Albert Kamehameha


Royalty of the Kingdom of Hawaii. He was the only son of Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, who during his short life was the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. He was the godson of Queen Victoria.

Four days after his birth he was created Crown prince and heir apparent to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, and was styled "His Royal Highness the Prince of Hawaii" by the Privy Council. Adored by the native Hawaiian public, he was affectionately known as Ka Haku O Hawaiʻi ("the Lord of Hawaiʻi").

In August 1862, the usually serene prince became restless, suffering from what newspapers of the time reported as "brain fever," now known as meningitis. As the prince's condition declined, his parents made a personal request to Queen Victoria to send a bishop from the Anglican Church to baptize the prince. They also requested Queen Victoria to be his godmother. Queen Victoria consented to both requests, and he was baptized on August 23.

The Prince most likely died from a case of appendicitis on August 27, 1862, at the palace in Honolulu, four days after his baptism.
