While many historians, individual members of the Government of Hawaii (as a matter of opinion and not policy), and a majority of Hawaii residents have considered the House of Kawananakoa the rightful heirs to the throne, smaller factions of native Hawaiians with objections to the family's ties to the Hawaii Republican Party have chosen instead to support various other branches of alii lines, such as descendants of collateral branches of extended House of Kamehameha (to which both the Kalakaua and Kawananakoa dynasties are distantly related, too) as having rights to the throne.

Listed below are the declared Kawananakoa heirs presumptive of the throne of Hawaii, past and present. Should the Hawaiian sovereignty movement succeed in the reinstitution of the Hawaiian monarchy, the heir presumptive would be declared monarch with the mandate of a plebiscite and constitution. The line split into two with the childless death of Edward D. Kawananakoa, as his father had claimed that Abigail (see below), the elder daughter of his wife, was not his progeny; however, as the Princess Lydia's daughter (also called Abagail), who spearheaded the restoration of the Palace and created great controversy when she allowed a LIFE magazine photographer to take a picture of her seated on the throne, never had any children and is now beyond childbearing years, that branch of the family is, effectively, extinct.
