Also see . . .  Kamehameha I -- National Park Service. King Kamehameha was one of the most striking figures in Hawaiian history... Legends link his birth to storms and strange lights, activities thought by Hawaiians to herald the birth of a great chief. Because of prognostications at his birth and threats from warring clans, Kamehameha was taken away and hidden immediately after his birth.
