Hawaii is the only state that was once a monarchy (before it was overthrown and annexed by the U.S. in 1893), and the best place to get a sense of how Queen Lili’uokalani and the royal family lived is with a visit downtown to ‘Iolani Palace, designed by architect Thomas J. Baker in an Italianate-influenced style some have called “American Florentine.”
