Madame Lenormand Fortune Telling Cards

Made by Müller, Switzerland. The Lenormand cards in general have always been popular with card readers. They read in a very practical every day way. There's no metaphysical or psychological layer, the way there is with Tarot. Some readers say they like the Lenormand to read about action and the Tarot about feelings. That meanings for the cards may differ from country to country, so a Lenormand reader will say he/she reads, French, Belgian, German, Dutch, South American or free-style.

Mary Greer has shown that the earliest forerunner of the Lenormand cards is a 1796 book in English. See her blog: Mary K. Greer's Tarot Blog

King of Diamonds: “The Great Hanged One”. Said to be the unluckiest card in the pack. Mme Lenormand drew it three times running when telling the fortune of Joachim Murat, King of Naples. He was horrified, but inexorable fate led to his execution in 1815.
