The Regency Era

In the United Kingdom The Regency  period is between The Early 19th Century 1811 and 1820, when King George III was unfit to rule and his son, the Prince of Wales, ruled as his proxy as Prince Regent. 
The Regency Period is noted for its elegance and achievements in the fine arts and architecture.   Regency was also a period of great refinement and cultural achievement. Regency" is being used to describe the transition between "Georgian" and "Victorian" eras, the focus is on the "pre-Victorian" period from 1811, when the formal Regency began. One of the greatest patrons of the arts and architecture was the Prince Regent himself (the future George IV). Upper class society flourished in a sort of mini-Renaissance of culture and refinement. As one of the greatest patrons of the arts, the Prince Regent ordered the costly building and refurbishing of the beautiful and exotic Brighton Pavilion, the ornate Carlton House, as well as many other public works and architecture.
