Hawaii: The Queens
When Prince Iolani learned that his father, the great King Kamehameha had died, he wanted to sail away from his responsibilities. He did not want to be King. He did not want to think about war and law and strategy and trade. He just wanted to go sailing and enjoy his life, like he had been doing for the past 22 years. Lucky for him, two of his father’s queens, his mother and his teacher, offer to help him lead the newly formed Kingdom of Hawaii. However, they need him to do something first: destroy the Kapu — the age-old code of behavior that severely restricted the rights of women. Iolani does not know what to do, so he goes sailing to help him make a decision that would change the Kingdom forever.
