Princess Ka'iulani dies

Ka'iulani, daughter of Archibald Cleghorn and Princess Miriam Likelike, grew up during the reign of her uncle, King Kalakaua. She lived at her father's Waikiki estate, 'Ainahau, and left Hawai'i as a young woman to attend boarding school in England. Queen Lili'uokalani, having no children of her own, named Ka'iulani as heir apparent. After the overthrow of the monarchy, both Lili'uokalani and Ka'iulani went to Washington to persuade American leaders to restore the kingdom. Ka'iulani witnessed Hawaii's transformation into a U.S. Territory in 1898, but pledged herself to private charity work rather than pursuit of further political redress. In poor health during the last months of 1898, she died in 1899 at age 23.
