The Kingdom of Hanover (German: Königreich Hannover) was established in October of 1814 by the Congress of Vienna, with the restoration of George III to his Hanoverian territories after the Napoleonic era. The Congress of Vienna also instituted a territorial exchange between Hanover and the Kingdom of Prussia, in which Hanover increased its area substantially, gaining the Bishopric of Hildesheim, East Frisia, the Lower County of Lingen and the northern part of the Bishopric of Münster. It lost those parts of the Duchy of Lauenburg to the east of the Elbe, and several small exclaves in the east.
