Tarot cards were invented in Italy between 1410 and 1430. The idea was to extend the existing 4 suit card decks by adding special cards that could beat any of the normal suited cards. These extra cards, and the games played with the extended deck, weree called Trionfi, which is the root of the word for trumps.
