The protagonist have amnesia. Flora is one of the protagonist's sisters.

I wondered at the source of Flora's obvious wealth. If we were related, did that mean that perhaps I enjoyed somewhat of opulence, also? I thought about my economic and social status, my profession, my origins.

I'd like to know if "somewhat" makes the role of a pronoun in "I enjoyed somewhat of opulence."
Thank you in advance for your help.

    This is somewhat used as a noun with this meaning:
    some part, portion, amount, etc.

    It is not a common use these days. It appears that the author is imitating an old-fashioned manner of speach.
