The description contains several errors: The right corner of White A
('South') must be a dark square. The book written by Theodor Müller-Alfeld
contains a rather long explanation why this MUST be so. The position of
the Queens and Kings must THEN be exchanged so that the Queens are on the
square of their own color.
