(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The Republic of Hawaii was annexed by the United States in 1898.
It was organized into Hawaii Territory in 1900, and admitted as a state in 1959.
The Republic had only one president, Sanford B. Dole, who later was the first territorial governor.
Between 1893 and 1894, Hawaii was under the Provisional Government of Hawaii, with no formal leader.

Before 1893, Hawaii was a monarchy; see
