The playing cards are inspired by the designs produced in Rouen, France, back in the 16th century. There are different theories about who the court cards represent, though it's hard to find a widely accepted one as the Rouen cards were so badly copied that the current designs are gross distortions of the original cards. For NOUVEAU, it was decided that the historical and mythological characters some believe were used for the creation of the first decks in Rouen. Considering that, the deck faces go like this:
- King of Diamonds as Roman leader Julius Caesar
- Queen of Diamonds as the biblical character Rachel
- Jack of Diamonds as the Greek mythological hero and prince Hector
- King of Clubs as the Greek King Alexander the Great
- Queen of Clubs as Eleanor of Aquitaine
- Jack of Clubs as the legendary Knight Sir Lancelot
- King of Hearts as the King Charlemagne
- Queen of Hearts as the biblical character Judith
- Jack of Hearts as the French military commander Étienne de Vignolles (aka La Hire)
- King of Spades as the biblical King David
- Queen of Spades as the Greek goddess Pallas Athena
- Jack of Spades as the legendary character Ogier the Dane
