The Hawaiian Monarchy
“The Last Hawaiian Queen”, Lydia Paki Kamekeha Lili’uokalani was on the throne during the United States’ Treaty for annexation.
She took the throne in 1891 upon the death of her brother, King David Kalakaua.
The Monarchy was already constitutional at that point, having a cabinet to the king consisting primarily of Americans.
The Queen attempted to restore power to the monarchy that had been lost because of the strong and abundant American-run Sugar-Cane industry.
