His Majesty, Edmund K. Silva Jr., Ali‘i Nui Mō‘ī closely resembles his direct ancestor, Kamehameha the Great. Not only is there a close physical resemblance, but there is a fierceness in spirit that is present. They both have the same determination of a warrior King protecting and uniting their people. King Silva holds a law degree and has been a Federal Judge for the Aniyvwiya Cherokee Nation. This legal experience has served him well as he works towards restoration of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i as the country it has always been. The United States participated in the 1933 Montevideo Convention on Rights and Duties of States where a common definition of a country was determined. In Article 1 it defines a country (state) under international law as possessing four qualifications – a permanent population, a defined territory, a government and the capacity to enter into relations with other states.
King Silva has further strengthened the country’s status by initiating Treaties with other countries, reorganizing the government into a modern format based on ancient traditions, actively working with Kingdom business around the world and being recognized globally as the dedicated leader of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i.
I am honored, and consider it my sacred duty, to be Ali‘i Nui Mō‘ī of the Kingdom of Hawai‘i.HIS MAJESTY, EDMUND K. SILVA JR.*text
