Princess of Tonga Fusipala (August 1926)


Tongan princess, the second of two daughters born to King George Tupou II and his second wife Queen ʻAnaseini Takipō. She was named after her grandmother ʻElisiva Fusipala Taukiʻonetuku and also her elder sister who died of convulsion shortly after her birth. Since her mother was unable to give birth to a male heir, Princess Fusipala elder half-sister from her father's first marriage would succeed their father as Queen Sālote Tupou III in 1918.

In 1918, her mother Queen Dowager Takipō died as a result of the infamous 1918 flu pandemic which killed eight percent of the population of Tonga. After her mother's death, Sālote assumed the guardianship of her half-sister Princess Fusipala. In 1920, she was sent abroad to be educated at the Anglican Diocesan School for Girls, Auckland and later continued her education at the Methodist Ladies' College, Melbourne. She became noted as an accomplished pianist at school.

While in Australia for a health trip, Fusipala died early in the morning of 21 April 1933 from tubercular peritonitis, at the Burwood Private Hospital, in Sydney. She was 20.
