A king, also known as a male queen, is a character seen in many books about absolute monarchies, parliamentary monarchies, electoral monarchies, constitutional monarchies, and several types of monarchy. A king is also a chess piece which stands behind a pawn, indicating his subservience to this pawn. Thus, he is obviously being controlled by pawns, peasants, and peons of many varieties while struggling to kill the enemy king and being under the complete control of a mysterious entity known only as "The Chess Player."
