    Royal Recognition and Charity Gala

    Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort, Coral Ballroom, Honolulu, Hawaii

    The date was October 28, 312 A.D, exactly 1711 years ago, when Constantine I  won the battle at Milvian Bridge in Rome, leading to his rise to Emperor of the Roman Empire and Christianity. He ruled over it from  Constantinople where Cappadocia is located.

    Constantine I created the SOVEREIGN CONSTANTINIAN ORDER OF CAPPADOCIA in honor of his most valiant warriors, who surely would have been killed if they lost the battle, or been captured. He vested this Sovereign Order with the Roman Province of Cappadocia, a kingdom and principality, with a history spanning more than 3,000 years B.C.  Although the Order’s land was lost, yet not the spirit and its rights as a sovereign nation were reaffirmed. Just as in 2011, and 2020, we plan to hold the 3rd Royal Recognition Gala on the Island of Oahu, once the seat of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The only State in the United States with a Royal Palace, built by King David Kalakaua, a true Innovator having installed a phone at the Royal Iolani Palace, even before the White House. He enjoyed the arts, in particular hula dance, and composed music. King Kalakaua surely would have met our Nomination Committee’s strict requirements.

    Together with the officers of the Grand Priory of Hawaii of the Royal Order of Constantine the Great and Saint Helen, Duchess Consort Dr. Nancy, Event Chair,  and I plan to meet and exceed your expectations. In Chivalry, Duke Gerhart

The tour will feature historical accounts and personal items belonging to King Kalākaua to help guests better understand not only what Kalākaua achieved locally and globally, but also how his tangible vision of  Iolani Palace, continues to contribute to the Hawaiian way of life and his preservation of hula, history, and tradition.
