Queen of Svartalfheim

Alflyse is the queen of Svartalfheim and the Dark Elves of the eastern spires,[3] and the successor of Malekith.[4]

When Hercules, disguised as Thor, tried to confront the Dark Elves in Alflyse's castle, he was put through a series of tests. After proving his worth, he took her to find out how truly "evil" she was. The next morning, he awakened as the King of Svartalfheim and Alflyse's new husband, who ordered her troops to attack Midgard and Asgard to retake his throne. Spying on the whole affair, the Warriors Three decided that if Herc was going to be Thor, then they needed to find their own "Hercules". And out stepped Thor in a skirt, and feeling a draft.

When Thor discovered that Hercules had been impersonating him, he set out to prove nothing could beat the original. Thanks to this, Alflyse discovered that Hercules wasn't Thor and annulled the marriage, freeing Hercules from her.[5]

Svartalfheim Civil War

When Malekith the Accursed began his rebellion for the leadership of the Dark Elves, Alfyse gave the Dwarfs of Nidavellir mining rights in Svartalfheim in exchange of hiding her until the rebellion stopped, however, she was found by Malekith who attacked the fortress and eventually killed her, turning the Dark Elves into a state of chaos, civil war and greater division than before.[1]
