The Dragon Queen

The queen is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally. Each player starts the game with one queen, placed in the middle of the first rank next to the king. 

In chess, the queen has mobility but less value, as the game can continue without her. On the other hand, the king, that has more value because if you lose the king you lose the game, has relatively much less power.

Chess historians believe that the piece we call as the queen today was originally known as the "advisor" and it was one of the weakest pieces on the board as it could only move one square diagonally. 

In the 15th century, history took some turns. The game of chess moved to European countries and several revisions were made to the existing chess rules. The rise of the chess queen is connected with the powerful female monarchs in Europe. 

We envisioned this particular chess piece as a dragon fruit because it is bright-colored and it exudes power and a lively attitude, the attitude of a winner, of a warrior.
