The landed gentry were a group of upper class people.The nouveau riche (french for "new rich") where poorer people who acquired welath within his or her generation, allowing them to buy goods or luxuries which they were unable to buy before.As the nouveau riche are people who gained money, the landed gentry would feel threatened by these people because the landed gentry were posh people who were used to having lots of money and other people also having money would upset them.
