Can any piece Take a queen in chess?
Like the King, the Queen can move in any direction.

3.7e When a player, having the move, plays a pawn to the rank furthest from its starting position, he must exchange that pawn as part of the same move for a new queen, rook, bishop or knight of the same colour on the intended square of arrival. This is called the square of 'promotion'.
What happens when you capture the queen in chess?

When can you exchange queens in chess?
