Born of ali'i (royalty) lineage, Ka'ahumanu married Kamehameha I as a young girl and became his favorite wife. When he died in 1819, she was named Kuhina Nui (Prime Minister) alongside young King Liholiho Kamehameha II. A powerful influence, she persuaded him to officially break the sacred law, 'ai kapu, by eating with her in public. Later she embraced Protestant Christianity and helped promote the faith.
