The island of Mangareva, in the Gambier Islands of Polynesia, was a monarchy until its annexation by France on 21 February 1881.[1] Although there were other monarchs of the Gambier Islands like Taravai, the kings of Mangareva were considered of the highest ranking. The islands kings and chiefs were called ʻakariki from the togoʻiti class.[2]

It will be seen (under the heading Tu) that these are gods.[clarification needed] In this respect it is like many Polynesian genealogies which commence with the gods, or, perhaps, deified ancestors.[3]

Bernardo Putairi, Prince Regent of Mangareva
Bernardo Putairi, Prince Regent of Mangareva

Because of King Joseph Gregorio II's minority, he ruled alongside his mother Queen Maria Eutokia Toaputeitou and uncle Elia Teoa. In 1868, Joseph Gregorio II died without issue and a regency was installed pending the birth a male heir to Agnès or Philomèle, the two surviving daughters of Maputeoa.[5][6][7][8]
