Getting a royal flush has never been so much fun! Doomed Queens Royal Playing Cards lends new meaning to the phrase "King takes Queen". Each of the 52 cards features a different female regent on each card except for the kings who include Henry VIII and Alexander the Great. Unfortunate female monarchs include Cleopatra (death by asp), Anne Boleyn (beheaded), as well as the not-so-well known Blanche of Bourbon (imprisoned in a castle), and Amalasuntha (death by hyper intellectualism). Cards include portrait and bio of each queen.
And remember: those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
