Kamehameha the Great

The magical properties associated with the bones of Hawaiian kings were valuable to the ancient Hawaiians, and were even seen potentially dangerous. Great rites and elaborate ceremonies were performed to ensure the safe keeping of the ancestors.

In the year 1810, the islands of Hawaii were finally unified under one ruling dynasty. The founder of the newly established Kingdom of Hawaii was the warrior chief of Hawai’i Island (the largest of the Hawaiian Islands), Kamehameha I, known also as Kamehameha the Great.

Nine years after his unification of the Hawaiian Islands, Kamehameha I died, and was succeeded by his son, Kamehameha II, who ruled jointly with Ka’ahumanu (the favourite wife of Kamehameha I) as regent.  

Ka’ahumanu, widow of Kamehameha I with Charles Kana’ina. Ka’ahumanu was said to be one of the most influential leaders in Hawaii's history.
