Mini History Blog: Lady Godiva



Today, the 10th of July, is the anniversary of the famous horse back ride through the streets of Coventry by the naked and brave Lady Godiva.

Who was the beautiful lady of John Collier 19th century painting and did she actually ride through Coventry's town centre in the nude? 

The rest of Lady Godiva's story can be found on my website, Meandering Through Time.

  1. I used to live in Coventry and they're quite proud of her in spite of the lack of proof that she did her noble deed. (Doesn't stop Nottingham bragging about Robin Hood either....)
