The kings gambit is an opening characterised by the moves e4, e5, f4. It is the end position after these three moves which makes the opening the kings gambit. If the opponent does not initially comply, for example by playing the french defence e6, then the kings gambit cannot be played.

Nevertheless, you may still be able to transpose into a kings gambit in some lines, for instance e4 d6 nc3 e5 f4.
