Yes, the entire object of the game is to see which side can defeat the other's king first. The king is usually the most difficult to kill, because players usually try to guard it closely and keep it from harm in order to win.

Yes, any piece on the Chess board can either: # Checkmate the king or # Put it in check. However, the queen actually ends up being one of the deciding pieces in the endgame. With it, a player can dominate the board.

yes, if your king is protected by other chess pieces but that's called getting a checkmate if you capture a king by a king

no, because your queen can go in any direction meaning if your king is next to it, it's in check and that means you need to move to a different spot to get out of check.

In chess, any piece may capture any other piece except the king, which can only be checkmated (in check with no square to escape). Even the lowly pawn can checkmate the King.

Kings can't be killed in chess. It is possible for knight to hold a king in check and contribute to a checkmate.

Yes , the queen can capture the king and this ends the game since the king's capture is the goal of the game of chess .
