Helen Lydia Kamakaʻeha Liliʻuokalani Kawānanakoa (1905–1969), was a member of the House of Kawānanakoa and the second daughter of Prince David Kawānanakoa and Princess Abigail Campbell Kawānanakoa. She was known by many in the Hawaiian community as Princess Liliuokalani although she never officially held such a title.
Born July 22, 1905, Liliʻuokalani Kawānanakoa was named after Queen Liliʻuokalani. She attended a convent school in San Francisco. During her youth, she was known as the "flapper" princess and sported the then-fashionable bobbed hair.
Liliʻuokalani married five times: first to Dr. William Jeremiah Ellerbrock on January 17, 1925 at Honolulu. Her second marriage was to Charles James Brenham at Niu, August 11, 1928. Her third husband was Clark Lee, and her fourth husband was Charles E. Morris. She had one daughter from her first marriage: Abigail Kinoiki Kekaulike Kawānanakoa (born 1926). She was the founder of the Kona Hawaiian Civic Club in 1952 and was the founder and First President of Friends of ʻIolani Palace 1966-1969.
She died of cancer at her home in Waialae, Honolulu, on May 19, 1969. At her request, her funeral was a private ceremony with none of the pomp or displays of former Hawaiian royal funerals. She is buried at Nuʻuanu Memorial Park.
