The genealogy of
this family is given here because some members have put
forward a claim to the Hawaiian Royal succession. It is
impossible to reconcile these claims with any of the
rules of succession or selection, established by any of
the constitutions promulgated by the Kingdom of Hawaii
before 1895. They certainly do not conform to the laws of
the last constitution of 1887. This constitution, though
superseded, was never legally revoked.
It would seem that the claim rests primarily on the
possible attendance of Alii Theresa Owana
Kaohelelani La'anui Rives, as a pupil of the Royal School
in Honolulu. Established under the direction of Mr Amos
S. Cooke, an American missionary, to educate the children
of the Royal family and families connected to it, the
school operated for a brief period and closed ca. 1850.
Mere attendance at an institution seems insufficient to
establish any claim to the succession. Moreover, it does
not seem to conform to any known system of hereditary
inheritance or selection, either Hawaiian or foreign.
Contemporary documentation, similarly fails to
substantiate the claims to, or use of, regal titles for
this lady and any members of her family.
