'ABCLargeCV': An important family of chesses, a crowded art(because 50-100 instances extant), Aberg's is a left-right reflection of the original 17th century Carrera's. 'H.E.Bird had made an earlier variation(50 yrs. before) of Capablanca Chess.' And Chinese alchemists made gunpowder 500 yrs. before it was invented in 14th century Europe. Seriously, extreme free castling, where Rook ends up not necessarily even adjacent to King, makes sense. Carrera's and Aberg's spread out the compounds maximally whilst keeping Rooks at familiar corners. Piece-value table shows Bishop ahead of Knight on 8x10 though still close.
