Kamehameha V (1830)

After Kamehameha V succeeded his brother as king of Hawaii in 1863, he tried to restore the old tribal ways. He proclaimed a new constitution that restored power to the monarch, weakened the legislature, and restricted suffrage. He even refused to allow the sale of alcohol. Under his reign, the influence of American missionaries waned rapidly. On his 42nd birthday, he died without an heir, bringing the Kamehameha dynasty to an end.

Mark Twain arrived in Honolulu on March 18, 1866, and remained in the Islands for four months. In describing King Kamehameha V, Twain wrote "There was no royal nonsense about him...he dressed plainly, poked about Honolulu, night or day on his old horse, unattended; he was popular, greatly respected, and even beloved." Mark Twain was a Freemason and visited Hawaiian Lodge No. 21 F.& A.M. during his sojourn in the Islands.
