Robert William Kalanihiapo Wilcox (February 15, 1855-October 23, 1903), nicknamed the Iron Duke of Hawaiʻi, was a native Hawaiian revolutionary, soldier and delegate to the United States Congress for the Territory of Hawaiʻi. He was considered a menace to the both the government of the Kingdom of Hawaii under Kalakaua and the Republic of Hawaiʻi under Sanford Dole, for his participation in what are now known as the Wilcox rebellions.
The same year he left Congress, Wilcox died on October 23. He was buried at the Honolulu Catholic Cemetery. In 1993, a bronze statue of Wilcox was unveiled at Fort Street Mall. The statue now stands prominently in downtown Honolulu at Wilcox Park, also named in his honor.
