    Sovereignty activists say the revolution that overthrew the monarchy was illegal, and that the ensuing Republic of Hawaii was not internationally recognized as a nation and therefore had no right to offer a treaty of annexation to the United States. But letters granting full diplomatic recognition to the Republic of Hawaii were personally signed in Fall 1894 by Emperors, Kings, Queens, and Presidents of at least 19 foreign nations on 4 continents written in 11 languages, including Queen Victoria of Britain, President Grover Cleveland, Tsar Alexander III of Russia, the King and Queen of Spain, President of France, Crown Prince of China on behalf of the Emperor, and others.
