The English Regency is the period from 1810 to 1820, when the mental illness of King George III prevented him from performing his duties, and his son, the future George IV, acted as Regent. The social life of this period is vividly recorded in the novels of Jane Austen. Social dances from the period include English country dances, quadrilles and cotillions.
