The evolution of German national identity in the nineteenth century is a perennially debated subject. While much has been written on nationalism in the smaller German states, especially in relation to regional dynastic identities and the notion of ‘Heimat’ (homeland) in the Southern kingdoms, Prussian state-building in the narrow sense of the word remains underresearched. Focusing on the expanding military associations’ movement in the formerly sovereign Kingdom of Hanover, which only merged with the Hohenzollern state in 1866, my paper examines how veterans of the dissolved Hanoverian army and younger army reservists engaged with the ambivalent connotations of Prussianness.
