Fers (also Fersan or Alferza ; pers. Ferzin = "vizier", "advisor") is the name for a chess piece used in Schatrandsch , an early form of chess , which was later replaced by today's queen . He could only move one square at an angle in each move. The term Fers was mainly used in English, French and Latin manuscripts, although Latin books often referred to Fers as regina in the text and as fers in diagrams for reasons that were not clear .
In the Russian language , the term Ферзь (transcribed: Fers) is still used today for women .
