Kekoolani Genealogy of the Descendants of the Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii


Kuali'i (Kuikealaikeuo'o-okalani 'Unu-i-akea Kualii) (Mo'i, Ruler of O'ahu) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.(Mo'i, married 10, 11, 12 Kalanikahimakaialii (Kalanikahemakoalii, Kalanikauhialiiokamoku) (Ninaupi'o Chiefess).

Other marriages:
Kukuimakalani,

Hero-king of O'ahu. Of the Nana-ulu line of Kings of O'ahu and Kauai descending from Maweke of O'ahu.

In "Genealogy of the Robinson family, and ancient legends and chants of Hawaii", al'ii historian Solomon L.K. Peleioholani gives his full name as "Kualiilanipipililanioakaiakunuiakealuanuuokuiialiiikahalau".

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):
Look at Kaulahea (k). King of Maui. Kaulahea (k) niaupio married Kalaniomaiheuila (w), his own sister; and born was Kalanikahimakaialii (w), wife of Kualii (k) of Oahu. Kalanikahimakaialii (w) married Kualii (k) of Oahu and had Kapiioho (k) Peleioholani I (k) Kukuiaimakalani (w). Look at this the mother of these Oahu chiefs is a Mauian and part Kauai and Oahu; also Kualii is King of Oahu.

-----------------------------------------------------------

In the list which appears in the Robinson genealogy, S.L.K. Peleioholani seems to indicate that Lonokahikini is the full sister of Peleioholani, but this might not be the case. No other genealogies seem to explain the lineage of Lonokahikini.

SLK Pelioholani gives the children of Kualii in the following:
(1) ANCESTRY OF JOHN LIWAI: Peleioholani, Kapiohookalani, Kukuimakalani
(2) ROBINSON GENEALOGY: Lonokahikini

We haven't found any works mentioning Kaionuilanilalahai, but she is well documented as a child of Kualii in other histories.

"No legends that I have seen state how it happened, but they all concur in representing Kualii of Oahu as the next Kualii. chief over the windward side of Kauai after the death of Kawelo-a-Maihunalii. The historical probability is that
Kualii reclaimed the succession to that portion of the island, as well as the sovereignty, in the name of his grandmother, Kawelolauhuki, one of the daughters of Kawelomahamahaia. The legends of Ifi~aliin ever speak of Kauai as a conquered country, and the presumption is that he came into possession by inheritance, as understood in those days."

Kapiiohookalani (Kapiioho, Ka-pi'i-oho-o-ka-lani, Kapiioho-o-Kualii, Kapi'ohookalani), (

She is the "pio" daughter of the King of Maui (Kaulahea II) and his royal full-blooded sister Kalaniomaiheulia, and therefore she is a sacred person (ninaupio) of higher rank even than her own parents in the ancient ranks of chiefs. The name "Kalaniomaiheuila" is also one of our great great grandfather's names (Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani). It comes from this female ancestor.

She became the mother of the O'ahu royal family, tieing those chiefs to the Maui royal family through her marriage to Kualii, Ruler of Oahu.
