Monarch, (Monarch Chess)
an UCI compatible, free chess engine written in C by Steve Maughan. Monarch's board is internally represented as an array (Version 1.0 used bitboards and a pre-generated move table), performs PVS with checks searched at the first ply of the quiescence, in conjunction with SEE, killer and history heuristic, null move pruning with R = 3, ETC and IID, and the evaluation is based on piece square tables [1] .
