Hawaii Modern History
After the death of Kamehameha I in 1819, his son Liolio took the throne of Hawaii, taking the name Kamehameah II. Together with him (and since 1825 – together with his successor Kamehameha III), the islands were ruled as “Queen Regent” by Kaaumanu, the most influential of the wives of the late founding monarch. In 1824, Kaaumanu, under the influence of American Protestant missionaries, encouraged her subjects to accept Christianity, and she herself was baptized in 1825. At the initiative of Kaauman, the first code of laws in Hawaii based on “Western”, Christian ethics and values was created. In 1826, Kamehameha III and Kaaumanu signed an agreement with the United States of America, according to which, in particular, American ships could freely enter Hawaiian harbors and trade with local residents.
By the end of the twenties of the XIX century, Protestant preachers were able to convince Kaauman to declare Catholicism illegal and expel Catholic priests (French by nationality) from the islands. This caused very serious discontent in France, which in 1839 sent a warship to Hawaii under the leadership of Captain Cyril Laplace, whose task was once and for all to explain to the islanders that it was not worth incurring the wrath of the European powers. Laplace coped with the task, the result of his expedition was the payment of monetary compensation to France for the expulsion of Catholics and the adoption of a law on religious tolerance. Kamehameha III even donated land to the Catholics to build a church.
In 1843, the British consul in Hawaii, Richard Charlton, who to some extent pursued his personal mercenary interests, turned to the captain of the warship Carysfortto George Polet with a complaint about the oppression of the British in the islands. On February 11, 1843, Polet arrived in Honolulu and asked for an audience with King Kamehameha III. The monarch at that moment was on another island and invited the captain to resolve his issues with the royal adviser Gerrit Judd (an American by birth). This proposal greatly outraged Polet, who considered Judd an impostor and a usurper. The British threatened to use force, and on February 25, Kamehameha III was forced to transfer power over the Hawaiian Islands to George Flight, still hoping to solve the problem through diplomacy. Envoys were sent from Hawaii to Great Britain, France, and the United States of America asking for support for the independence of the kingdom. In July, information about the events in Hawaii reached the commander of George Polet – Admiral Richard Thomas. On July 31, he arrived on the islands and announced the end of the occupation and the recognition of Kamehameha III as the legitimate and full ruler. It was on this day that the king of Hawaii delivered a speech to his subjects, the phrase from which “The life of the country is immortalized in virtue” later became the motto of the state of Hawaii.
