Queen of hearts and king
The King of Clubs and the Queen of Hearts by Louisa May AlcottThe King of Clubs and the Queen of Hearts is a short story by Louisa May Alcott. Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 - March 6, 1888) was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Good Wives, Little Men and Jos Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard. With her pen name Louisa wrote novels for young adults in juvenile hall. Published in 1868, Little Women is set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House, in Concord, Massachusetts and is loosely based on Alcotts childhood experiences with her three sisters. The novel was very well received and is still a popular childrens novel today. Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist. She died in Boston. Alcott was born on November 29, 1832, in Germantown, which is now part of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on her fathers 33rd birthday. She was the daughter of transcendentalist and educator Amos Bronson Alcott and social worker Abby May and the second of four daughters: Anna Bronson Alcott was the eldest; Elizabeth Sewall Alcott and Abigail May Alcott were the two youngest. The family moved to Boston in 1838, where Alcotts father established an experimental school and joined the Transcendental Club with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Bronson Alcotts opinions on education and tough views on child-rearing shaped young Alcotts mind with a desire to achieve perfection, a goal of the transcendentalists. His attitudes towards Alcotts sometimes wild and independent behavior, and his inability to provide for his family, sometimes created conflict between Bronson Alcott and his wife and daughters.
King And Queen Of Hearts
She is a foul monarch who is quick to decree death sentences at the slightest offense. Carroll himself pictured her as "a blind fury". The Queen has only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small--she orders an immediate execution, shouting: "Off with his head! After falling down the rabbit hole, Alice enters the garden, where three playing card gardeners 2, 5, and 7 of Spades are frantically painting white roses red. When Alice questions this activity, they explain that they have planted the wrong color of rosebush, and must paint the white roses to hide their mistake from the Queen. The gardeners advise Alice to prostrate herself on the ground to avoid being confronted by the Queen of Hearts, but she ignores this advice and looks the Queen in the eye. When the Queen arrives and asks Alice who is lying on the ground the backs of all playing cards look alike , Alice tells her that she does not know.

Queen Of Hearts
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.
The slightly timid husband of the loud-mouthed Queen of Hearts , the King of Hearts is a co-ruler of Wonderland. He secretly pardons most of their subjects after his wife sentences them to death The Duchess wasn't pardoned by the King. All of his servants are the playing cards. Most people in Wonderland like the King better than the queen because he is kinder. After Alice left the March Hare and The Mad Hatter , she came into the garden and saw his servants painting the roses red frantically because the queen likes them red. So when Alice disobeys the queen the king reminds his wife that Alice is only a child.
