Kniažyč

Often the owner of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania was his blood son-heir. Of all the sons, the Grand Duke approached the dearest prince of his soul, hoping that he would continue to move in the outlined political direction. For Gediminas such a son was Yavnut, Keystut and Algerd were preparing to replace Vytautas and Jagiello, Sigismund Augustus' father was chosen by the Grand Duke long before his death. It happened that the way of life of the prince's sons went towards the capital and the supreme power: Svalegot, the son of Viten, left one name in history, Andrei, the first son of Algerd, suffered parental disfavor.

From a young age, the chosen one together with his father joined the military campaigns, hardened courage and strength. When, for example, Vytautas first fought the Crusaders, he was 13 years old. In Belarusian-Lithuanian chess, a figure of an already experienced warrior and politician stands next to the prince, who helps the ruler to enter the palace and establish himself on the throne.

Knyazhych starts the game to the left of the prince: d1 - white; f9 - black. Can move in any direction, including diagonally, by one or two cells. He has the right to cross the throne and stand on it, fighting for power, but only if the condition is met: in the palace - not further than two cells from the throne - there is a prince.

When the prince leaves the field, the prince takes over the supreme power and control of the army. His coronation is a separate move of the party.

If the prince is no longer on the field, they can become a warrior who reached the edge of chess and thus proved his ingenuity.
