1849: Centaurs were tolerated in polite society as long as they observed Victorian mores regarding clothing ie hiding their horsey bits under a skirt (or a kilt for the males). They could learn to sit on chairs, but were often privately sneered at for their insistence on using a dessert spoon for soup, cutting bread rolls with a knife, and vigourously mounting each other between courses whenever they felt like it. 'Its how we do things in Narnia' was not considered a valid excuse.
