Queen Liliuokalani and the Annexation of HawaiiQueen Liliuokalani was the last ruler of Hawaii before the U.S. annexation of the Hawaiian Islands. The annexation occurred in 1893, when American planters overthrew her government and resulted in President Harrison submitting a treaty of annexation of Hawaii to the Senate. Harrison's successor, President Cleveland withdrew the treaty as Hawaiians didn't favor it. The Hawaiian Islands were finally annexed in July 1898, and a formal apology for the annexation of Hawaii was passed by President Clinton and Congress in 1993.
