The Edwardian Era

When Queen Victoria died in 1901, Edward VII became King. He was the leader of a fashionable elite that set a style influenced by art and fashions of Continental Europe. This is because he was very fond of travelling.

The Edwardian era ended when Edward died in 1910. But sometimes the period was extended when the Titantic sunk in 1912.
