The true story of a Hawaiian princess' attempts to maintain the independence of the island against the threat of American colonization.
Ka'iulani's given first name, Victoria, was a tribute to the Queen of Great Britain. In July 1843, Queen Victoria had helped to restore Hawaii's sovereignty and independence during the reign of King Kamehameha III. The queen's given names were Alexandrina Victoria, but she chose not to use her given first name. Similarly, Princess Ka'iulani chose not to use her given first name.
There is no Victoria. There never was!
In one shot, a chameleon walks across the screen. Chameleons are not native to Hawaii; they were first introduced in 1972.
