There are many pieces on the chess-board. The King is on e1, and the Queen is on d1. The eight pawns are on the 2nd rank(#2). The 2 Knights are on b1 and g1. The two Bishops are on c1 and f1. Those are the white pieces. The black pieces were symmetrical to the white ones. This is also the starting position.
