Imam at-Tabari {May Allah have Mercy upon him} said:

“Imam Hasan the son of ‘Ali {May Allah be pleased with them} was 37 years old when his father fell at the hands of the assassin at Kufa.

Qais the son of Sa’d {May Allah be pleased with him} was the first to swear allegiance/give Bayah to Hasan on the day when ‘Ali died, and then it was followed by 40,000 Kufans, acclaiming Hasan as the fifth caliph.

{Tarikh at-Tabari, Volume 2 pg. 5}
