The reason these cards are called this way is due to the fact that they feature drawings of the members of the royal court. This is in contrast with the rest of the classic 52 card casino deck:

  • Cards from 2 to 10 feature a number;
  • Aces feature an insignia; 
  • A recent invention and a wild cardJokers are not considered to be face cards
