"The story of this 18th11th century english noblewoman is that her mean husband the Earl Leofric raised taxes on the townspeople of Coventry which Lady Godiva, and not surprisingly the locals, thought were too high. She badgered her husband and he conceded the exasperation if she rode to the town naked, assuming that she never would but she did. Because people don't like taxes even though that's how civilization is purchased, Lady Godiva's story lives on notably in the Godiva logo and popular songs. But while Lady Godiva was a real person and Coventry is a real town there's no record from her nude ride from the time it happened so we safely assume that the story is false."
