Hawaii in the 19th Century

At the beginning of the 19th century, Russian navigators explored Hawaii, in particular, Captain Yuri Lisyansky, a participant in the first Russian round-the-world trip (one of the islands of the archipelago was named after him). In 1808, an expedition organized by Alexander Baranov, who was in charge of the Russian-American Company at that time, visited Hawaii. This was a period of active development by the Russians of Alaska and California, so it is not surprising that interest was also shown in the strategically very conveniently located Hawaiian Islands. However, over the next few years, contacts between Russians and Hawaiians remained irregular and limited to the purchase of food and sandalwood.

In January 1815, the leader of the island of Kauai, Kaumualii, captured the Russian ship Bering, which had run aground in the harbor of Vaimea, with a load of furs. In order to return the property belonging to the Russian-American Company, Alexander Baranov sent an expedition led by Georg Schaeffer. Historians argue why Baranov chose Sheffer: he was a doctor, was considered a narrow-minded person and had no diplomatic experience. Perhaps the company’s management at that moment simply did not have a more suitable candidate at hand. Baranov instructed Schaeffer to seek a peaceful resolution of the conflict, to ask Kamehamea I for compensation for the captured cargo and, if successful, for the further development of trade. At the same time, Baranov handed over a letter to the Hawaiian king, in which he politely warned that in case of refusal to solve the problem that has arisen peacefully, force will be used. The Russian expedition was peacefully received by both Kamehamea I and Kaumualii. The latter had far-reaching plans for Schaeffer: he wanted to get rid of the power of the Hawaiian king with the help of the Russians. Kaumualii agreed to compensate for the losses, promised to give Russian merchants a monopoly on the sandalwood trade, and even swore allegiance to the Russian Empire on behalf of all Hawaii. Schaeffer, with the support of local residents, built three fortresses on the island of Kauai: Forts Elizabeth, Alexander and Barclay de Tolly, hoisting the flag of the Russian-American Company over them. Guided by Kaumualiya, Schaeffer sent messages of victory to Baranov and to St. Petersburg, he asked for military support to capture all of the Hawaiian Islands. Nevertheless, the plans of the doctor-adventurer were not supported by the officials of the Russian Empire. The confrontation between Kamehamea I, who was assisted by American traders, and Kaumualiya ended in the defeat of the latter and the expulsion of Schaeffer from Hawaii in June 1817. This ended the history of Russian expansion to Hawaii, which brought only huge losses to the Russian-American Company.
