New and old European nobility

In early modern times, the nobility becomes heterogeneous. This was especially evident in England. The wealthy people who bought the title of nobility, as well as some of the nobles who engaged in fencing, entrepreneurial activities, began to be called new nobles. Those who continued to run the traditional economy were called old nobles. Their lifestyle has changed little. They continued to play an important role in the life of the state, being advisers to the king. In England, the old nobles sat in parliament and occupied important government and military posts. The new nobles became close to entrepreneurs and often became opposed to royal power. The lifestyle of the nobility was similar to that of the wealthy entrepreneurs.
