==pictures==No pictures of their postage stamps? They desired those best, such as Graven Imagery of the USA Presidents. (talk) 22:11, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


just like Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom

this current heading of the article is a little disrespectful.. Antares911 23:54, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I am taking Hawaiian History currently in my Middle School and the above is correct.- Anon.

It was requested that Kamehameha III be moved to either Kamehameha III of Hawai'i, Kamehameha III, King of Hawai'i or King Kamehameha III of Hawai'i. I among others oppose such moves. As can be seen above, the request received opposition and the poll went stale. Requests denied. Arrigo 13:00, 26 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Instead of having to place opinions on multiple pages, we should follow the example of the users over at the Japan manual of style pages and move all related discussions to one place. Thus, I'm requesting that we move all discussions about the naming conventions of Hawaiian monarchs to Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Hawaii/Manual of Style. 青い(Aoi) 06:21, 27 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Royal consorts and monarchs[edit]

Third wife[edit]

I removed the note "marriage not recognized by Missionaries". We are writing about a King of Hawaii and he certainly didn't need the recognition of foreign missionaries to his marriages! They were only foreigners he hosted, not his controllers! Val —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:06, 12 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kamehameha III's famous quote[edit]

Actually, "Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono" means "National independendence will be restored when the situation is corrected." Which it was. Tom129.93.17.214 00:40, 31 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not sure where you got that translation from, but I can deal with it. The part in the sentence "ua mau", gives the idea that what was started in the past is continuing, therefore the English word "restored" to me doesn't equate to "mau", but rather just to continue or to say that it has been continuing. What was continued? Ke ea, or sovereignty or in your definition, national independence. Mamoahina (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 03:47, 2 November 2008 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Unsourced material moved from main page[edit]

Through out his life Kauikeaouli was protected by the Kaahanui family. The Hawaiian man known as John William Nakoa Kaahanui was his personal body-guard and his genealogy shows that the lineage of Kaahanui have been protecting the Kamehameha's for a long time.

Thank you. -- (talk) 11:40, 31 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Infobox image[edit]

The portrait is based on a photograph of the king and stylistically more appropriate and is colored unlike a black and white photograph. Photographs are featured in the later life section when they photography first arrived in Hawaii during the late 1840s. The portrait also hangs prominently at Bishop Museum and is a more iconic image of the king. KAVEBEAR (talk) 00:14, 25 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
