I believe Tarot is mentioned in Rabelais (1494-1553), specifically in
Gargantua's games.
Of course I'm reading a translation, but someone else might know
whether or not it was 'Tarot' in the original.

I've been asked to teach Tarok/Tarocci as a period game. I'm having a
little trouble finding documentation for it. It's on Modar's games
site but without docs, and everything else I find about it smacks of a
post-period, even modern game still being played in Eastern Europe.

Can anyone shed light on the history of this card game?
