Can the king move two spaces?

The king, in chess, can only move two spaces when performing a move called "a Castle". This can only be performed when there is no piece between the King and closest Rook (so the bishop and the knight have advanced along the board), and neither the king nor the closest rook have been previously moved. If that is the case, then you can move the king two spaces toward the rook, and place the rook to the space immediately to the left of the King. This is called a Castle, and this is the ONLY time the king can move two space during the duration of one game. Outside of this move, the king only moves one space at a time. - answer provided by black atticus
