|King Kamehameha IV|
Happy Birthday! King Kamehameha IV was born on February 9, 1834. His name at birth was Alexander Liholiho.
His birthday is not observed as a state holiday, but is always celebrated by Hawaii residents every February 9.
On January 16, 2012 I did a blog about Queen Emma. She was the wife of Kamehameha IV.
This king had a short life, as he died when he was only 29 years of age after suffering for many years from asthma and nerve disorders. He and Emma had one child, Albert, who died at age four.
King Kamehameha IV always worried about the American influence in Hawaii. He was correct in his beliefs, because eventually the influence became so prevalent that the nation was added to the United States.
