Heir to the Hawaiian throne, Prince Albert Edward Kauikeaouli Kaleiopapa Kamehameha "Haku" was the only son of King Kamehameha IV & Queen Consort Emma. He was born on May 20, 1858 at 6:10 p.m. and immediately upon the delivery of the royal prince into the world, he was welcomed with a 21 gun fire salute, followed by  a huge celebration from the Hawaiian Nation.  

 

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.

Little Prince Albert was made an honorary member of Fire Engine Company Number Four in Honolulu and was given his own Company Four red uniform, as he wanted to be a fireman.

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