] ] ] I was wondering, when exactly was 'Regency", and found an interesting page: here is a link to a page with a pre-Regency and Regency chronology. It is part of the meanderings of Regency page.
Ah! There's the explanation. I should have read on. "Loosely" the Regency Era covers a broader time, betweenn the end of the Georgian and the beginning of the Victorian, and most important, many Regency romances are actually set in the decade prior to 1811. That had puzzled me -- the use of the "loosely" and the extended time often referred to as Regency.
