William Charles Lunalilo was the kingdom's sixthmonarch and proved to be very popular from the beginning of his reign. King Kamehameha V hadpreceded Lunalilo and had died without naming a successor. Therefore Lunalilo was appointed by the Legislature, but to affirm that he was the people's choice, the newly appointed king called for a general election and was voted to the throne by his loving public. His investiture was held here at Kawaiaha?o. He was destined to rule only a little over one year, he died February 3, 1874 at the age of 39.

The king's last wish was to be lain to rest nearhis people, and that is why his tomb stands hereat the entrance to Kawaiaha?o Church, rather than at the Royal Mausoleum.
