Lady Godiva

Publisert den

Lady Godiva, (født ca. 990, død 1067) var en angelsaksisk adelskvinne som i følge legenden red naken gjennom gatene i byen Coventry i England for å kunne be om at en urimelig skatt ble opphevet. Skatten var pålagt av hennes egen ektemann overfor dennes undersåtter.

Det engelske begrepet «peeping Tom» for en som titter på nakne kvinner kommer fra denne hendelsen. I henhold til legenden var en mann ved navn Tom som så henne ri naken og øyeblikkelig ble blind.
