The Personal Union with the British world empire was a source of great pride for the inhabitants of the Electorate of Hanover in the eighteenth century. That a sense of Britishness persisted in the former dependency after the official severing of the dynastic bond in 1837 has not yet been properly acknowledged in the historical literature. I therefore intend to re-examine the political and cultural significance of that legacy in the Prussian province of Hanover between 1866 and 1918 as a case study in the interwoven processes of regional, national, and trans-national identity formation.
