AHOEITU

Tonga Ruler God

Reconstituted King

Son of Eitumatupua and Ilaheva.

He was deposited on Earth along with his mother, but missed his old dad and so climbed the tree to Heaven for a little reunion. But his jealous half-brothers chucked him in the pot and ate him for dinner.

He was only restored to life after dad made them vomit. By way of reparation, he was made King of Tonga.
