Zuleika Dobson was published in 1911, during the first year of the reign of George V (1865-1936).

 

The Edwardian era refers to the short reign of England’s King Edward VII (1841-1910), who succeeded his mother, Queen Victoria (1819-1901), and ruled until his death in 1910.

 

Edward’s only living son, George, then became king, but the years of George’s reign are not usually referred to as a Georgian period. Instead, the first years of his rule, especially those predating World War I (1914-1918), are commonly considered to fall within the Edwardian period.
