Below is an incomplete list of Knights Commander of the Royal Guelphic Order, from the creation of the order in 1815. Appointments to the order have not been conferred by the British monarch (in their role as King of Hanover) since the death of King William IV in 1837, when the personal union of the United Kingdom and Hanover ended. It has however continued to be conferred by the Kingdom of Hanover as an independent state (for example, to Ernest Augustus, Crown Prince of Hanover in 1866) and subsequently after the defeat and forced dissolution of the Kingdom of Hanover by the Kingdom of Prussia to be awarded by the Royal House of Hanover.
