Hanover, German Hanover, former state of northwestern Germany, first an electorate (1692–1806) of the Holy Roman Empire, then a kingdom (1814–66), and finally a Prussian province (1866–1945). After World War II the state was administratively abolished; its former territory formed about 80 percent of the Land (state) of Lower Saxony.

Hanover grew out of the early 17th-century division of territories of the Welf house of Brunswick-Lüneburg. Created in 1638 as the principality of Brunswick-Calenberg-Göttingen, it came to be named after its principal town, Hanover. Ernest Augustus I (1630–98), duke from 1680, united the principality with that of Lüneburg, marrying his son George Louis to Sophia Dorothea of Celle, only daughter of George William, duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg; upon the latter’s death in 1705 the two states were formally joined. Ernest Augustus in 1692 had obtained from the Holy Roman emperor Leopold I the designation of his principality as the ninth electorate of the empire, called officially Brunswick-Lüneburg but commonly Hanover.

Ernest Augustus[]

Ernest Augustus, also called (1799–1837) Prince Ernest Augustus, Duke Of Cumberland, Duke Of Teviotdale, Earl Of Armagh, was the king of Hanover from 1837 to 1851 and the fifth son of George III of England.

Ernest Augustus studied at Göttingen, entered the Hanoverian army, and served as a leader of cavalry when war broke out between Great Britain and France in 1793. When Hanover withdrew from the war in 1795 he returned to England, being made lieutenant general in the British army in 1799. In the same year he was created duke of Cumberland.

Dawn of Man[]

"Hail to the King of Hanover, Ernest Augustus. Ascending to the throne in 1837 during a time of radical change across Europe, your reign would oversee the lone path that Hanover was to tred. The great personal union with Britain had come to an end, and yours would be a kingship on the fringes of revolution and industrialization. Though controversial for your hardline conservatism, you nonetheless steered Hanover through the storms of change; ushering in industrial modernity and ensuring the safety of your kingdom against the tides of revolution sweeping across Europe.

The noble House of Hanover is yours, Ernest Augustus, and with it is the charge of its ancient territories and peoples. The Hanoverian realm must not let the chance of industry pass it by. Can you lead this industrial revolution? Can you link your realm together through coal and rail? Can you build a civilization that stands the test of time?"

Introduction: "Hail. I am Ernest Augustus, king of Hanover. Speak quickly in my presence, for I have other matters to which to attend. Other, more important matters."

Defeat: "I was not fit for this throne. I was made for greater things. This loss here, today, is proof of that."
