Let's guess that Yulia Latynina of Moscow, The Hundred Squares, was not aware of Parton's Neutral King CV when she wrote science fiction 'The Hundred Squares' positing one King by aliens; and their chagrin at Earthlings' two Kings. As Frolov points out probably she would be aware of Shogi and Xiangqi only not CVs.

Under Latynina's spell rather than Parton's, Frolov then among his 60 CVs, second only to Gilman's, adapts unbeknownst year 1953 Neutral King to Shogi, Neutral_King, and creditably Rules do disambiguate the best way in Shogi how One King behaves.
