This is not a pack of playing-cards but a folding double postcard. It was printed in 1915 and shows rulers and military leaders of four of the allied forces in WWI. The dating results from the facts that Italy entered the war only in 1915, and John French (on the Jack of Clubs) was Commander-in-Chief only until December 1915.
The people shown are:
|Clubs:||King||GIORGIO V, George V, King of Great Britain|
|Queen||MARY, his wife|
|Jack||FRENCH, John French, Commander-in-Chief of the 'British Expeditionary Force'|
|Spades:||King||NICOLA II, Nikolaus II, Tsar of Russia|
|Queen||FEDOROVNA, Alexandra Fyodorovna, his wife|
|Jack||GRANDUCA NICOLA, Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian forces|
|Hearts:||King||VITT. EMANUELE III, Victor Emanuel III, King of Italy|
|Queen||ELENA, his wife|
|Jack||CADORNA, Luigi Cadorna, Commander-in-Chief of the Italian forces|
|Diamonds:||King||POINCARÉ, Raymond Poincaré, President of France|
|Queen||REP. FRANCESE, Marianne as symbol of the French Republic|
|Jack||JOFFRE, Joseph Joffre, Commander-in-Chief of the French forces|
The postcard was printed by Alfieri & Lacroix in Milano. The two sides of the postcard are shown at the bottom. On the card, the Italians are arranged in the top row.
