Hanover, Lower Saxony, Germany

Hanover or Hannover, on the river Leine, is the capital of the federal state of Lower Saxony.

Hanover was formed by the union of several dynastic divisions of the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg, with the sole exception of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. From 1714 to 1837, it was joined in a personal union with the United Kingdom, which terminated upon the accession in Britain of Queen Victoria as under the terms of Salic Law, a woman could not rule Hanover. Until 1803, when it was occupied by French and Prussian troops, Hanover was a constituent state of the Holy Roman Empire; when it regained independence in 1814, Hanover was raised to a kingdom, which lasted until 1866.

In the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, Hanover was annexed by Prussia and became the Province of Hanover.
