Flag Friday: Archduchy of Hanover

The Archduchy of Hanover was formed in 1872 after the Second French Empire won the Franco-Prussian War. The German territories were broken into three states - the Prussian dominated North German Federation, French dominated Bavaria, and UK dominated Hanover.

Over the next few decades a number of British industrial interests would expand operations into Hanover increasing its ties with the UK. British involvement in the country would continue as it attempted to create a counter-balance to the growing ties between Emperor Louis of France and Tsar Alexander III.
