Thiel of PNG

I am looking for any information on a Caroline Theil. Married 3 times to Swartz. Schmidt and Moeder, all germans. She was born 19/11/1887 and died 25/05/1968 in Papua New Guinea. she was raised by Pheobe Parkinson and Pheobe's husband Richard, also a german. Pheobe was a sister to Queen Emma from Somoa. She shifted to PNG to run plantations for Queen Emma. Emma has a very rich history courted by royalty in Europe and eventually dying from liver failure ( her only source of liquid intake was champagne ) in Sydney Australia. Richard was killed in a fall from a horse and phoebe died in a Japanese prisoner of war camp from starvation. We have no idea who Caroline's parents were with heaps of rumours abounding. ie. illegitimate child of Emma etc. Caroline was my wife's ( a Moeder ) grandmother
Any scrap of information would be gratefully received. we have been looking ever since all the sons( no daughters ) died and realized that none of the remaining family members had any knowledge of her history.
