 Heir to the Hawaiian throne, Prince Albert Edward Kauikeaouli Kaleiopapa Kamehameha "Haku" was the only son of HM King Kamehameha IV & HM Queen Emma. He was born on May 20, 1858 and on his day of royal birth he was welcomed with a huge celebration from the Hawaiian Nation.  


At his christening, his godmother was Queen Victoria II of England. His sponsors were Edward Albert, Prince of Wales and Prince Lot Kamehameha, his father's brother for which he received his names of Edward Albert and Kamehameha.


The young Prince Albert died at the age of four on August 27, 1862, due to "brain fever" an unfortunate death that left his royal parents and the entire Hawaiian nation in grief.
