An image illustrating the family tree of the royal house of Hanover (officially known as the House of Brunswick-Lüneburg, Hanover line) that ruled Britain for 187 years (1714 - 1901). The Hanoverians were originally a long shot as the first of their Britsh Kings, George Louis, elector of Hanover (aka George I of Great Britain), was, in 1714, only 52nd in line to the throne (although the nearest Protestant candidate according to the Act of Settlement). The dynasty went on to provide six monarchs until 1901 when Queen Victoria was succeeded by Edward VII from the house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (renamed the House of Windsor in 1917).
