The Regency era in the United Kingdom is the period between 1811 â€” when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son the Prince of Wales, later George IV, was instated to be his proxy as Prince Regent â€” and 1820 â€” when George IV became King on the death of his father. The term "Regency era" is sometimes used to refer to a more extended timeframe than the decade of the formal Regency. The period between 1795 and 1837 â€” the latter part of the reign of George III and the reigns of his sons George IV, as Prince Regent and King, and William IV â€” was characterized by distinctive trends in British architecture, literature, fashions, politics, and culture.Daarbij moest ik meteen denken aan Blackadder the Third, waar de geweldige rol als Prince Regent is weggelegd voor Hugh - Mr. Palmer - Laurie. Dus allemaal in het kader van de regency-periode: ga Blackadder III kijken!!! Echt geweldige zwarte Britse humor. En de afleveringen hebben ook hele leuke namen, zoals "Sense and senility", "Dish and dishonesty" en "Nob and nobility".
