Princess Kaiulani was a strikingly beautiful crown princess of Hawaii at the time American business interests illegally overthrew the native hawaiian government and took possession of the islands for themselves. She was eighteen at the time and studying in England. Kaiulani traveled to the United States to campaign for her people. Imperialists denounced Kaiulani as a "half-breed," daughter of a savage (Princess Miriam Likelike) and a Scottish businessman (Archibald Cleghorn). However, Kaiulani was a persuasive young woman and she convinced President Grover Cleveland to oppose American annexation of Hawaii. His successor, William McKinley had no qualms about stealing the islands and annexation quickly followed his inauguration.
