Tarot cards of the current type date back to 15th century Italy and a game called “triumphs,” which is tarots in French.

The major arcana has such pictures as the Fool, the Devil, Temperance, the Hermit, the Sun, the Lovers, the Hanged Man, and Death while the minor arcana has the kings, or lords, queens, or ladies, knights and knaves, or pages or servants, of sticks or wands, cudgels or batons, swords, cups and coins.
