The Crown Colony of Hawaii was a Crown colony of the Empire of Cygnia that was established in 1894 following the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and its annexation to Cygnia in January 1893. It existed until 1950, interrupted by a Japanese occupation from 1941 to 1946 during World War III. When Japan surrendered at the end of the war, Hawaii was handed back to the Cygnians, who placed the islands under a military administration. During this time, the decolonisation of Hawaii began, and a peaceful transition to independence culminated in the proclamation of the Republic of Hawaii on 4 July 1950.
