Keaweaweʻulaokalani II (1842–1842) was the second son of Kamehameha III and his queen consort Kalama Hakaleleponi-i-Kapakuhaili. The baby boy was the namesake of his father and his brother.

Initially given in hānai to Kalākua Kaheiheimālie, he was instead adopted or hānai by his grand aunt, Kekāuluohi and her husband Kanaʻina when the old governess of Maui died not three days after his birth. The King promised that he would be sent to the Chiefs' Children's School once he was weaned and could walk. He soon developed a fever and died, at the age of only 31 days. Dr. Baldwin of Lahaina was convinced that the child was killed by traditional medicinal treatment.
