The House of Hanover - 15 September 2011 - stamps and miniature sheet

The penultimate Kings & Queens issue covers the Hanoverian erafrom 1714 to 1901.

The last Stuart monarch, Queen Anne died without issue, she was succeeded by her German second cousin, George I, of the House of Hanover, who was a descendant of the Stuarts through his maternal grandmother, Elizabeth, daughter of James VI. George II was the last British monarch to have been born outside Great Britain, and was famous for his numerous conflicts with his father and, subsequently, with his son.  He was succeeded by his grandson, George III who was born in Norfolk House, London, and never visited Hanover.  He reigned for nearly 60 years, though bad health meant that his son ruled as Regent from 1811.  George III died at Windsor Castle on 29 January 1820, six days after the death of his fourth son.  He was succeeded by two of his sons George IV and William IV, who both died without surviving legitimate children, leaving the throne to the only legitimate child of the Duke of Kent, Victoria, the last monarch of the House of Hanover.
