It's interesting... I'm russian, in Russian queen is really called 'ferz', when we talk about games we tells 'I moved ferz', but sometimes we tells 'queen', mainly when translate foreign films and computer games with chess and always, when draw chessmen as people, draw ferz as woman... Looks like, english mens' assertion what the strongest piece, wich stays close to king, must be king's wife is infectious :). Nevermind, i am interested: how modern queen is called in languages of the Near and Middle east? Queen or ferz? Does someone know it?
