Product Description

Lady Godiva, Countess of Mercia in England, was a noblewoman & subject of a controversial legend which has circulated since the 13th century.

Legend has it, that she took pity on the people of Coventry who were suffering under her husband’s oppressive taxation.  Growing tired of her incessant requests, he told her he would only comply if she rode naked through the streets.  What to do?  Accept the challenge, of course!

A simple, cost effective costume option for any historical or British themed event.  Although perhaps a tad cold in winter…

 

Did you know?

  • The term “peeping Tom” is said to originate from this story.  Before her ride, Lady Godiva is said to instruct her citizens to shut their windows & doors & stay inside, to avoid seeing her.  Young Tom however, couldn’t resist.  According to legend, he was subsequently struck blind.
