Nb. The Régence ​in France ​occurred between 1715 and 1723, when King Louis XV was a minor, and France​ was governed by Philippe d’Orléans (1674-1723) a nephew of King Louis XIV ​(​1638-1715​)​.
During the Régence ​in France we see a transition away from the rich heavy ornate styles of the Louis XlV period​ into the first quarter of the eighteenth century when the ​​Rococo gradually became more fashionable amongst the aristocracy.
