Back in the 16th century Hawaii was visited by Spanish navigators, but they were officially discovered by the expedition of the English captain James Cook, who named them the Sandwich Islands (1778). Europeans found several state formations in Hawaii, which at the beginning of the 19th century. merged into one kingdom.
