PostSubject: Playing card   Mon Nov 15, 2010 3:42 am

In a deck of playing cards, the term face card is generally used to describe a card that depicts a person. Cards depicting persons were developed in Europe, possibly in the late 14th century; it is believed that earlier sets of cards included "court cards" that showed abstract designs, and not persons.

Europeans changed the court cards to represent European royalty and attendants, thereby forming the original face cards: king, chevalier, and knave (or servant).

A deck of modern (Anglo-American) playing cards has the following face cards:

* Jack
* Queen
* King

A deck of Italian playing cards has the following face cards (which are worth 10, 9 and 8 respectively, as there are only 10 cards per suit):

* King/Re - a man standing, wearing a crown
* Knight/Horseman/Cavaliere - a man sitting on a horse
* Jack/Fante - a younger man standing, without a crown

or (depending on the regional variant):

* King/Re - a man standing, wearing a crown
* Dame/Donna - a younger woman standing, without a crown
* Knight/Horseman/Cavaliere - a man sitting on a horse
