The Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort - our fantastic venue for our October 27-28, 2023 Royal Recognition and Charity Gala

Just as in 2011 and in 2022, we plan to hold the 3rd Royal Recognition Gala in Hawaii at this resort.


The date was October 28, 312 A.D., when the young general Constantine Flavius won the battle at Milvian Bridge in Rome. This, plus his mother's devotion, let to the rise of Christianity to become the empire's main religion and his rise to emperor.  As Constantine I he ruled over the combined Roman empire from Constantinople, now known as Istanbul.  He created the SOVEREIGN CONSTANTINIAN ORDER OF CAPPADOCIA to honor his most valiant warriors, who would surely be killed, if they lost the battle and had been captured. He vested the 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 in 1453, when Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks, not so were its spirit and its rights as a Sovereign Nation, as the Principality of Cappadocia.  (As Adjudicated by Order of the International Civil Court, Permanent Organ of the European Court see:
