The Regency—the period when the Prince of Wales (later King George IV) ruled as prince regent until his father, King George III, died—lasted less than ten years, but it left an indelible mark on the world. Whether in the arts (with greats like Jane Austen penning her works), in war (Napoleon's famous defeat at Waterloo), or in science (Michael Faraday and Humphry Davy made their significant contributions to electrochemistry and electromagnetism during this time), the strides made during these scant few years would set the groundwork for the Victorian era and its progress. This fascinating history "illuminates the ways this period shaped the modern world." (SM)
