Getting Ready in 1808

Karolina Zebrowska gets ready for a ball in 1808. This was the “Regency” period in England, which referred to the later period of the reign of King George III (who fought with George Washington in the Revolutionary War), when his mental health had deteriorated badly, and he handed over rule to a Regent, in this case his son, who in 1820 became King George IV. The Regency Act was actually in 1811, so the Regency period was 1811-1820. This was also the period of Jane Austen’s novels, especially Pride and Prejudice (1813), which is referred to many times in this video.
