King Edward Claims the Throne of
Hanover-Brunswick for His Cousin,
But .Emperor William
One of the petty quarrels that oc
casionally arise between relations,
and sometimes carry them to at least
the. verge of war, is that of the suc
cession to the throne of Hanover-
Brunswick, which is now agitating
statesmen in England and Germany,
and involves directly the friendly rela
tions between the German emperor
and his uncle the king of England.
To gain an appreciation of the grav
ity with which the royal rivals view
the dispute, it is necessary to go
back to the time of George I., who,
when he succeeded to the EDglish
throne, was both duke of Brunswick
Luneburg and king of Hanover. At
that time there was, of course,, no
German empire, and the duchy and
the kingdom were independent princi
palities, in which their rulers held
large property and revenue rights, fre
quently referred to as the Guelf
treasure. But there was also another
house of- Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel,
which had arisen from a division of
the possessions of Ernest the Confes
sor, duke of Brunswick-Luneburg, be
tween his two sons, the elder of whom
was the progenitor of the house of
Then it happened that while George
III. of England inherited the Guelf
possessions, the dukedom of Brunswick-Luneburg
and the kingdom of
Hanover, his sister Augusta married
the duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel.
Her grandson, William duke of Bruns
wick, died in 1884 without issue. This
terminated the house of Brunswick
Wolfenbuttel, and left all claims to
the title of duke of Brunswick in the
house of Brunswick-Luneburg, which
is now represented by the duke of
Cumberland, cousin of King Edward.
Of course It is well known that
King Edward is of the house of Brunswick-Hanover,
but neither of the Ger
man titles which the Georges held
could pass to him"because of the Salic
law, which prevented his mother,
Queen Victoria, from, inheriting them.
The succession, therefore, to both
Brunswick and Hanover went to her
uncle, the duke of Cumberland, eldest
surviving son of George III.
The cousin of the English king
should be by descent both duke of
Brunswick and king of Hanover, but
in fact he is neither. There are a
lot of political complications ' which
have led the German emperor, to re
fuse his assent to the succession
urged by his royal uncle, and which
give rise to the bitterness of feeling
that has grown out of the dispute.
In 186C, war broke out between
Prussia and Austria. King George of
Hanover, son of that duke of - Cum
berland, who was son to George III.,
sided with Austria. Prussia won and
took revenge on George of Hanover
by depriving him of his kingdom.
After the death of ex-King George
his son, the present duke of Cumber
land, made claim to the throne of
Hanover. Not only was the claim re
jected, but the kingdom of Hanover
was absorbed by Prussia as a mere
province. Thus both titles and rev
enues were swept away, and all the
influence of the English monarch has
not been sufficient to secure their res
toration to his kinsman.
In the meantime, William, duke of
Brunswick, died, and the duke of
Cumberland, claimant to the throne
of Hanover, became heir to the duchy
Duke of Cumberland.
of Brunswick as well. Here again
Prussia intervened. The king of
Prussia had become German emperor
on the formation of the German em
tire, and both Prussia (which had ab
sorbed Hanover) and Brunswick, had
become German states. In anticipa
tion of the very contingency t which
now arises, a law had been passed in
1879- to the effect that if the legiti
mate heir to the duchy of Brunswick
(who was of course the duke of Cum
berland) were prevented from ascend
ing to the ducal throne a regency
should be constituted. The duke of
Cumberland was prevented from ' be
coming duke of Brunswick on the
ground of the disloyalty of his father,
King George of Hanover, in 1866. Con
sequently Prince Albrecht of Prussia,
a nephew of Kaiser : Wilhelm I. and
cousin of the present kaiser,' was
made regent of Brunswick.
In this condition matters remained
until the recent death of Prince Al
brecht, when the question of the duke
of Cumberland's claims once more be
