Americans bought lands to Hawaii and established large plantations. 1887, The American plantation owners convinced Hawaii King Kalakaua to motify their national constitution to allow only land owning residents the right to vote. In 1891 King Kalakaua then died. His sister Liliuokalani then became the Queen.

        Queen Liliuokalani was a Hawaiian nationalist. The queen was angered by the U.S. growing control over the islands economics and politics. She abolished the previous constitution.
