Thought this was interesting

Did you know that traditionally the face cards of a playing deck were referred to by particular names? One source gives them these monikers:


SPADES HEARTS DIAMONDS CLUBS
King David Charles Cesar Alexander
Queen Pallas Judith Rachel Argine
Jack Hogier Lahire Hector Lancelot

I knew the kings were representative of famous kings/leaders of the past, but I was never sure which ones. I knew Caesar and Charles for sure. I had no idea about the queens and jacks, but always thought one of the queens was Cleopatra (Queen of the Nile).

Edit: BTW it is rather usless info. Probably posted it to boost your post count, huh? Very Happy
