This image depicts the family tree of the royal house of Hanover, officially known as the House of Brunswick-Lüneburg, Hanover line, which reigned over Britain for a remarkable 187 years, from 1714 to 1901. The ascension of the Hanoverians to the British throne was an unexpected turn of events, as their first king, George Louis, the Elector of Hanover (also known as George I of Great Britain), was initially 52nd in line to the throne in 1714. Nevertheless, George I, the nearest Protestant candidate according to the Act of Settlement, became the first monarch of the Hanoverian dynasty. The lineage continued with five more monarchs until 1901 when Queen Victoria was succeeded by Edward VII from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (later renamed the House of Windsor in 1917).
