Alice and the White Queen [1]

La Dame Blanche,
a WinBoard compliant chess engine by Marc-Philippe Huget, written in C++ [2]. La Dame Blanche played two French Computer Chess Championships, the FCCC 1997 and FCCC 1998, and was first released in January 1999 [3]. La Dame Blanche applies Alpha-Beta with killer heuristic, and uses rotated bitboards to determine sliding piece attacks.

Marc-Philippe dedicated his program to Alan Turing and Mikhail Botvinnik, who inspired him to write a chess program, and further used GNU Chess and EXchess for his first ideas [4]. Along with La Dame Blanche, Marc-Philippe realized a Book Builder as open source program, to convert a PGN file into an opening book [5].
