Princess Kaʻiulani of Hawaii the Monarchyʻs Last Hope


The haunting story of the Scottish-Hawaiian Princess Victoria Ka’iulani; the fragile beauty who, as heir-apparent, was groomed all her life to be the future Queen of Hawai’i. Despite the struggles of loyal Royalists who fought for their beleaguered throne, Ka’iulani’s birthright was swept away forever when the monarchy was overthrown in January 1893 and Hawai’i was annexed to the United States on August 12, 1898. The Princess died seven months later, at the age of twenty-three.
