From Wikipedia:
After the war of 1866, which Hanover had lost on the side of Austria, Prussia annexed the kingdom of Hanover and incorporated it as a province of Hanover into its territory. In 1946, the state of Hanover was founded. It merged soon afterwards with the smaller neighboring countries Braunschweig, Oldenburg and Schaumburg-Lippe to the new country of Lower Saxony, which took over the capital as well as essential parts of the state symbolism of the country Hanover.
Essern is a district of the Diepenau district in the municipality of Uchte in the Lower Saxony district of Nienburg / Weser.
