Ka‘iulani Crown Princess of the Hawai‘i, born Victoria Ka‘iulani Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kawēkiu i Lunalilo Cleghorn.

Princess Ka‘iulani in San Francisco, circa 1897. Wiktoria Kawēkiu Lunalilo Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kaiʻulani Cleghorn (ur. 16 października 1875 w Honolulu, zm. 6 marca 1899) – następczyni tronu Hawajów, rzeczniczka niepodległości Hawajów.

Princess Kaiulani - it is clear from her portrait that this was a time when Hawaiian royalty idolized the Brittish royal family

    I've never heard that they did. She simply looks like a properly-dressed woman of the period to me.

    They didn't. During the time this image was taken, they were embroiled in a very ugly battle to continue reigning as an independent entity, while Britian's ever encroaching power attempted to suffocate it.

  • Sparrow

    Kaʻiulani was born to a Hawaiian mother and a Scottish financier father; as second in line to throne (following an elderly and childless aunt), it was imparted on her that a proper education in England would better facilitate her ability to reign under their presence. She dressed like an Englander during that time, bc she lived in Northamptonshire.

    Later, when she traveled around the US speaking, to further the plight of her people, and to gain support for independent rule, she dressed as a westerner to help dissipate the common misconception that she, and her people, were "savages" and ill-equipped to handle their own politics. The Hawaiian people did not idolize the monarchy of England- even after they lost their fight and were ruled by the British, Hawaiians still made patronage to their former queen.

Ka‘iulani Crown Princess of the Hawai‘i, born Victoria Ka‘iulani Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kawēkiu i Lunalilo Cleghorn.

The exquisite, beautiful, tragic Princess Kaiulani of Hawaii who died at 23. What a combination of beauty, intelligence, and sensitivity.

Forth from her land to mine she goes, The island maid, the island rose, Light of heart and bright of face: The daughter of a double race. Her islands here in southern sun Shall mourn their Ka’iulani gone, And I, in her dear banyan shade, Look vainly for my little maid. But our Scots islands far away Shall glitter with unwanted day, And cast for once their tempest by To smile in Ka‘iulani's eye.
