If so, what was White's previous move?

NxNh2?

Yep, although it is probably self-evident to skeeter that he need not capture a knight and also that schakuhr's answer is wrong.

I will have to post a harder one. ðŸ˜›

I assume this is a typo and the last black move is -1...Kg1xNh2.

Nobody ever gave -1...Kg1xNh2 as black's last move. If his last move was only -1...Kg1-h2, there is nothing on h2!

Furthermore, after the forced -1...Kg1xNh2, White's previous move could be either -2.Nf1-h2 without capture, or -2.Nf1xh2 uncapturing a black Queen, Knight or Rook on h2. That's why the stip only asks for black's last move.

But 'without capture' would leave Black without a previous move, wouldn't it?
