Over Fifty In My Kingdom

There are over fifty members in my family;
Yet none quarrel. We all live merrily.

Four leaders have we, all with a bride;
Each has a son who has great pride.

We also have servants who make funny gestures;
But they are hardly used, as they often pester.

The peasants are at the bottom of the line;
Although they outnumber us, they haven't a right mind.

What are we?

this was stupid.. why dont the numbers have a right mind? and what makes the jacks the children?

Where do you get 54 cards in a standard deck? Surely a standard deck is 4 suits (Hearts, Spades, Diamonds, Clubs) with Ace through to King in each suit (A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K) giving 13 cards in each suit.

4 x 13 is 52. What are the other 2 cards?

Good riddle though.

That was pretty cool ! and yeaah i got a riddle.

rowly - The other 2 cards are the Jokers which are not often used

I feel like I should respond here to rowly75:

"We also have servants who make funny gestures;
But they are hardly used, as they often pester."

It may be a regional thing, but the "Jesters" referred to in the explanation are known as Jokers to most Americans. 52 cards + 2 jokers = 54. Most people don't use Jokers, so they are "hardly used."

Fifty-TWO cards in a standard deck.
If some companies make decks with two jokers, some with one, and some with none, the jokers can hardly be considered "standard" members of the deck...

One of the few teasers I actually got correct.
gambiteero
Aug 27, 2008

this was a poor teaser. the jacks are not the sons of the king and queen. jacks are actually the servants!!!

the jacks used to be called knaves (who are servants) but it was changed, due to confusion between the kings and knaves (K and Kn)

do the research!

First glance had me thinking the US with its 50 states + additional territories, but Senators, governors etc. didn't fit the clues. Got it on my second read through, though.

Fun & not-too-difficult. Thanks! Have great weekends all!

Got it as soon as I saw the fifty. Sorry, but there are just way too many riddles about a deck of cards.
TallTimberAus*

Pretty easy, but fun. Every time I actually get one, I congratulate myself.
auntiesisAus*

Still cute, but easy.

I agree, it was too easy.

I thought it was fun and got it right away. I think a lot of people are too picky on what should be a fun site.

Sorry I'm so dumb, but , Doehead--what does AROB mean? I see you use it quite a bit.

I did this one before in 2011. I guess I am getting used to these because this time I got it on the first line. EASY!

Thought it was easy 3 years ago and still think the same (at least my mind isn't slipping I guess).
Started to think deck of cards after the first stanza. The second sealed it.

Solved it after the third line, too easy.

I solved this one quickly and I liked the way it was written. Thanks for posting. It doesn't bother me that it was used 3 yeas ago. Hopefully we have new players who will see this for the first time.

I'm just wondering why the number cards haven't a right mind. Good riddle, though a bit cliché.
eighsseAus*
Aug 26, 2014

@myself: Maybe because they have no person on the cards, hence no heads, hence no brains, hence no minds?

Got it. Interesting title.
