Ok, that's a good name

From the Wikipedia article on the card game Faro:

The 18th century Dutch cavalry commander Casimir Abraham von Schlippenbach (1682 - 1755) also mentions the game (as Pharaon) in his memoirs. Apparently, he was able to win considerable sums of money with the game.

Old Casimir got around, with one Dutch source saying (translation by Google) "He fought along in the great European wars, but he also stood out in love offensives. His memoirs cover both activities."
