abstract
  • The Knave of Hearts (real name: Ilosovic Stayne) is another fictional character from the old Alice in Wonderland stories and the secondary antagonist of Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland. Although he feigns loyalty to the Red Queen, he is in reality even more antagonistic than the mad tyrant and plays upon her insecurities in order to skillfully manipulate her into doing what he wants. He is taken from the traditional English nursery rhyme, The Queen of Hearts, and is based on a Jack of Hearts playing card as well as Niccolò Machiavelli. However, at the end of the film, upon being sentenced to being banished for eternity with the Red Queen the Knave of Hearts attempts to kill her, which shocks the Red Queen at first (as she was genuinely in love with him) but quickly infuriated her as the two were dragged off to the wastelands called the Outlands. In Alice Through the Looking Glass, his skeleton is shown chained to a throne with a blade embedded in his chest, indicating that the Red Queen stabbed him as revenge for trying to kill her upon return to her castle. His head later falls off at one point. He was portrayed by Crispin Glover, who also portrayed Grendel in the 2007 film Beowulf.
