Kamehameha The Young Warrior

As Kamehameha reached manhood events unfolded which would further direct him towards his destiny of greatness. King Alapai died and was succeeded by the king's son Keaweaopala. The new ruler was not suited for the role.

His subjects neither respected nor were loyal to Keaweaopala and they rebelled against him. The rebellion first began in Ka'u, where High Chief Kalaniopuu led the opposing forces. Keaweaopala was killed at Kealakekua Bay following a two-day battle.

Kalaniopuu was proclaimed king of Ka'u and Kona. Kamehameha was introduced to battle during the brief war. At the side of Kalaniopuu he made use of the wisdom of warfare taught to him by Kekuhaupio. When the new king was established with his court in Kona, Kamehameha was named his aide, which is an esteemed position within the court. King Kahekili of Maui sent to the court at Kailua his younger half-brothers, twins, Kame'eiamoku and Kamanawa, with instructions that they stay by the side of Kamehameha, protecting and guiding him.

Could this confirm that King Kahekili believed that Kamehameha was indeed his son? It surely suggests so. However, Kalaniopuu had plans of his own to invade Maui and win the district of Hana. A year was spent preparing for the battle, building war canoes, weaponry and training the warriors.

King Kalaniopuu, accompanied by his son Keoua-of-the-Flaming-Cloak and Kamehameha set sail for Maui. They took hold of the Kauiki fort of Hana. Before long another event would occur, which would affect the islands as none other ever had. Related Internet Resources: http://aloha.
