maybe


I thot maybe i could be Queen Liliuokalani for haloween. Here is a little bit about her.
Name at birth: Lydia Paki Kamekeha Liliuokalani
Queen Liliuokalani was the Queen of the Hawaiian Islands from 1891 until 1893, when she was deposed by those who sought annexation to the United States. Born into Hawaii's royal family, Liliuokalani spoke fluent English and was well-educated. In 1887 she took a tour of England and attended Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, then met with President Grover Cleveland in Washington, D. C. Liliuokalani ascended to the throne upon the death of her brother, King Kalakaua, and set to work on establishing a new constitution that would strengthen native Hawaiian claims and weaken foreign commercial interests. In spite of support from President Cleveland, Liliuokalani lost her battle for control and was deposed by force. The monarchy was replaced by the Republic of Hawaii in 1894 and annexed to the U.S. in 1898. Liliuokalani wrote more than 150 songs, including the famous "Aloha Oe."
