A is the first card representing various suits, and only one symbol representing the suit is printed on this card. In most card games including bridge, the ace is the highest card; it is also the largest card in all suits. Britain used to use the ace of spades as a sign of tax payment.
Now let us take a look at the characters on the playing cards. The J, Q, and K in French playing cards are the abbreviations of the English servant, queen, and king. At present, the 12 head cards that we often see represent a real or legendary character in history.
K: The king of spades is David, the father of Israeli King Solomon in the 10th century BC. He played the harp well, so there are often harp patterns on the screen. The King of Hearts is King Charles I Frank, named Charleman, the only king without a beard among the four kings. The square K is the king of the Roman Empire, Caesar, and is the only profile figure among the four king cards. Plum K was the first Macedonian King Alexander to conquer the world. He always wears cross jewelry on his clothes.
