Reldresal

Principal secretary for private affairs in the court of Lilliput, and great friend of Gulliver. When it was proposed to put the Man-Mountain to death for high treason, Reldresal moved as an amendment, that the “traitor should have both his eyes put out, and be suffered to live that he might serve the nation.” (Swift: Gulliver's Travels; Voyage to Lilliput.)
