King David IS the King of Spades

Several people have expressed surprise or doubt about King David being one of the kings in a deck of cards. Here is a reference from the United States Playing Card company, the makers of Bicycle brand cards, that explains the history of playing cards. And yes, according to them, King David is the king of spades!

I did find some other sources that suggested that the figures never did represent anyone. But, as with everything, I prefer the sources that agree with me. :o)
