Kanealai

Kane?alai[1] (also known as Kane-a-La?e) was a Queen regnant of the Hawaiian island of Molokai, who lived in the 18th century. She ruled as Alii nui of Molokai.

She was a daughter of Luahiwa II (of the reigning family of Kauai)[2] and Ka-ho?oia-a-Pehu.[3]

Kane?alai planted a mountain apple tree.[4]

She married Keawekekahiali?iokamoku, the king of Hawai?i. They had four children.

After Keawekekahiali?iokamoku died, Kane?alai became a wife of Kekaulike, the king of Maui. With him she had one daughter, Luahiwa, who married her half-brother Kahekili II.

It is probably because of Kane?alai that Kamehameha-nui, the son of Kekaulike and Kekuiapoiwa I, was raised as a young boy at Waialua, Moloka?i, and because of her connection with Kekaulike that her son and grandsons and other chiefs of Moloka?i went to the help of Kamehameha-nui in his fight with Kalanipu?u.
