By William N. Armstrong
William Armstrong observed the King as a member of His Majesty's executive and Royal Commissioner for Immigration. His account of this notable circumnavigation, the 1st ever for a monarch, is instructed with humor and perception, even if no longer continuously with sympathy for the King's aspirations or ideals.
The e-book is a gem of Hawaiian literature. It offers us with insights into the character of King Kalakaua, and into the brain of Mr. Armstrong. we're given attention-grabbing glimpses of the courts of either jap and Western nations, together with the japanese Royal courtroom and that of Queen Victoria of England.
Mr. Armstrong occasionally perspectives his royal grasp with a jaundiced eye, yet, to the reader, King Kalakaua emerges unscathed. music author, bon vivant, capable baby-kisser, pupil, gentleman, and humanist, Kalakaua used to be dedicated to his Hawaiian topics and the to him. Nicknamed the Merry Monarch, he has, with the passing of time, emerged as a hugely major character who has been extra competently named the extraordinary Monarch.
