Legler's Chess (Neo-Chess) also replaces the a-file rooks with empresses and (in the revised version) the g-file knights with princesses. Before the internet, many chess variants were forgotten and their innovative ideas had to be reinvented later on.

Cohen's Error Chess (1977) probably did have some influence on Ralph Betza's Remarkable Rookies (Chess with Different Armies). Both variants replace the knights with W+D pieces, called Woody Rooks by Betza.
