Articles and information about Queen Emma Kaleleonalani.

Queen Emma Kaleleonalani
Born: January 2, 1836 (born Emma Rooke)
Died: April 25, 1885
Co-Founder of the Queen's Medical Center
Wife of King Kamehameha IV
- King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma

Queen Emma's father was George Naea. Her mother, Fanny Kekelaokalani Young, was the daughter of Kamehameha I's niece Ka'oana'eha and the king's British counselor John Young. She was adopted by her aunt and uncle Grace and Thomas Rooke because they had no children of their own.

She spoke Hawaiian and English and was an accomplished musician and horseback rider.

She helped to establish a hospital to combat the diseases that were devastating native Hawaiians. It was named Queen's Hospital.

She had one son, Prince Albert, who was the last child to be born to a Hawaiian Monarch. In 1862 he died of a brain fever at age 4. King Kamehameha IV died a year later at the age of 29.

After King Lunalilo died, the Hawaiian legislature considered appointing Dowager Queen Emma as the new ruler of Hawaii, but they ended up selected David Kalakaua instead.
