Bridgerton takes Netflix viewers back to a simpler time where class status, ballgowns, and the land you owned were all that mattered – but when is Bridgerton set? And what time era?
Returning for season 2, we're set for another series of gossip, blossoming romances and undoubtedly, steamy scenes as Anthony Bridgerton sets out to find a wife.
But as we gawp at more stunning ballgowns and learn of the social hierarchy, we look at exactly when and where Bridgerton is set and what time period they're living in. Here’s all you need to know about the era of the new Netflix series:
Bridgerton is set between 1813 and 1827, also dubbed the Regency era when Great Britain and Ireland was coming to the end of the Georgian era.
Queen Charlotte, played by Golda Rosheuval, plays a big part in Bridgerton, deciding which young woman will be dubbed the woman of the moment in the marriage market.
Golda’s character Queen Charlotte is of course depicting George III’s wife, but in Bridgerton she portrays a gossip-loving royal at the “top of the food chain,” as the actress put it.
“Everything she says must go.”
