Alexander Liholiho and Lot Kamehameha travel abroad

Alexander Liholiho and Lot Kapuaiwa, grandsons of Kamehameha I through his daughter Elisabeta Kinau, later ruled Hawai'i as Kamehameha IV and V. While still teenagers, they traveled to the United States and Europe accompanied by their guardian Dr. Gerritt Judd. Alexander Liholiho celebrated his 16th birthday in Paris where he learned to fence and speak French. He and Lot met with French President Louis-Napoleon, with Prince Albert in London, and with President Zachary Taylor and Vice President Millard Fillmore in Washington, D.C. While traveling by train through the United States, the young princes contended with racial slurs and discrimination, treatment which forever prejudiced Alexander Liholiho especially against Americans.
