    If i have 2 kings on the board and one of them is mated but the other isn't do I lose the game or can the opponent take one of my kings?


    EDIT: I don't know all the rules of chess but it seems sily that one can have 2 kings!?

    It's not silly, it's illegal. How did you get two kings in the first place?

    Yes, pawns can promote to anything but a King once they make it to the other side.

    There is a fairy chess condition called "Rex Multiplex" (=multiple kings)

    Chess is so misogynist and polygamic.
