Still, the power of the King is greatly underestimated. A Commoner is known to be of more value than a Knight, and a Bishop as well. Does this apply to its royal version or are there other factors? One of them in proponency of a superior Knight-King would be that it moves divergent from most other pieces, so it is not so easily countered.
