The French Marseille Tarot deck's exact origins are unclear, but it is believed to have been created in the 18th century in the French city of Marseille. The deck is based on earlier Italian Tarot decks, but the Marseille version has distinct artistic and symbolic features, including simplified illustrations that focus on the essentials of each card's meaning.

The deck's creation was likely influenced by the growing popularity of Tarot as a divination tool in Europe during the 18th century, as well as the Marseille region's history as a hub of trading and commerce. The Marseille Tarot was originally intended for use in games rather than divination, but it gradually became associated with the latter, especially after the publication of Antoine Court de Gébelin's "Le Monde primitif" in 1781, which claimed that Tarot was linked to ancient Egyptian mysticism.

The French Marseille Tarot deck has since become one of the most widely recognized and popular Tarot decks, with its bold and simple designs inspiring countless variations and adaptations. Its timeless appeal lies in its straightforward symbolism, which allows readers to easily interpret the cards and focus on the message they convey.
