The chess queen was not originally a queen, but the king’s vizier. In India (where chess was invented), Persia, and the Middle East, the king’s vizier was the senior bureaucrat in the government, managing things in the king’s name. The king made policy, but the vizier implemented it. This is why the king and queen move in the same directions, but the queen moves farther than the king does. The vizier piece was renamed as the queen when the game came to Europe, because European kings didn’t usually have viziers.
