“Rook” is a mistranslation of an Old Arabic word for “Siege Tower” Could you elaborate on this? I don't see what you mean.

Abdication could be represented by putting [the prince] on top of 2 checkers

Or just replacing it with the king, since the latter gets removed from the board otherwise

What happens to a king after abdicating? Removed from board? If so, I presume that removal can't discover check on the newly crowned prince?

Do pawns only move 3 or 2 squares, or can they move fewer?
