Before social media and cute terms like “influencer,” there were plenty of people who made names and reputations for themselves as trend-setters, intentionally or otherwise.

Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire; George “Beau” Brummell; and Queen Adelaide are three British “influencers” I’ll get to shortly.
