Quite long time ago (i did not knew about chess variants at that time) i watched TV-show, where 2 teams of children was drawing pictures and modeling in plasticine. Theme of one of contests was chess. First, they had to draw chess kingdom, then sculpt new chess pieces and explain, how they move. Besides other pieces, there was 'Horse-o-elephant' (knight and bishop are called horse and elephant in Russian lunguage), moves like knight and bishop. Looks like, chanselor and archbishop are simpliest chess variant pieces, as children re-invented one of them.
