Kāwananakoa was a member of the royal house of Kāwananakoa, which held close ties to the island nation’s last two reigning monarchs, King Kalākaua and Queen Liliu’okulani. While she held no formal title she was a living reminder of the monarchy and a symbol of Hawaiian national identity.

She was also one of Hawaii’s largest landowners, reported the Associated Press.

Born on April 23, 1926, as the only daughter and child of Princess Lydia Kamaka’eha Liliu’okulani Kawānanakoa Morris and William Jeremiah Ellerbrock, Kāwananakoa was adopted at the age of 5 by her maternal grandmother, Her Royal Highness Abigail Wahiika’ahu’ula Campbell Kawānanakoa.

她被富兰克林·德拉诺·罗斯福总统任命为国家青年管理局, she gave generously to many causes, including the restoration and preservation of the Iolani Palace, which now serves as a museum, added the palace release.

The princess also strongly supported the revival of the Hawaiian language through her multiple foundations, provided education scholarships for children and helped pay the medical bills of those in need, it added. Prior to her death, she established three foundations in her name so her philanthropy could continue after her.

Jaime and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Princess Abigail Kinoiki Kekaulike Kawānanakoa,” Hawaii Gov. Josh Green posted on Facebook. “Abigail bore the weight of her position with dignity and humility, enriched the lives of everyone she touched, and like so many Aliʻi who came before her, she has left a legacy dedicated to her people in perpetuity. Hawaiʻi mourns this great loss, and our aloha and heartfelt condolences go out to her entire ʻohana and all who had the privilege of knowing Princess Abigail Kawānanakoa.

Green ordered U.S. flags and the Hawaii state flag to be flown half-staff until Sunday.
