The House of Welfburg (also referred to as the House of Superior or the Hanoverian-Jacobite House) is the ruling royal house of the Kingdom of Superior and is the official successor to the House of Hanover. Along with throne of Superior, the House of Welfburg also is a claimant to the defunct throne of Hanover, however the claim has been largely ceremonial. The House of Welfburg is a cadet branch of the Sierra House of Columbia, which is also apart of the greater House of Stuart. The House is also descended from the House of Hanover, the original ruling house of Superior. The house was founded by Christian of Sierra in 1929, shortly after his marriage to Princess Anne of Lakota. The House is one of five ruling houses in the Americas, the others being the Sierran House of Columbia, the British House of Windsor, the Brazilian House of Orléans-Braganza, and the Greenlandic House of Hesse.
The House of Welfburg was established in 1929 by Prince Christian of Sierra shortly following his marriage to the future Queen Anne of Superior. The name Welfburg originated from the small town of Welfburg, Dakota, which was the populated area and town that Prince Christian visited when he first arrived in Superior. Despite objections from members of Anne's house, the couple's children became members of the house. With the ascension of William I, the House of Welfburg replaced the House of Hanover, which had reign over Superior since it's independence, as the ruling house of the kingdom. Throughout William I's reign, the House of Welfburg legitimized itself throughout the nation and the world, establishing itself as respected royal house.
Despite its relative infancy compared to other royal houses, in the contemporary era, the House of Welfburg is considered one of the more recognizable royal houses in the world along with other Anglo-American and European royal and imperial houses, largely due to Superior's influence and role in world politics and contemporary history, particularly during Great War I. Since the reign of William I, the House of Welfburg has greatly expanded it's membership with majority of the contemporary noble titles in Superior being held by members of the House, who are in turn members of the Superian royal family. Through the current monarch, William II, the House of Welfburg continues to reign over Superior. Due to it's Sierran background, the House of Welfburg and members of the royal family are related to the House of Columbia, Sierra's ruling royal house.

According to a royal proclamation created by Anne, all descendants of male line of Prince Christian and Queen Anne are considered members of the House of Welfburg and take the name of Augustus (for males)/Augusta (for females)-Miller. Typically children who are born from a female member of the House of Welfburg do not take the name Augustus/Augusta-Miller, and in turn are not considered members of the house and instead considered apart of their father's house or family. However children born to female members through a matrilineal agreement are considered members of the house.
