Mira wasn't daunted at all by the local society and its ridiculous marriage mart. Her heart belonged to Lord Charles, who had been the object of her dreams ever since she was a child. Alas, Charles had eyes only for her ever-perfect sister, Drusilla.

This is an amazing article on debutante balls! Many thanks for the blog. I am so shocked at how much has changed in the past century and a bit , WOW!
Learning about the development of the wedding dress was also fascinating! Thanks so much for the information. This is an amazing article! I am a historian doing some research, and I did find this helpful! However, I want to suggest clarification about how you present the issue of life expectancy in this era. Most importantly, infant mortality went hand-in-hand with a high rate of maternal deaths during or shortly after childbirth.
Interestingly, the modern trend of women living longer than men is reflected in the historic record once the issue of childbirth is factored out; in other words, the same gender advantage that we see in life expectancy trends now was shared by past generations of women once they reached the end of their childbearing years. Unfortunately, many historians and other experts did not make gender distinctions part of their equations, meaning high rates of childbirth deaths for mothers also skewed the average life expectancy figures for men.

There are additional factors affecting the figures for historic male life expectancies, with modern trends again visible in the patterns from the past, particularly those involving violent or accident-related deaths. Thanks for your input, Cathy. Stats can always be skewed to support any argument.

I appreciate your time to include this information. In Victorian society, most women not bearing children were generally considered an anomaly, and a failure. Of course, childbirth was the leading cause of female death, just as it is in undeveloped countries today. As I noted in the article, people lived to their 80s and 90s.

Thank you for this article. Thank you, for the information! Thanks for the info on less aristocratic debutantes. I am writing a novel which includes two gentry girls having a season in London before returning home to marry in the country. This site is an incredible resource. The amount of information I am reading is astounding! I am absolutely fascinated by this era. Be it the American side or the British side, it is a fascinating time to study. Good info… Could you elaborate… After a lady was presented at court to the Queen did her family then host a type of ball in celebration?
Yes, there would be a ball where the debutante would greet guests with her parents. This might be held at the family home, another home, or a rented hall. There were circumstances when several sets of parents with their daughters hosted a ball together. Hi, what happened to orphan noble woman who wanted to participate in those events?
Thank you for providing me with all this information!
Hi Grace. Girls would look for a relative or family friend to present her at court, the higher in aristocratic rank the better. These cookies help us understand user behavior within our services.
