Queen of Spades stoneware ash tray modeled by Harry Simeon and produced by Royal Doulton of Lambeth, England, between 1924 and 1929. The Queen of Spades was the highest-ranking card in the game and was often used as a symbol of power and wealth. In modern day, the Queen of Spades still holds a lot of power and mystery. She is often seen as a dark force, or even evil. However, she can also be a force for good. In early French playing card designs, the Queen of Spades was originally the Greek goddess, Pallas Athena. The Queen of Spades is part of a set along with the King of Clubs, Jack of Hearts and Queen of Diamonds.
