Description
Since the untimely death of the sacred Prince William Charlcs Lunalilo, last island monarch of the Kamehameha Dynasty, about 80 years ago, there have arisen among the Hawaiians a great number of controversies involving the royal and noble genealogies, and pedigrees. In other instances, stories have been created of the most fantastic nature to distort utterly the true personalities of the Hawaiian kings and princes. For countless centuries the great House of Keawe had ruled over the island Kingdom of Hawaii. In 1782 at the great Battle of Mokuohai, a prince of the junior line of the House of Keawe, Kamehameha the First, established his authority and government and enthroned his dynasty.

Excerpt
Throughout the entire history of Hawaii, there have been only three queens who ruled in their own sovereign right. These …ere first, the fabulously beautiful Kaikilani (Heaven?s Portion), second, the powerful and imperious Keakealani (The Blinding Light of Heaven), and third, Liliuokalani, the last queen of Hawaii. The second of these, the Queen Keakealani, became the mother of the great Prince Keawe. Keakealani was an unusual woman. At a time of masculine supremacy, she took the reins government into her own sure hands and exercised a rigid control over her realm. She led her own armies into battle and quickly quelled any attempt of the powerful chiefs of the great Hawaii districts to overthrow her.
