Emerging from her childhood, and inspired by her blossoming romance, Kaiulani realized she had to bring an end to the injustices suffered by her people and set to sail for America, to meet President Grover Cleveland, to prove that she and her people were not the “barbarians” portrayed by the American press.
Princess Kaiulani combines the profound natural beauty of Hawaii with the sweeping romance of a classic Merchant Ivory epic.

The Monarchy’s Last Hope
“I must have been born under an unlucky star,
as I seem to have my life planned out for me
in such a way that I cannot alter it…”…Princess Kaiulani,
