This very large map, printed on 4 sheets, shows a re-aligned Europe after the Congress of Vienna. An oddly-misshapen Switzerland erroeneously includes what is now the French departement of Haute Savoie and part of Savoie, extending as far south as Aix-les-Bains, although this territory had in fact been returned to the Kingdom of Sardinia. The German state of Hanover is coloured pink and described as being "British Dominions"; King George III of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland was also concurrently King of Hanover from 1814 (although he never visited the territory). The personal union of the thrones of the United Kingdom and Hanover ended in 1837 with the accession of Queen Victoria; succession to the Hanoverian throne gave priority to male lines, so that it passed instead to Queen Victoria's uncle, the Duke of Cumberland.
