The capitalists of the late 19th century became know as the "Robber Barons".
"Business leaders from about 1865 to 1900 were, on the whole, a set of ... rascals who habitually cheated and robbed investors and consumers, corrupted government, fought ruthlessly among themselves, and in general carried on predatory activities comparable to those of the robber barons of medieval Europe." ~ Hal Bridges
The kings and jacks in these decks depict those who build empires through ruthless means and the queens are women that spent their life's energy to liberate those oppressed in many ways. It's a story of juxtaposition; misuse of power and strength from weakness, oppression and liberation... This is Titans, these are the Robber Barons.
