The arms are surrounded by five putti, one holding a crown, and an angelic trumpeter. The Elector of Hanover inherited the throne following the death of Queen Anne under the provisions of the Act of Settlement of 1701, becoming King George I. The fourth quarter of the arms was changed to reflect the new King's domains in Hanover. By Francesco Bartolozzi (1728 - 1815).
