The "spades" stood for plkemen or sol diers, the clubs for clover, typifying farmers; the diamonds for building tiles, representing artisans, and ths hearts for cbolrmen or ecclesiastics. The "kings" and "queens" at that time were more or less correct likeness of certain royal and. noble personages. Even in our modern packs it is said 4bat one of the queens is a convention alized portrait of Elizabeth of York, who was engaged to the dauphin of France. The "knaves" -were then the king's jesters, and even these cards may be portraits. All the court cards. In fact, retain their sixteenth century charac teristics.
