Victorian Era is defined by the reign of Queen Victoria of England (1837 - 1901). Within this time was the Civil War Era in the U.S. (1861-1865). Overlapping the Victorian and Edwardian Eras was the European historical period called la Belle Epoque (1870 - 1918). A woman wore a hat whenever she left her home. She removed her hat in a private home but left it on at public functions. Specific styles of hats were worn during mourning.
