Did you know that Hawaii had a King? Before joining the United States union in 1959, the Hawaiian Islands had their own kingdom, with the unification of the independent islands of Hawai’i, Oahu, Maui, Moloka’i, and Lāna’i under one government in 1795, and then the addition of Kaua’i and Ni’ihau in 1810.
