Each side gets two queens starting on their first rank (row).
The queen can move and attack any number of squares vertically, horizontally or diagonally (combining the moves of the rook and bishop).
The most powerful piece in chess, attacking more squares than any other piece.
Because the queen is the strongest piece, a pawn is promoted to a queen in the vast majority of cases.
