The King of Brobdingnag and Gulliver are very close, with both the King and Queen having a special affection and fondness for Gulliver. Gulliver and the King discuss many aspects of culture germane to Europe and Brobdingnag. At one point Gulliver provides the King advice as to agricultural policy. To show his distaste, the King makes Gulliver kneel in front of him and lick the ground in front of his feet.
