Notes[eedit | eedit soorce]

  1. Hanover is the traditional English spelling. The German spelling (with a double n) is becoming more popular in English; recent editions of encyclopedias prefer the German spelling[2][3] and local government uses the German spelling on English websites.[4] The English pronunciation is applied to both the German and English spellings. The traditional English spelling should always be used in historical contexts, especially when referring to the British House of Hanover.
