The Quang Trung Queen moves and captures three paces orthogonally or two paces diagonally while jumping over any piece. See Figure-6 in the Quang Trung Chess page. This piece has the same movement diagram as the Golem, without the special rules Sean Duggan has added.

Quang Trung Chess also has the Elephant, moving like a Camel. Mark Hedden (see my 2007-05-02 comment) is the only person to use a piece combining Queen and Elephant moves.
