Kralahome is the main antagonist of the 1999 Warner Bros. animated film, The King and I.

He is voiced by Ian Richardson.


Kralahome is an evil sorcerer whose main goal is to become king of Siam by overthrowing King Mongkut by sabotaging his reputation a good leader. He believes if harm is done to Anna Leonowens, Louis, Tuptim, and Prince Chulalongkorn then King Mongkut would be considered to be a horrible person and that he would be eliminated from the throne. He could then proceed take over the kingdom and rule it for himself.

Master Little does not feel appreciative of Kralahome as his henchman, hence calling him "stingy" by not sharing the wealth when he becomes king. Kralahome has the power to create illusions with the help of a magical gong that can see all as sort of like a crystal ball and mind powers.

Towards the climax of the film, Kralahome is foiled by Anna Leonowen's friend Edward for trying to kill King Mongkut, and his plans were uncovered. His punishment would be permanently working the elephant stables by cleaning their dung with Master Little as his boss.


  • Kralahome appears in the original Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and associated adaptations thereof, but not as a villain; at most, he is mildly antagonistic toward Anna due to cultural differences. Due to this and other changes made to the source material, the estates of Rodgers and Hammerstein refused to allow any more of their works to be animated.
