The Dukes of Brunswick-Lüneburg were elevated by the Holy Roman Emperor to the rank of Prince-Elector in 1692, and this elevation was confirmed by the Imperial Diet in 1708.

With a population of 518,000, Hanover is a major centre of Northern Germany and the country's thirteenth largest city.

Hanover hosts annual commercial trade fairs such as the Hanover Fair and the Ce BIT.

The city is also a major crossing point of railway lines and highways (Autobahnen), connecting European main lines in both the east-west (Berlin–Ruhr area) and north-south (Hamburg–Munich, etc.) directions. The German spelling (with a double n) is becoming more popular in English; recent editions of encyclopaedias prefer the German spelling, Hanover was founded in medieval times on the east bank of the River Leine.
