Kapau-a-Nuʻakea was a Chiefess of Moloka?i. She ruled as a Queen regnant of the island of Molokai.
According to the myth, her family descends from Nanaulu, 14th generation descendant of the god W?kea.
She was the only known child of Chief Ke?olo?ewa-a-Kamauaua and Chiefess Nuʻakea. Through her father, she was the granddaughter of Kamau?a?ua, the first known sovereign lord of Molokaʻi.
Through her mother, she was the great-granddaughter of Maweke and cousin to Elepuʻukahonua, King of Oahu; Ewaulialaʻakona, King of ʻEwa; Mualani, Queen of Koʻolau; and Haulanuiaiakea, King of Kauai.
No special legend attaches to Kapau-a-Nuʻakea, nor to her husband Lanileo. Her daughter Kamauliwahine succeeded her as a queen.
