Kamehameha I – First King of Hawaii
Kamehameha was born into a family of great chiefs around 1758, when the Hawaiian Islands were ruled by several powerful chiefs. Using firearms and cannons purchased from European traders, Kamehameha began a struggle to unify the islands into a kingdom in 1782. By 1795, he had conquered all of the main islands except Kauai and Niihau. In 1810, Kaumualii, the ruler of Kauai and Niihau, peacefully accepted Kamehameha as king.
 
Kamehameha I was an able ruler. He used chiefs as effective local rulers and preserved many of his people’s customs and religion. However, he did institute changes when necessary. Under Kamehameha I’s rule, trade increased greatly. A statue of Kamehameha I represents Hawaii in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
