Iolani Palace, Honolulu, Hawaii

The only royal palace in the United States, Iolani was the official residence of the Hawaiian monarchy from 1882 until foreign merchants overthrew Queen Liliuokalani in 1893. The queen was also imprisoned there for eight months in 1895 following efforts to restore her to the throne. Portraits of several Hawaiian queens are on display at Iolani.
