[Sherri, 03/31/2012]

Also called Kamehameha the Great, a legendary figure who united the Kingdom of Hawaii (which means he conquered enough of the separately ruled islands). He is revered as the guy who, among other accomplishments, ended human sacrifice as a local custom. A bronze and gold leaf likeness is a popular tourist stop in Honolulu.
