First card decks were created a long time ago, but we don’t know when and where exactly. The most accepted theory is that they were made in China first, in the 10th century.
After several centuries, cards were brought to Europe as well.
This most likely happened by the end of the 13th century, and the first European countries who most likely first saw cards were Italy and Spain.
Not many people could afford to own cards at first because they were such an expensive item. They needed to be hand-made and hand-painted, and that prolonged the time of their making.
This process was also expensive. When cheaper ways of making cards were discovered, they became affordable to others and not just to the rich.
