Kingdom of Hawaii

The Kingdom of Hawaii was established in 1795 with the subjugation of the smaller independent chiefdoms of Oʻahu, Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi into one government. In 1810 the whole of the archipelago was finally unified when Kauaʻi and Niʻihau joined the kingdom willingly and without bloodshed or war. The Kingdom was overthrown in January 17, 1893 and the Republic of Hawaii was established, eventually becoming the U.S. state of Hawaii on August 21, 1959.
