The critically acclaimed TV Series, “Downton Abbey,” has renewed popular interest in the Edwardian era, when King Edward VII reigned in the United Kingdom. It was a time of great disparity between the haves and the have-nots. Wealthy aristocrats owned huge manor houses, and reveled in luxury, leisure, and extravagant entertaining. The rich expected their every whim to be indulged, and all their daily needs to be fulfilled, by the lower class of domestic servants. This “Golden Age,” which was a reaction to the Victorian era (and actually began in the late 19th century), perched on a shaky foundation as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the rigid British class system. Come learn about this fascinating time and the people who lived in it.
