But that was when the Constitution of the Kingdom, known as the Bayonet Constitution, robbed much of the power of sovereignty and put it into the hands of American and European businessmen.

Since Liliuokalani became Queen, efforts have continued to remove sovereigns from power and rule the kingdom.

Only two years after becoming a ruler, in 1893, with the help of the United States, the Queen was illegally defeated by a foreigner.

After that, Hawaii became a caretaker government.

In 1895, a revolutionary attempt by the Hawaiian royal family to return the Queen to power arrested Queen Liliuokalani, forcing her to abandon the throne due to possible bloodshed.

After being charged with “treason,” the Queen was convicted and sentenced to five years in prison for hard labor.
