King Llort, also simply known as Llort, is the husband of Queen Gnorga and the secondary antagonist in Don Bluth's 1994 animated fantasy film A Troll in Central Park. He is the king of the trolls. He is not nearly as evil, or competent, as his wife. He frequently wears a puffy white wig similar to George Washington's hair, and is constantly attacked by Gnorga's dog.
Role in the film
At first, Llort stops Gnorga from turning Stanley to stone and instead convinces her to send him to New York City, where he says "nothing grows", so this is a blatant fib. Later on, when Gnorga finds out Stanley survived, she gets extremely infuriated and abusive at Llort and starts hollering at him.
When she goes to Central Park, she forces him to come with her and he helps kidnap Rosie, and stops Gnorga from stoning her when she gets mad afterwards, getting into a fight with his wife. After Gnorga is defeated and turns into a bush, Llort is sucked up with her in the tornado and appears in the final scene of the movie reading a newspaper revealing that Llort has usurped Gnorga as the supreme ruler of the Troll Kingdom, glad of her transformation. It is possible that (given Stanley's charges dropping) Llort rules much fairer than Gnorga.
