Queen Lydia Liliuokalani was the last ruler of the Kingdom of Hawai'i. In 1893 a revolution* removed her from the throne. Five years later, Hawai'i became a territory of the United States.

*"revolution" here, means the American business leaders just decided to take over for no good reason other than their own benefit
