What is a regency?

A Regency is a period of time in the 18th and 19th centuries in England, Scotland, and Wales, between the decline of the Stuart monarchy and the rise of the Hanoverian monarchy. During a Regency period, a Regent, usually a member of the royal family, presided over the kingdom, while a Regency ministry administered the government.

Usually, a Regency is marked by a lack of political stability, as the king is vacating his throne to allow a younger member of the royal family to ascend to the throne.
