Chapter 2 covers ʻĪʻī’s service to Kamehameha III from 1824 to 1839, and closes with the conclusion of the Laplace affair in which ʻĪʻī played a special role, and marked the beginning of his career as a statesman. ʻĪʻī’s life during Kauikeaouli’s (Kamehameha III) reign, which lasted nearly three decades, was marked by many critical transitions and events. As a trusted advisor and a statesman, ʻĪʻī played a role in virtually all of them. Because the mōʻī (king) increasingly relied on ʻĪʻī’s advice, he placed him in important roles that elevated ʻĪʻī to prominence as a statesman—a role that complemented, but was in certain ways distinct from that of kahu aliʻi. Juggling a great number of duties, ʻĪʻī was a key figure in nearly every public arena, constantly traveling here and there to fulfill his various kuleana.
