THIS IS THE RED QUEEN PIECE FOR THE RED SIDE IN THE GAME OF CHESS
Queen Yolande of Aragon (1384-1442) | Queen of mystery and calculation, Yolande was pragmatic, deeply principled, highly intelligent and famously beautiful. She also helped Joan of Arc. Queen Yolande played a crucial role in the struggles between France and England, influencing events such as the financing of Joan of Arc's army in 1429 that helped tip the balance in favor of the French. Yolande of Aragon made the crucial decision to support the French against the allied English and Burgundians.
MOVEMENT | The queen is the most powerful of all the chess pieces and is often used in early and forceful attacks. The queen may move any number of unoccupied squares in any direction -- horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, giving her the greatest range of legal moves in the game. In the Persian game of Shatranj, the ancestor of chess that included only male figures, the closest thing to the queen was the ferz, a weak piece only able to move or capture one step diagonally and not at all in any other direction. The modern chess queen gained power in the 15th century.
HELPING OTHER WOMEN | This chess piece (like the entire Woman Warrior Chess Set Collection) is inspired by Japanese kimonos and medieval carvings. Each piece is named after a female warrior to promote examples of legendary female fighters. My goal is to help women's shelters by providing art and art supplies for children. _____________________________________________________________________________
