Queen Kapiolani of Hawaii was born on December 31, 1895 and her full name was Esther Julia Kapiolani (or is it Kaiolani?) Napelakapuokakae. She was the granddaughter of Kaumualii, the last king of Kauai and she ws the step daughter of Queen Kaahumanu.

She married High Chief David Kalakaua in 1863, before he became King of Hawaii.

Queen Kapiolani was known for her good works and high morals. She tried to make a better life for the Hawaiian people and, in fact, most of the time she chose to speak Hawaiian rather then English.

She founded the Kapiolani Maternity Hospital for native Hawaiian mothers. Today it is called the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children.

King Kalakaua named Waikiki's Kapiolani Park after his wife, Queen Kapiolani.

Queen Kapiolani died in 1899.
