    I didn't specify it. But you're right to look to the past.

    all depends whether black can castle...if both kings or rooks have moved, then you are right. But, if black can castle (and so white cant) solution doesnt exist (at least I cant find any). It is impossible to know without a movelist. (speaking about mate in 3 problem)

    Pretty obvious, since white king has moved (the rook at d4 must have come from h1) so 1.Rad1!

    EDITED: Now all I need to find out why Black cannot castle 🙂
