Hi,

In some decks you get pages, knights, queens and kings. In others its queen, knight, prince and princess.

Which is which in each deck? 


Pollux  18 Jun 2002 
KING = sometimes KNIGHT (like Cosmic Tribe for example)
QUEEN = I don't know of any other frequent names
KNIGHT = PRINCE
PAGE = PRINCESS

If you are asking for a list of decks, with the specific associations, think it would take years to make one. However, on a general basis, RW-oriented decks go along with the first column, and Thoth-like with the second.

There are decks who introduce different names to courts as well.
For example, the Vision Quest (I LOVE IT! :D 1st column) and the Wolrd Spirit (Don't have it :( 2nd)
KING = FATHER = SAGE
QUEEN = MOTHER = SYBIL
PRINCE/KNIGHT = SON = SEEKER
PRINCESS/PAGE = DAUGHTER = SEER

Well, the final answer is... IT DEPENDS ON THE DECK! :)

Well, Goddess forgive me.
I forgot to say that at http://www.learntarot.com/decks1.htm you can browse decks and see the nam eof the courts and their "usual" correspondent.
For example here (http://www.learntarot.com/wddesc.htm), in the line "Court Cards" you can read the name for the World Spirit... It is the same for every other deck.
Hope this will help... :)

Yep Pollux got it

I think Crowley thought the highest court should be more active than the Rider Waite King, who sits on his duff all day hehe.

The Knight has to actively win the hand of the fair Queen to get his position, which I feel gives the Queen a sense of power about her,butothers disagree.

There was another thread on this, maye i can dig it up.

:THP
