Princess Liliuokalani Next in Line for the Throne

This week in history — April 11, 1877 — Princess Liliuokalani became the heir apparent to the throne of Hawaii. On a Wednesday at 1 p.m., guns shot from Punchbowl could be heard, and and people of Hawaii heard the proclamation. After her older brother King Kalakaua died in 1891, the future Queen Liliuokalani would serve as Hawaii’s last monarch. Read more about it in “The Heir Apparent.”
