This is an answer to the old comment by George Duke: when I had to name the knighted wazir piece, I looked it up in Derzhanski's list and found that the name Marquis was a good one. I don't know what names Duke had in mind when he wrote the comment, but there is the name Thoat from the game Jetan dating from 1922 and the is the name Emperor (given, e.g., by Jelliss) which was once known among problemists.

Correction: NW is emperor, prince is the NF in problemist's tradition.
