In many monarchies, there are royal houses which typically represent a line of family members closely related. When the British Queen Anne died, the House of Stuart changed to the House of Hanover because her distant cousin George I obtained the throne. The House lasted until Queen Victoria's death, even though her son became King. Edward VII's father's royal house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha replaced the House of Hanover. Edward VII's house's name would change again one generation later to the House of Windsor after tense British-German relations during World War I.
