Playing cards were invented in Imperial China. They were found in China as early as the 9th century during the Tang Dynasty (618–907). Playing cards first entered Southern Europe in the 14th century, probably from Mamluk Egypt, using the Mamluk suits of cups, coins, swords, and polo-sticks, and which are still used in traditional Latin decks.
