Curiosities in the game of kings

Chess has fascinated for centuries - its rules are easy to learn and its incredible depth is only accessible to experienced players (of whom I unfortunately do not count). In the following, I will deal with two entertaining questions: Is it possible, by a correct sequence of moves, to reach a position in which the black king is attacked by two white queens at the same time? Is this also possible by two white rooks?


Both questions can be answered in the affirmative and proven by simply giving an example:

Curiosities in the game of kings White on train: g7xh8T+

P.S: Strictly speaking, you would have to give the course of the game to reach this position.
