The House of Hanover (or the Hanoverians) is a German royal dynasty that ruled the Electorate of Hanover and then the Kingdom of Hanover. It succeeded the House of Stuart as monarchs of Great Britain and Ireland in 1714 and ruled the United Kingdom until the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.

The House of Hanover was formally named the House of Brunswick-Lüneburg, Hanover line, as it was originally a cadet branch of the House of Brunswick-Lüneburg. The senior branch became extinct in 1884, and the House of Hanover is now the only surviving branch of the House of Welf, which is the senior branch of the House of Este. The current head of the House of Hanover is Ernst August, Prince of Hanover.
