Introducing the Tarot and History About it
Tarot is a game which is also famous as tarocchi and trionfi. The later was the first name of Tarot. While on the other hand, the former name (Tarocchi) is the modern name of Tarot. The set of these playing cards was introduced in the middle of the 15th century. Tarot is originated from European countries including Austria, France, and Italy. In the beginning, Tarot cards were limited as the game to play only. However, in the 18th-century Tarot cards were used as a trend for divination via cards reading. Cartomancy leading to custom packs developed for such occult purposes.
Although, some other countries of Europe also claim for the historical start of Tarot. Rather than wasting time to present their evidence and arguments in the support of Tarot origin, I would prefer to conclude that still, we are unclear about the actual history of Tarot cards. Nevertheless, the world agrees that Tarot cards were introduced by European countries in the 14th century. During that time, Tarot cards were commonly played by the people of Egypt and Mamluk with the suit of Polo and Batons sticks. The civilians of these countries were used to practice occult and divinatory Tarot. They named it Wands. The Tarot cards were highly linked with the occult and divinatory tarot in these areas as coins were considered as disks. The entire Tarot cards suits consisted of coins, cups, swords, and baton or polo. Such kind of Tarot suits was also common in traditional Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish communities for divination.
Historical information available on Tarot cards shows that Tarot cards were used for other purposes also apart from playing games as people linked such cards with occult and divination. In the beginning, Tarot cards were 1440 in European countries and 1450 in Ferrara, Bologna, Milan, and Florence. In the advanced Tarot card decks, triumph cards were also added which are now known as carte da trioinfi (in French) and Trumps (in English).
The history of Tarot cards is also projected by the shapes and images painted or printed on these cards. There are some interesting incidents and facts linked with these Tarot cards that are rarely in the knowledge of many card players. In Room, card players were used to designing cards with famous iconic leaders and objects. Thus Tarot cards is a way to learn about the history of European countries and ruling powers of these countries. Around hundreds of years, back painters painted Tarot cards with these famous objects and historical events that are still available in our Museums. You would be interested to know that still, 15 Tarot cards belonging to the 15th century are available in the museum. The suits of these15 cards are known as Visconti Sforza Tarot decks. During the 15th century, Duchy of Milan was the one most powerful ruler in Europe. The suit of ancient 15 Tarot cards was painted for him with colorful attractive objects while considering the interest of ruler in Tarot cards game. Furthermore, another suit of Tarot cards is available in Museum which belongs to 1420s.
