HISTORY

Hanover was founded in medieval times on the east bank of the RiverLeine.
Its original nameHonoveremay mean "high (river)bank", though this is
debated (cf.das Hohe Ufer). Hanover was a small village of ferrymen and
fishermen that became a comparatively large town in the 13th century due to
its position at a natural crossroads. As overland travel was relatively difficult,
its position on the upper navigable reaches of the river helped it to grow by
increasing trade. It was connected to theHanseatic Leaguecity ofBremenby
the Leine, and was situated near the southern edge of the wide
North German Plainand north-west of theHarzmountains, so that east-west
traffic such as mule trains passed through it. Hanover was thus a gateway to
theRhine,RuhrandSaarriver valleys, their industrial areas which grew up to
the southwest and the plains regions to the east and north, for overland
traffic skirting the Harz between theLow CountriesandSaxonyorThuringia.
