Queen Kapi'olani's Story

Kapi'olani Napelakapuokaka'e was born into the chiefly lineage of Kaua'i, in Hilo on December 31st, 1834.  Her parents were High Chiefess Kinoiki and High Chief Kūhiō. 

Kapi'olani assumed the role of Queen when her second husband, David Kalākaua won the election of 1874 after the death of King Lunalilo.  Always the gracious hostess, she was a woman full of humility and exuded a regal calm.  In addition to hosting grand receptions for visiting dignitaries, Queen Kapi'olani pursued her passion of working to improve the health and wellness of her people, co-founding the Kapi’olani Maternity Home in 1890, which lives on today as the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children.

Queen Kapi'olani was also an accomplished musician and composer.  One of her most famous mele (or songs) was Ka Ipo Lei Manu (My Cherished Sweetheart), a love song for King Kalākaua.  She was very accustomed to the etiquette and dance styles of Europe, yet, she never forgot who she was or where she came from.  Queen Kapi'olani preferred to speak in her native tongue throughout her life in lieu of the more popular English.  Even on her 1887 trip to Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebration in London, Queen Kapi'olani required Colonel Iaukea or her sister-in-law, Princess Lili'uokalani,  to translate for her.  During her trip to London, she debuted her famous blue peacock accented dress, and was treated as an equal to Queen Victoria, Europe's most powerful monarch at the time.  You can view a painting of Queen Kapi'olani in her peacock dress in the lobby of our hotel.

Queen Kapi'olani's motto in life was, "Kūlia i ka nu'u," which means Strive to reach the highest.
