  Eight queens puzzle (C) - LiteratePrograms
The eight queens problem is the problem of placing eight queens on an 8×8 chessboard such that none of them attack one another (no two are in the same row, column, or diagonal).
When resetting a queen that has passed off the bottom of the board, it is placed in the position after the previous queen, after the previous queen has itself been moved.
The answer is that a set of queens with no two in the same row or column correspond to the mathematical concept of a permutation or reordering of the first n integers.

The eight queens puzzle is a good example of a simple but non-trivial problem that can be solved by a recursive algorithm, by phrasing the n-queen problem inductively in terms of adding a single queen to any solution to the (n-1)-queen problem.

 Puzzle Playground - The Treasure at Medinet Solution
Actually, it was one of many puzzles based on the problem known as "the problem of the eight queens".
First proposed by Max Bezzel in 1848, general idea of this problem is to place the largest number of queens on a chess board so that no two queens are in the same row, column or diagonal.
Later it was proved that on a standard 8x8 chess board exactly eight queens can be placed so that no two queens attack each other.

Example: in the eight queens puzzle, if the eight queens are considered to be distinct, there are 3 709 440 distinct solutions.
Normally however, the queens are considered to be identical, and one says "there are 92 (= 3709440/8!) unique solutions up to permutations of the queens", signifying that two different arrangements of the queens are considered equivalent if the queens have been permuted, but the same squares on the chessboard are occupied by them.
If, in addition to treating the queens as identical, rotations and reflections of the board were allowed, we would have only 12 distinct solutions up to symmetry, signifying that two arrangements that are symmetrical to each other are considered equivalent.
