### The Eight Queens Puzzle

Max Bezzel published the eight queens puzzle in 1848.

The eight queens puzzle is the problem of placing eight chess queens on an 8×8 chessboard so that no two queens threaten each other. Thus, a solution requires that no two queens share the same row, column, or diagonal. The eight queens puzzle is an example of the more general *n* queens problem of placing *n* non-attacking queens on an *n×n* chessboard, for which solutions exist for all natural numbers *n* with the exception of *n*=2 and *n*=3.

You may start with a smaller board 4×4. Or cheat!
