Top Definition
wealthy aristocrats (and/or nobles and/or merchants) living on manorial estates in the countryside and owning slaves or serfs.
Landed gentry, exempt from mandatory military under Catherine The Great of Russia, retired to their estates to live like hedonists; this is part of the reason why Russian society actually degenerated to the point of revolution by 1917.
