Honor the legendary lives of Hawaii’s late royals at the Royal Mausoleum in Honolulu. The first to be laid to rest here was Prince Albert, the four-year-old son of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, and the king himself who died just 15 months after his young son. When the boy was laid in his tomb alongside his father in 1864, a grief-stricken Queen Emma slept within the mausoleum. In 1865, the remains of past monarchs of The Kingdom of Hawaii were transferred to the Mausoleum, and it became the official final resting place for all monarchs and their families afterward. Interestingly, it’s one of only three sites in Hawaii where the Hawaiian flag officially flies alone without the U.S. flag alongside. (The other two places are the Puʻukoholā Heiau National Historic Site and Iolani Palace.)
