Tarot Triumphs: Although the jongleurs peaked in the thirteenth century and were in decline by the fifteenth century, the period from which we have the first Tarot examples, they were by no means extinct. I have no direct evidence to show that the jongleurs had an early version of Tarot in their possession, but some of the Tarot Triumphs seem to be closely linked to their type of showman activities. At the very least, their work could have provided strong images for some of the early Trumps, as witnessed by the early creators of Tarot at jongleur performances. Or they could have been retained in folk memory as stock images even if the actual performances were not so prevalent anymore, just as we still have strong and rather romantic images of the highwayman, pirate, wandering minstrel, and May Queen in our heritage, even if they no longer exist in real life in that form.
