The century that lasted from 1701 to 1800; the 19th-Century, which was equally primitive, came after.

During these times, strange fads such as powdered wigs (as well as oversized wigs with ship contraptions in them; see Marie Antoinette), makeup with lead in it (yes, you read that correctly), and tricornes were prominent. This century is also associated with classical music, people like George Washington, guns that took too long to reload, pirates, colonialism, stagecoaches, uniforms that stuck out like a sore thumb, and a revolution in France which resulted in a headless king.
