THE HISTORY OF QUEEN KA'AHUMANU
Queen Ka’ahumanu was born in Hana, Maui in March of 1768. Her father, Ke’eaumoku, was a Chief and Advisor to King Kamehameha I. Her mother, Nāmāhana, of the Kekaulike family, had been the wife of the King of Maui.
At age thirteen, Ka’ahumanu married King Kamehameha. He held her wisdom and keen political insight in high regard, and she soon became his most trusted advisor.
King Kamehameha granted his beloved Queen the important position of kuhinanui, or Prime Minister. When Liholiho assumed power after Kamehameha’s death in 1819, Queen Ka’ahumanu ruled as his equal, securing her place in history as Hawai’i’s first female monarch.
The Queen initiated many groundbreaking changes to traditional Hawaiian society. She dissolved the ancient laws, known as kapu, and in so doing eliminated a rigid class system that prohibited women from participating in many activities and placed heavy burdens of taxation and restrictions on the common people.
She dedicated herself to spreading the word of God and promoted learning and education through that word to both chiefs and commoners alike.
Queen Ka’ahumanu died at age 64 on June 5, 1832. Although she ruled for only thirteen years, her impact on the Hawaiian culture will last an eternity.
