Where is 5th and 6th variations?

Thank you, David. I thought it meant perhaps that it was invincible. lol. I usually think of them as 'guards' but am very familiar with the 'commoner' or non-royal king terminology too. Sometimes 'Man.'

Jeremy, that is a traditional way of describing a 'nonroyal king'. On this site we (mostly) use the name 'commoner' for such pieces.

'It moves one square in any direction, but may be placed or left en prise.' What does that mean, exactly? I know 'en prise' means that it can be taken but how exactly does this affect the movement of the queen?
