Will Kaiulani Rule Hawaii?Posted: June 29, 2014
After the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, Liliuokalani and Kaiulani traveled through the United States, campaigning for their cause to restore the Hawaiian monarchy. Rumors were flying about Kaiulani becoming the next ruler of Hawaii.
In 1895, Julian D. Hyne, editor of the Hawaiian, claimed that in eight months, the Hawaiian republic would be overthrown and Kaiulani would become queen. He said that people in Hawaii are “sick” of the government and that the Hawaiian republic has $995,000 more debt than when it started and cannot pay for present expenses.
