THE HOUSE OF HANOVER & THE HOUSE OF SAXE-COBURG AND GOTHA—From England to Uganda

Have you ever asked the question “Why is Idi Amin labeled as a “British Prince” and why was he called “The Last King of Scotland?” The House of Hanover, whose members are known as Hanoverians, is a German royal house that ruled Hanover, Great Britain, and Ireland at various times during the 17th through 20th centuries...

George I became the first Hanoverian monarch of Great Britain and Ireland in 1714... At Victoria's death in 1901, the throne of the United Kingdom passed to her eldest son Edward VII, a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha... In 1837, the personal union of the thrones of the United Kingdom and Hanover ended with the death of William IV... Succession to the Hanoverian throne was regulated by semi-Salic law (agnatic-cognatic), which gave priority to all male lines before female lines, so that it passed not to Queen Victoria but to her uncle, Ernest Augustus... When Queen Victoria, the last British monarch provided by the House of Hanover, died, her son and heir Edward VII became the first British Monarch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Edward taking his family name from that of his father, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha...

The Protectorate of Uganda was a protectorate of the British Empire from 1894 to 1962... In 1893 the Imperial British East Africa Company transferred its administration rights of territory consisting mainly of the Kingdom of Buganda to the British Government...
