Her three brothers include the late King George Tupou V and the current King of Tonga, Tupou VI, who ascended to the throne in 2012. Because in Tonga culture women are higher ranking than men, she is by far in history the highest ever ranking woman in Tonga, past,present and futuredoes not apply to HRH Princess Salote, as a King does not have a 'Fahu' nor can be outranked by anyone. Tonga was ruled by three (3) lines of Kings at the same time .Her grandmother Queen Salote Tupou lll a direct descendant of King Siaosi Tupou l and is from the Tu'i Kanokupolu line. Queen Salote married her consort Hon.Tungi Mailefihi, he was the descendant of the Tu'i Ha'atakalaua the second lines of King. King Taufa'ahau Tupou iv who was their son married her consort Queen Halaevalu Mata'aho (Queen Mother) a great grand daughter of the last king of the first lines of King (Laufilitonga). It has been widely known that the marriage between HRH Princess Salote Pilolevu and Lord Tuita, was a strategically planned as to strengthen HRH Pilolevu's status because Lord Tuita's bloodline was more 'blue' than that of HRH Pilolevu. The QM's bloodline had been 'diluted' along the way with her 'palangi' roots, ie her 'Blake' side.
