Each King in Chess represents the prize the opposition seeks to win, and therefore almost always plays a defensive role.
  1. A king cannot move in to a square where he could be captured since doing so would end the game.
  2. If the king and a rook have not yet moved, and they have no pieces in between them, the pieces may castle. This is accomplished by moving the king two squares toward the rook and then placing the rook on the other side of the king. Caveat: the king can not castle out of check, into check, or through check (the square between the king's current position and castled position must not be threatened).
