William Pitt Leleiohoku
William Pitt Leleiohoku, formally William Pitt Leleiohoku Kalahoolewa (1854-1877), was a prince of the Kingdom of Hawai'i and member of the reigning House of Kalakaua. He was the youngest brother of King David Kalakaua, Queen Lili'uokalani and Princess Miriam K. Likelike. An accomplished musician, he founded several royal choral societies that survive today including the Kawaiha'o Singing Club. He is most famous for composing the Hawaiian war chant, used by the Hawaiian sovereignty movement today. Unfortunately at the age of 23, Prince Leleiohoku died of rheumatic fever.
