Re: Hanover to Coburg

Wouldn't it be a fist if Charles decided to honour his grandmother by including her family's name in the name of his dynasty?
The House remained Hannover till Victoria's death in 1901, as she was the last hannoverian reigning monarch in the UK.
Edward VII was the first monarch from the Saxe-Coburg-House, followed by his son George V until this one changed the house name to Windsor in 1917 due to anti-german feelings.
Mind you, it took him 3 years to figure out that !
What Charles will call himself is the million dollar question. Either remain Windsor or change to Windsor-Mountbatten.
When the reign of Anne ended in Britain, the House of Hanover came to the throne? Did the house remain Hanover until Victoria married Albert? What was the name after that event? Now, monarchs and their families have been calling themselves Windsors. Is that designation soon to end?
