Portrayed By Denise O'Connell
Appearance "A Star to Guide Them"
Affiliations King Polonius
Series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys

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.

Maliphone was a devout worshiper of Hera as she prayed to her for help. Hera sent her soldiers to help supplement the Bethos soldiers in the fight against Hercules.

Hercules and Iolaus were able save the children before any harm came to them. Maliphone was exiled from Bethos after Polonius was killed in a fight with Trinculos.

In a crude translation, "Maliphone" can mean "evil sound", from the Latin malus, ("evil") and the Greek phone ("sound").
