Each and every color has a meaning and each and every court card was specifically chosen.The star of the deck, Odin, is the main god of the Æsir, the pantheon of Norse gods. He exchanged an eye to be able to drink from the Well of Wisdom and was the god of battle, poetry, magic, and perhaps not surprisingly, wisdom. Two of his sons, Thor and Balder, are the King of Clubs and Hearts, respectively. The King of Diamonds is Njord, a member of the Vanir race, with whom the Æsir were at war. When they were negotiating a peace treaty, Njord was selected to join the Æsir in what amounted to a hostage exchange. The Queens of each suit are wives of that suit's King and all but one of the Jacks are sons of that suit's King. Since two of Odin's sons are Kings themselves, the Jack of Spades is represented by Odin's trusted ravens Hugin and Munin (Thought and Memory).
