HANNOVER

 

 

 

 

 

The members of this family bear the title Prince[ss] of Hannover, of Great Britain and Ireland, Duke/Duchess of Braunschweig-Lüneburg, Royal Highness. The British titles are due to their male-line descent from King Ernst August I of Hannover, son of King George III of Great Britain and Ireland, and are used by the family in spite of the British Crown stripping the family of their British titles, including the Dukedom of Cumberland and Teviotdale, during the First World War.
