Prince Georg(e) (Lewis) of Hanover, later King George I of Great Britain, was Prince of Hanover in the 1840s-1850s, it seems, so unless I am getting it wrong, was the dedicatee. - Schissel -- I have been corrected: George I of England reigned from 1714 to 1727. George V (1819-78, reigned 1851-1866) - the last King of Hanover - who may have become Crown Prince (not Prince Royal of England, but perhaps of Hanover in Germany) in 1837 and who succeeded to the throne of England in 1853 - may be more likely here?
William IV of England was the last UK monarch to rule Hanover in personal union. He died in 1837, without any legitimare heirs. He was succeded in England by his niece Queen Victoria, but in Hanover only males could suceed (Salic law), so his brother Ernst August became king. He died in 1851 and was succeeded by his son George V (1819-78, reigned 1851-1866). His reign ended prematurely because Prussia annexed Hanover after winning the Battle of Langensalza (1866). German unification under Prussian hegemony followed in 1870.
