Paris and Rouen patterns
The Parisian pattern, also of fifteenth-century origin, survived and, with modifications, became official for the whole of France. Each figure card bears a fairly consistent name. Emblems, gestures and clothes can be compared with the relevant Rouennais pattern in order to discover the identities of its unnamed courtiers.
In the following chart, the archaic French spellings have been rendered in modern English.
