    "...An overlooked heroine of Scottish heritage: Victoria Ka'iulani Cleghorn, Crown Princess of the Kingdom of Hawai'i, daughter of Princess Miriam Likelike (sister of Queen Lili'iuokalani) and Edinburgh Scot Archibald Cleghorn. Learn the intriguing transoceanic tale of the exquisite and gifted "Hope of Hawai'i". Educated in Britain, friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, Ka'iulani would lose her Royal birthright when American interests overthrew the Hawaiian Monarchy in 1893; after four years semi-stranded in Europe (with one trip to America to plead her Nation's cause), the Princess returned to her homeland, to comfort her people and show solidarity with her Aunt the deposed Queen. Despite her beauty, talent and courage, sorrow and ill health laid Ka'iulani to untimely rest at age 23 in early1899, shortly after her country's annexation to the United States."

    Princess Kaiulani was the daughter of Archibald Scott Cleghorn, a Scotsman.

    Princess Ruth Keelikolani

    At birth, Kaiulani was given an estate in Waikiki by Princess Ruth Keelikolani, the last surviving member of the Kamehamehas. Called Ainahau, the estate was near the ocean and surrounded by trees and flowers. Peacocks strutted amongst the ponds and footpaths. As a child, Kaiulani spent many hours riding her white pony.
    When she was 13, the princess met poet Robert Louis Stevenson, who had moved into the residence next door. The two became fast friends, with the famed writer mesmerizing Kaiulani with intriguing tales as they sat in the garden.
    Shortly thereafter, Kaiulani was sent away to England to further her education. During her absence, the Hawaii’s monarchy fell on troubled times, including the unexpected death of King Kalakaua in 1891. His sister, Liliuokalani, ascended the throne as Hawaii’s queen. Among her first acts was naming Kaiulani as her heir apparent.
    Kaiulani wanted to return home, but the queen would not permit it. So the princess bided her time in England, attending royal balls, theatrical events and other social functions. Tall, slim and beautiful, Kaiulani captured the hearts of all who met her.
    Alas, by the time the princess returned to the Islands in 1897, her homeland was already a much different place. Liliuokalani had been forced to abdicate her throne four years earlier, and the monarchy was no more. Instead, Hawaii was about to be named a republic by U.S. President William McKinley.
    “I must have been born under an unlucky star,” said Kaiulani, “as I seem to have my life planned for me in such a way that I cannot alter it.” Months later, while horseback riding on the Big Island, she was caught in a rainstorm and fell ill. The cold lingered for months. Finally, on March 6, 1899,

    A sad story made even more tragic by this movie that depicts her life. It doesn't even show that the Princess or her family are Black.

    By 1890, the King's health began to fail. Under the advice of his physician, he traveled to San Francisco. His health continued to worsen, and he died on January 20, 1891 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. His final words were, "Tell my people I tried." Shortly before his death his voice was recorded on a phonograph cylinder, which is now in the Bernice P. Bishop Museum.
