The English Regency period occurred roughly between 1790 and 1837. It took place between two rather distinctive periods; the Georgian Era, which dominated the 17th and 18th centuries, and the Romantic Period, which harkened the arrival of the Victorian age. This section offers insights and resources into that era.
