Meet the Author

"LILIUOKALANI (1838 – 1917), born Lydia Liliu Loloku Walania Wewehi Kamakaeha, was the last monarch and only queen regnant of the Kingdom of Hawaii. She was also known as Lydia Kamakaeha Paki, with the chosen royal name of Liliuokalani, and her married name was Lydia K. Dominis.
On 14 January 1893, a group composed of Americans and Europeans formed a Committee of Safety seeking to overthrow the Hawaiian Kingdom, depose the Queen, and seek annexation to the United States. As the coup d'état was unfolding on 17 January the Committee of Safety expressed concern for the safety and property of American citizens. In response, United States Government Minister John L. Stevens summoned a company of U.S. Marines from the USS Boston and two companies of U.S. Navy sailors to take up positions at the U.S. Legation, Consulate, and Arion Hall. On the afternoon of 16 January 1893, 162 sailors and Marines aboard the USS Boston in Honolulu Harbor came ashore under orders of neutrality. Historian William Russ has noted that the presence of these troops, ostensibly to enforce neutrality and prevent violence, effectively made it impossible for the monarchy to protect itself.[10]

The Queen was deposed on 17 January 1893 and temporarily relinquished her throne to "the superior military forces of the United States"." -- Wikipeda
