From Wikipedia:

Keawemauhili (1710–1790) was an important member of the Hawaiian nobility at the time of the founding of the Kingdom of Hawaii.



He was a son of Kalaninuiamamao and his half-sister Kekaulike-i-Kawekiuonalani.

He first married Ululani, the Aliʻi Nui of Hilo, and then Kekikipaʻa, the daughter of Kameʻeiamoku and former wife of Kamehameha I. With his first wife he had sons Keaweokahikiona and Elelule Laʻakeaelelulu, and with his second wife, famous daughter Kapiʻolani (c. 1791) and son Koakanu.
