The following is the Line of succession to the former Hanoverian throne:

The Kingdom of Hanover was abolished in 1866 and the Duchy of Brunswick in 1918. The Hanoverian royal family was also deprived of the Dukedom of Cumberland and Teviotdale in 1919. The current senior male-line descendant of George III of the United Kingdom and head of the House of Hanover is Ernst August, Prince of Hanover, titular King of Hanover, Duke of Brunswick, and Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale. The Succession Law in Hanover and Brunswick is semi-salic, allowing for female succession but only on the extinction of the male line of the house.[1]

  • King George V of Hanover (1819–1878)
    • Prince Ernst August, Crown Prince of Hanover, 3rd Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale (1845–1923)
      • Ernest Augustus, Duke of Brunswick (1887–1953)
        • Ernest Augustus, Prince of Hanover (1914–1987)
          • Ernst August, Prince of Hanover (b. 1954)
            • (1) Prince Ernst August of Hanover (b. 1983)
              • Prince Welf August of Hanover (b. 2019)
            • (2) Prince Christian of Hanover (b. 1985)
              • Prince Nicolás of Hanover (b. 2020)
          • Prince Ludwig Rudolph of Hanover (1955–1988)
            • (3) Prince Otto Heinrich of Hanover (b. 1988)
          • (4) Prince Heinrich Julius of Hanover (b. 1961)
            • (5) Prince Albert of Hanover (b. 1999)
            • (6) Prince Julius of Hanover (b. 2006)
        • Prince George William of Hanover (1915–2006)



Note: Prince Ernst August, head of the House of Hanover since 1987, refused to give consent to his eldest son Hereditary Prince Ernst August’s marriage to Ekaterina Malysheva. As a result the couple’s children do not hold dynastic rights.[2]

Line of Succession in 1866

  • King George III of Hanover (1738–1820)
    • King George IV of Hanover (1762–1830)
    • King William of Hanover (1765–1837)
    • Ernest Augustus, King of Hanover (1771–1851)
      • King George V of Hanover (born 1819)
        • (1) Ernst August, Crown Prince of Hanover (b. 1845)
    • Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge (1774–1850)
      • (2) Prince George, Duke of Cambridge (b. 1819)

In the event of the extinction of the above royal line the succession was to pass to the ducal Brunswick line.[1] Living members of that line in 1866 were:

  • Frederick William, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel (1771–1815)
    • (3) Charles II, ex reigning Duke of Brunswick (b. 1804)
    • (4) William, Duke of Brunswick (b. 1806)
