Encyclopedia > Wilhelm Solf

Wilhelm Solf was a German Governor of Samoa in the early 20th century. He deposed several native chiefs, including Mamoe, who was an early figure in the Mau movement. As well as deposing members of the Maloa o Samoa (Samoan council of chiefs), Solf called in two German warships as a show of strength. Faced with this demonstration of military force, and with the movement divided, Mamoe surrendered, and resistance faded until the 1910s.
