This list shows the line of succession for England as at 2 September 2014. To see a different line, use the Search Criteria at the bottom of the page.

At the top of the list should be the current monarch on that date. If you happen to have specified one of the few dates on which there was no reigning monarch, the most recent monarch before that date will be shown.

On 24 June 1701, the English Act of Settlement received Royal Assent. This stipulated that, after Anne and her direct heirs, the succession should pass to the Electress Sophia of Hanover (a granddaughter of James I, and mother of the future George I) and her heirs; it also excluded anyone who was a Catholic, and anyone who had married a Catholic.

Italicised names, with no position, represent those who are excluded from the succession; when you rest your cursor on one of these names, a small label should appear containing the reason for the exclusion (please note that this feature may not work in all versions of all browsers).

Click any name in the list for biographical details of that person.

Search Criteria

Enter the date for which you wish to see the line of succession.

Also, select the kingdom in which you are interested. From 1 May 1707 onwards, with the Acts of Union in effect, it doesn't matter which kingdom you choose - the results should be the same.

The further back into the past you go, the more conjectural the results become: this is mainly due to the uncertainty surrounding many individuals' birth and death dates.


As At (dd / mm / yyyy):  /  / 
Kingdom: England Scotland
    

These lists are generated by a computer program. It would be impractical to check the results for every day during the past thousand years or more, but we are in the process of checking particular dates of interest, such as the day before each monarch's reign ended. Should you happen to spot an error, we would therefore be grateful to hear about it: please send us the details via the Feedback page.
