In the Mid-evil Chess pre-set and Elite Chess the Prince is the name of the piece that combines the move of queen and knight. Prince seems to be more in line with the Medieval jargon of the game, although you may still refer to it as the Amazon, just as a Rook is often called a castle, and a Knight called a horse.
