Answers
Leontes and Polixenes are best friends, having been raised together. Their friendship has endured though they are rulers of separate countries. When Leontes mistakenly believes that Polixenes has had an affair with Leontes' wife, the two men become estranged and don't speak for sixteen years. When Perdita is returned to Sicilia as a young woman and her true identity revealed, the friendship between Polixenes and Leontes is restored.
