John Owen Dominis
Birth: Mar. 10, 1832
Death: Aug. 27, 1891

Prince Consort of Hawaii. Royal Governor of Oahu and Maui, general and commander of the Hawaiian Army. Born in Schenectady, New York, he moved with his parents to Honolulu in 1836, was educated in Hawaiian schools, and resided in Washington Place, a mansion commissioned by King Kamehameha III. During the California gold rush, he spent a year working as a clerk in San Francisco, then returned to Honolulu. On September 16, 1862, he married Lydia Kamaka'eha (Paki). He served as secretary to Kings Kamehameha IV and V, and was appointed royal governor of Oahu and Maui by King Kamehameha V. His wife's ascension to the throne as Queen Lili'uokalani in January 1891 gave him the designation of Prince Consort of Hawaii until his untimely death in Honolulu. (bio by: Susan VS)
