Socially and politically, a landed aristocracy was the
dominant class on the continent. The members of this
class were united by a common way of life that cut
across regional divisions. They owned estates in the
countryside and also townhouses. They spoke French
for purposes of diplomacy and in high society. Their
families were often connected by ties of marriage. This
powerful aristocracy was, however, numerically a small
group. The majority of the population was made up of
the peasantry. To the west, the bulk of the land was
farmed by tenants and small owners, while in Eastern
and Central Europe the pattern of landholding was
characterized by vast estates which were cultivated
by serfs. In Western and parts of Central Europe, the
growth of industrial production and trade meant the
growth of towns and the emergence of commercial
classes whose existence was based on production for
the market. Industrialization began in England in the
second half of the eighteenth century, but in France
and parts of the German states, it occurred only during
the nineteenth century.
