|The Tudors start with Henry VII of England ( Henry Tudor) in 1485 and run to to the death of Elizabeth I in 1603, they were followed by the Stuarts and that period includes our Civil War 1603 - 1714.
The Georgian Period starts with George I of England through to George IV and runs from 24 May 1714-26 June 1862 .
Queen Victoria was on the throne of England 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901
After Victoria you have the Edwardian Era which is classed as being from the death of Victoria in 1801 to the start of WWI in 1914.
All these Periods have their names taken from the Kings and Queens of England who were there at the time.
The Elizabethan Period is late Tudor, Anne was Queen in 1702 so late Stuart & there were two King Williams who also squeeze in for short periods but not terribly long for either, one between Elizabeth I and Anne and one between George II and George IV. The regency period covers the later part of the reign of George III who was very ill and so a Prince Regent took over for a while.
I hope that helps. Choose a period and Google it, there is a lot of stuff on the web that might help.
