Queen Anne's Revenge
Heroes of Alexandre Dumas, like many educated people of the XVII с., loved the game of chess. Played the Cardinal, and King Louis, his courtiers and, of course, Queen Anne. We can not know in what strength she played.
But we know an interesting story.
The relationship between her and the king were not always pleasant. And one day she ordered to change the rules of chess in her salon.
She retired from the board otiose figure of the king. The principal piece was considered the queen: checkmate queen wins the game. If on the board destroyed all the pieces except khights and queens, it was a draw.
This game was called Chess Queen Anne, but has not received mass distribution. Maybe the Cardinal is to blame?
