  24. Actually, the King of Hearts is based off of Charles the 7th of France. He was the only king to be alive to see his face on a playing card, and the reason he is stabbing himself in the head? Well, towards the end of his life Charles was bedridden with illness and took up playing cards and card games to pass the time. After two years and the illness affecting his brain, he became paranoid about the number 13, and how the King is the 13th card in the suit. And his life ended when someone entered his chambers to find him standing with a sword in his left hand. He said something ominous and then stabbed himself in the side of the head until he was dead. And that is why the King of Hearts shows the sword stabbing himself in the head, although nowadays it is less graphic, and where the name of Suicide King comes from.

  25. That was interesting about the David card being put on dead Commies. Davidovich Trotsky accord to wiki created the Commie army.

  28. Some jacks wear moustaches in certain decks. For instance, I have two decks of cards. In one of them the Jacks of Hearts has a mustache, a mean face, white hair, and his face is frontal. In my other deck the same Jacks of Hearts is blond, has a sweet face, holds a feather, is sitting down with an axe in the back, and has a profile face. Well, all I can think of that Kings, Queens, and Jacks represent many different nobles from different eras. That's all.
