Period makeups: nineteenth-century Britain

I have freely mixed ‘real’ historical persons and fictional characters: all films are works of the imagination.

I freely confess that I have never succeeded in finishing a Jane Austen novel; nevertheless, the characters of Elizabeth Bennet, Caroline Bingley, Mrs Bennet and lady Catherine de Bourg serve as a good illustration of the range

For Britain I have taken the nineteenth century as running from the Napoleonic Wars to the First World War.
