Kahaimoelea

Kahaimoelea was a Hawaiian chief, who ruled as the Aliʻi Nui of Hawaiʻi from 1285 to 1315. He was the sovereign king or chief of the island of Hawaiʻi. He is sometimes referred as Kahai IV or Kahiamoeleaikaʻaikupou.

The residence of Kahaimoelea was in Waipio Valley.

Waipio Valley was first occupied as a royal residence by Kahaimoelea.[1]

Kahaimoelea was a son of Chief Kalapana of Hawaiʻi by his wife, Lady Malamaʻihanaʻae. He followed his father as the sovereign of Hawaiʻi and fathered Kalaunuiohua by his half-sister Kapoʻakaʻuluhailaʻa (Kapo-a-Kauluhailea).
