Hannover and the Hanseatic League

Hannover has been demonstrably active in the Hanseatic League since the 14th century at the latest. Hannover belonged to the so-called Saxon quarter of the Hanseatic League, that of Braunschweig and Magdeburg was cited as the most important cities in the region at the time. To that, in a number of external archives, for example in Lübeck, documents and other sources are passed down.
