germany's royal heritage
Welcome to the Royal Castles, Parks and Gardens of Germany! The connections between Great Britain and Germany’s Royal Families go back to more than 300 years. The first Hanoverian King of England was only 52nd in line to the throne, but thanks to the Act of Settlement, George was the nearest Protestant eligible to take the crown.
