Corrected entry: The narrator is telling ('According to a report in the Saint James Chronic...') that Lady Lyndon's father, Charles Lyndon (played by Frank Middlemass), died at Spa, in the Kingdom of Belgium. There's no year mentioned in this scene, but at the end of the movie (a few years later), when Lady Lyndon signs a cheque for Barry, we can see on this cheque the year 1789. The Kingdom of Belgium did not yet exist in 1789: Belgium became a Kingdom in 1831 (21st of July to be exact). (01:37:00)
Character mistake: When Barry Lyndon is talking to his mother privately, while standing on the bridge overlooking the water, Barry's mother refers to Barry's son Brian as being "at the mercy of his stepbrother", meaning Lord Bullingdon. They have the same mother. Lord Bullingdon and Brian would be half brothers, not step brothers.
