unoccupied by its pieces.
The queen captures by occupying the square on which an enemy piece is standing, and then taking the enemy piece off the board.
The queen in chess can also be brought back to life after being captured or there could be an extra queen if the player still has their queen on the board.
This technique is called Promotion and it happens when a player’s pawn reaches the opponent’s last rank. For White, that’s the first rank, and for Black, that’s the eighth rank.
Pawn promotion to a queen is popularly called “queening” among chess players.
So that’s it. The queen move is very simple and basic and doesn’t require much brain power.
