The French event happens up to 30 days after 1st January 1676 (if France does not exist on this date, but is recreated, the trigger could be as late as 1st January 1681). Hanover has two options. Option A is Defy French Claims, and option B is Ignore It.

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

This is the one event in the Hanover's flavour events file. It happens on 1st January 1684, and adds 1 to Hanover's Innovative level.

The Hannover Dynasty in England

This event represents the elector of Hannover inheriting the throne of the United Kingdom. It is triggered on 29th July 1714 if England exists, and if England selected the first of two options in the event The Glorious Revolution on 15th February 1688. The English event only triggers if England selects the first of two options in the event The English Civil War in 1642 and England exists in January 1649.

The effect of the event is to create a Royal Marriage and Military Alliance with England, and to raise Relations with England by 100.

If the conditions for this event are met then there will also be an English event with the same name on 1st August 1714 which makes Hanover into an English vassal.
