The Edwardian or Edwardian period in the history of Britain covers a short reign of King Edward VII, 1901-1910, sometimes extending in both directions to capture long-term trends from the 1890s until World War II. Queen Victoria’s death in January 1901 saw the end of the Victorian era. The new King Edward VII was already the leader of the fashionable elite style group influenced art and fashion in continental Europe. Samuel Haynes described the Edwardian era as “leisure time when women wore hats and did not vote, when the rich were not ashamed to live in the clear, and really the sun never set on the British flag.”
The liberals returned to power in 1906 and made major repairs. Under the upper class, the era was marked by significant changes in policy among sectors of society that largely excluded the scope of power in the past, and ordinary workers. Increasingly politicized women.
The Edwardian period sometimes imagines as a romantic golden age of long summer evenings and garden parties, enjoying the sun that is not defined by the British Empire. This perception was created in the 1920s later by those who remembered the age of Edwardian with nostalgia, looking back at his childhood through the abyss of the Great War. Omar al-Edwardi also considered an average period of pleasure between the great achievements of the Victorian era and the disaster of the next war. Recent assessments confirm significant differences between the rich and the poor during the Edwardian era and describe them as announcing major changes in political and social life. A popular novel written by Robert Trisel, a treacherous-trorous tender, is a powerful example of social criticism at that time.
Despite this, this kind of perception has recently been challenged by contemporary historians. British historian Lawrence James said that in the early twentieth century, the British felt increasingly threatened by rival powers such as Germany, Russia and the United States
