Hannover is an emergent faction in Napoleon: Total War.

General InformationEdit

Hannover emerges if its namesake region (initially controlled by France) has a successful rebellion or is liberated. It borders Denmark to the north, Oldenburg to the west, Cleves-Mark to the south-west, Hessen-Kassel to the south, Brandenburg to the south-east, and Mecklenburg to the north-east. The region of Hannover is required as a victory condition by Prussia, so should Hannover emerge in a Prussian campaign it usually has to be destroyed as part of victory conditions. Hannover is also required for British victory. It may be more useful for the British to liberate Hannover due to Hannover's strong historical friendship with it making it a reliable potential ally.

The region of Hannover is relatively minor, with a market/supply slot and a pasture. Its potential for training cheap cavalry that may also be easily replenished makes it a good stepping stone for France into Prussia (and vice versa).


Below is a list of grievances/friendships other factions have with Hannover if it emerges. This list is exhaustive; factions that are not listed do not have friendships or grievances (they are neutral).

Unusually for a minor faction, Hannover has access to elite heavy cavalry units. The rest of its roster is about average, with access to heavy and light cavalry and line infantry, light infantry and militia but lacking grenadiers, elite infantry and skirmishers. It has the standard minor faction artillery and naval roster.
