Queen Maliphone ruled Bethos with her husband King Polonius. When Maliphone was pregnant, Polonius visited the Oracle of Delphi who prophesied that a child not born of the house of Bethos would one day rule. Maliphone convinced her husband to have every child in the province who was under the age of one imprisoned.
In a crude translation, "Maliphone" can mean "evil sound", from the Latin malus, ("evil") and the Greek phone ("sound").
