Yesterday, December 31, was the birthday of the Alii, Queen Kapiolani, the royal daughter of Kuhio (m) and Kinoiki (f), and this made her forty-first year, for she was born on this day in the year 1834. Yesterday at 12 noon, she saw in Iolani Palace all those who came to see her and to give her joy on this proud day of a person’s life, and the cannons were shot off in salute for her birthday. Just as with the happiness and the congratulations of those who went to see her, so too are we who are outside, with prayers for blessings from the heavens that her life may be extended until extreme old age.
Here is the genealogy of birth of Queen Kapiolani:
Keawe dwelt with Lonomaikanaka; Kauhiokeka (f) dwelt with Keawe (m); Kekaulike (f) dwelt with Kepoomahoe (m); Kalanikauleleiaiwi 3 [?] (f) dwelt with Kanekoa (m); Pomaikaulani (f) dwelt with Elelule (m); Kuhio (m) dwelt with Kinoiki (f); born was Kapiolani (f), Kapooloku (f), and Kekaulike (f).
Long live the Queen, Kapiolani.
