“God Save The King” (or, “God Save The Queen” when the monarch was female), in spite of it being British, was used by the Kingdom of Hawaii from 1810 to 1860. In 1860, Kamehameha IV ran a contest to set the tune to Hawaiian lyrics, and it became “E Ola Ke Alii Ke Akua”. Later, “He Mele Lahui Hawaii” and “Hawaii Ponoi” became anthems.
