King Polonius ruled Bethos with his wife Queen Maliphone. When Maliphone was pregnant, Polonius visited the Oracle of Delphi. She told him that one day a child not born of the house of Bethos would rule his kingdom. In order to try to avoid this prophecy, Polonius ordered all the children in the province who were less than one year old to be rounded up and imprisoned. Hercules and Iolaus were able to stop Polonius before any children were harmed. He was killed in a fight with Trinculos and Maliphone was exiled.
- Polonius is a character in William Shakespeare's Hamlet, but it's not clear if there is meant to be a connection.
