King Kalakaua was the last reigning king of the Kingdom of Hawai'i. He reigned from February 1874 to his death on 20 January 1981. He was succeeded by Queen Lili'uokalani.

Lili'uokalani (1838-1917) was the last queen of Hawaii. She had hoped the United States, like Great Britain earlier in Hawaiian history, would restore Hawaii's sovereignty to the rightful holder.
