I hope this is the right place to post my question - it doesn't really have much to do with usual topics.
A good friend of mine pointed out to me, last night, that the Jack of clubs is the only court card in a regular deck of playing cards that faces a
different direction to all of the others. We spent some time trying but didn't have much luck searching up an answer as to why this is so. Can
anyone, please, enlighten me?
All I could find about the Jack of clubs is that he is traditionally thought to represent Lancelot or Judas Maccabeus. No mention of why he
faces the other way, though.
Thanks, one and all.
