It strikes me that in fantasy fiction all diplomats are doublecrossers, and all diplomatic effort is either a waste of time for weaklings, or else even worse, just a ruse to let the bad guys take the good kingdom in an unexpected rush. The most notable diplomat if fantasy is Wormtongue...and I think his name pretty much says it all. That slimy guy that gave Queen Gorgo grief in 300 comes to mind as well.
