King George I was the first of six monarchs to reign over Britain from the House of Hanover. He came to the throne of England as a result of the death of his second cousin Anne, Queen of Great Britain and the Act of Settlement in 1701. That act sought to ensure the crown would remain in Protestant hands and dictated that the crown always passes to the next Protestant in the line of succession. George I would rule from 1714 to 1727.
