In a Deck of Cards, How Many Kings Are There?

In a regular deck of playing cards, there are four kings. Each of the four suits—hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades—has one king.

Of the three face card kinds, the king has the highest ranking. The queen and jack are the next two cards after the king. The ace is typically the top card and the only card ranked above a king in a game.

There are 52 total cards in a normal deck, which are distributed equally across the four suits. There are cards in each suit for the numbers two through ten in addition to the face cards and the aces.
