Playing cards are very popular game props in the world, as well as very important gambling props. It is very popular in China. There are dozens of ways to play. I am afraid that only mahjong can compete with poker. There are far more players than chess. Poker was invented by Europeans, and later perfected and regulated by the Americans. Only today is the 54-card poker. Therefore, playing cards also incorporate many elements of Western civilization. For example, the characters printed on the four suits of the three cards of K, Q, and J are representative of the West. By the way, the suits on playing cards are actually divided into big and small. The largest is spades, followed by hearts, then diamonds, and the smallest is grass flowers.
So who are the world’s celebrities printed on playing cards? Let us introduce them one by one. The first is K, which stands for “King” which means king. All four cards are famous Western monarchs. The biggest is the king of spades, with King David on it. It is the most famous king of the Israeli Jews. It is the prototype of a very famous sculpture by Michelangelo. Yes, it is the one without clothes and holding one in his hand. The wind-like man of the pebbles. This sculpture describes the story of David defeating the giant Goliath with small stones when he was a shepherd boy. Later David unified Israel, captured Jerusalem, reformed religion, strengthened centralization, and became a generation of famous monarchs. The six-pointed star on the Israeli flag today is also called the Star of David, which actually means King David.
Above the king of hearts is Charles the Great, the king of the Frankish kingdom. Everyone knows that after the split and fall of the Roman Empire, Europe immediately fell into a great division. Until today, the glory of the Roman Empire in unifying Europe has not been realized. However, in history, the only time closest to unity was the Holy Roman Empire established by Charlie, and Charlie was therefore called Charlemagne. This buddy can be said to be the greatest monarch since the Roman Empire. He developed education, paid attention to economy, and shaped the embryonic form of European civilization. People also call him the “father of Europe.”
Cube K is more famous, he is the famous ancient Roman dictator, the uncrowned king Julius Caesar. The experience and personality of this buddy are very similar to Liu Bang, the Chinese emperor of Han Dynasty. Beginning as a ruined nobleman, after a series of legendary experiences, with the support of Pompey and Crassus, he became one of the three giants of ancient Rome, until later became the last dictator of the ancient Roman Republic, and laid the foundation of the later Roman Empire. , Became one of the most famous monarchs in European history.
Caohua K is the King of Macedonia Alexander the Great. Although Alexander is ranked last, in terms of merit, I am afraid that Alexander the Great is the most powerful. In his heyday, he occupied and ruled all known areas. Africa, Europe, and Asia were basically all human places except China. Three of the world’s four major civilizations were within his rule. If there were no Gobi and Himalayas, he would have liked to catch the fire with the Seven Heroes of the Warring States Period at that time. Although he and his empire were extremely short-lived, their degree of splendor was undisputed. In that era before the end of the slavery society, it was an amazing thing to be able to capture all the places that can be found on the map.
Let’s talk about Q, which stands for “Queen”, which means queen or queen. The biggest Q of spades is printed on Eleanor, the queen of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I. It is the only one of the four Qs who has a weapon in his hand. Together with her husband, she and her husband are working together to save the distressed Holy Roman Empire and fight against the powerful Ottoman Turk Empire. In that era of turbulent social changes, for the integrity of the empire Independently make a great contribution.
The Q of Hearts is Jules, the queen of Louis XIV of the French Bourbon dynasty. Her husband is the famous Sun King, one of the three great monarchs in the world at that time, and the last star of glory in the age of imperial power. The reason why she was printed on playing cards is also very simple. That’s because French culture has always been a European style, and nobles in various countries have always spoken French and used French goods as their fashion. Jules was the last famous, virtuous, and aristocratic queen of the French imperial power era.
Square Q is Queen Mary II of England. She was first the Queen of the Netherlands. Later her father was deposed in the Glorious Revolution, because it was Protestants who were called Queen of England in the group. Compared to his fame, he certainly cannot compare with the later Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, but in which era of the emerging bourgeoisie, Mary II, as the first queen of the new era, represents a new social form and new style. The noble royal family.
Meihua Q is printed by the famous Swedish Queen Christina, who is as famous as Wu Zetian of China. You want this queen to be more bullish. She enthroned at the age of 6, and in just over ten years, she took back the crown and made the country prosperous and strong quickly. More importantly, when she was a little girl, she had reached the pinnacle of human life, and then resigned from her position as queen and traveled to Europe. I think there are tens of millions of women in this world, and there is probably no second person who has this kind of experience and courage.
As for J, that is, “Jack” means knight, referring to four famous knights in Europe. J of spades is Charlemagne’s attendant Hogill, J of hearts is Prince Kant of Louis XIV, square J is Charles the Great’s attendant and the head of the twelve paladins, Roland, and the last flower J is King Frey of Bohemia.
