By the terms of the constitutional monarchy formed inthe English Parliament represented the interests of the nation by ritually gathering noblemen and bishops in the House of Lords and the often aristocratic elected representatives of boroughs and counties in the House of Commons in order to form a government together with the Crown.
This system went unchanged even as the Parliament of England and Wales combined with those of Scotland in and Ireland in the Act of Union. By reforming the House of Commons in response to widespread protests, however, the ruling class in Parliament effectively sanctioned a changing political order.
The Great Reform Act thus marks a crucial moment in the history of British political representation.
It explores this crisis in aristocratic rule through the prisms of class, religion, geography, and the rise of the popular press. Adopted with the restoration of monarchy after the heady days of the English civil war, it offered constitutional ballast for a balance of power.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland continued to be ruled by an hereditary monarchy in tandem with a House of Lords comprised of individuals who were either elevated by the king or inherited the rank from their fathers.
Then as now, the only elected Members of Parliament served in the House of Commons. The difference between the House of Commons and the House of Lords was, moreover, far from crystal-clear in the s, as electoral quirks and an evolving system of patronage ensured a ruling-class monopoly on parliamentary elections.
The electoral system hinged on geography and past practice rather than systematic procedures or population surveys. In districts with larger numbers of electors, meanwhile, votes could be openly purchased and voters openly punished.
