The regular 52-card deck of playing cards contains 13 clubs. Additionally, there are 13 diamonds, 13 hearts, and 13 spades.
By the end of the 14th century, playing cards were widespread across Europe. The four card suits of early European designs were swords, batons, cups, and coins. In the 1480s, the French began manufacturing card decks containing hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades. During the 1590s, French playing cards were the most used throughout Europe.
Historically, the number of cards in a deck ranged from 48 to 56. By the late 15th century, however, the majority of card players had adopted a 52-card deck.
