Of high lineage she was a logical match for the highest born ali'i (royalty) of her generation. Courted by many, she was betrothed to her cousin King Kamehameha V. In 1848 Kamehameha V chose Pauahi as his successor to become queen. She declined the offer and chose to marry Charles Reed Bishop. Her inheritance amounted to one ninth of Hawaii's lands. After her death in 1884, Pauahi left her vast estate to benefit the Hawaiian people through the founding of Kamehameha Schools.
