In the mythology of Tonga, ʻIlaheva Vaʻepopua (ʻIlaheva, living at Vaʻepopua) was a mortal woman, the daughter of Seketoʻa, who was a chief of Tongatapu, or perhaps a god from Niuatoputapu, or the daughter from a Niuē chief, depending on the source. All accounts, however, agree that she became the wife of Tangaloa ʻEitumātupuʻa and mother of ʻAhoʻeitu, the first divine king of the Tuʻi Tonga dynasty in Tonga, around 900 AD.
