The King of Hearts is the consort of the Queen of Hearts, and, unlike most instances, is generally the lesser of
the two monarchs. He is much smaller than his wife, as well as meeker. While he tries to please his wife, at the same time, he is one of the few people who is able to change her mind about anything, such as altering Alice's beheading to a trial instead. He seems to act more like a son to his wife than a husband, as he asks her to put Alice on trial in a childlike manner, and she pats him on the head like he were a child after taking his suggestion for the trial, as well as using him as a shield against an oversized Alice. Unfortunately, he is only created in Alice's dreams, and vanishes from her mind once she awakens.
