Kamehameha I (ca.1758-1819) was the first Hawaiian chieftian to unite the Hawaiian islands into one royal kingdom. This he achieved in 1810 after many military campaigns. As King, he met Captain James Cook in 1779 at Kealakekua Bay, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where Cook had landed and was later killed by the Hawaiians.
