Queen Lady Godiva Menu navigasi VideoQueen - Killer Queen (Lyrics) Godiva, Countess of Mercia, in Old English Godgifu, was an English noblewoman who, according to a legend dating at least to the 13th century, rode naked – covered only in her long hair – through the streets of Coventry to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation that her husband imposed on his tenants. Lady Godiva was an English noblewoman who lived during the 11th century AD. Although she belonged to the upper class, she had a reputation for being sympathetic towards the less fortunate and was known to have been a charitable person. It was due to her concern for the poor that the most famous legend about Lady Godiva arose. A notorious crime family known for feeding people to pigs is now making headlines for one mob boss’ son: Lady Godiva, a flamboyantly gay drag queen. Down in the Calabria region of Italy (the toe of the boot), the mafia family they know is ’Ndrangheta. Over time, the organized crime group has grown into one of the most powerful, fearsome families in both Italy and the world, often partnering with Colombian and Mexican cartels, as well as the New York-New Jersey mafia in the U.S. The original Lady Godiva was an 11th century noblewoman married to Leofric, the powerful Earl of Mercia and Lord of Coventry. As the story goes, Godiva was troubled by the crippling taxes Leofric. Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah! I'm floating around in ecstasy So don't stop me now d.
In Coventry councillors considered eliminating Godiva from the city's public identity. Each September Poretta marks the occasion of Lady Godiva's birthday by leading a local pageant focusing on world peace and unity known as The Godiva Sisters.
In August , the Godiva Sisters was performed in front of delegates from 69 countries attending the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children Biennial Conference held at the University of Warwick.
In the New Year Honours Porretta was appointed a Member of the Order of The British Empire for services to the city of Coventry community and tourism services.
The image of Lady Godiva on horseback is also the corporate symbol of the Coventry Building Society , appearing on letterheads, statements, passbooks and other documents.
In an arts project, "Godiva Awakes", involving a 10 metre tall puppet-version of Lady Godiva, powered by 50 bicycles, leading a procession from Coventry to London, was proposed by the independent company Imagineer productions best known locally for reviving the Coventry Mystery Plays and reimagining the Coventry Carnival as the Godiva Festival.
In some university engineering faculties, military engineering corps and other engineering organisations, Lady Godiva is regarded as a mascot and called the "Patron Saint of Engineers" or "Goddess of Engineering.
The practice migrated to North America through Canadian schools, such as the University of Toronto and McMaster University , which today hold an annual "Godiva Week" in January consisting of events intended to engender school spirit.
By the midth century, the practice of engineering organizations associating themselves with Lady Godiva was well established in the United States.
A particular tradition associated with this is that of drinking songs , which make reference to Lady Godiva, particularly Godiva's Hymn.
Historically, certain college organisations staged an annual "Godiva Ride" in which a naked female or a costumed male rode a horse across campus.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Reader dates the first Godiva procession to ,  but other sources date the first parade to , and on that year a lad from the household of James Swinnerton enacted the role of Lady Godiva.
The English Dictionary of National Biography D. Next, Thomas Pennant in Journey from Chester to London recounted: "[T]he curiosity of a certain taylor overcoming his fear, he took a single peep".
Additional legend proclaims that Peeping Tom was later struck blind as heavenly punishment, or that the townspeople took the matter in their own hands and blinded him.
While most alterations of the legend describe Godiva riding completely nude, there is much dispute as to the historical authenticity of this notion.
A more plausible rationale for the legend includes one based on the custom at the time for penitents to make a public procession in their shift , a sleeveless white garment similar to a slip today and one which was certainly considered "underwear" in Godiva's time.
If this were the case, Godiva might have actually traveled through town as a penitent in her shift, likely unshod and stripped of her jewellery which was the trademark of her upper class rank.
It would have been highly unusual to see a noblewoman present herself publicly in such an unadorned state, possibly bringing about the legend which would later be romanticized in folk history.
Some suggest that the nudity myth originated in Puritan propaganda designed to blacken the reputation of the notably pious Lady Godiva.
Chroniclers of the 11th and 12th Centuries mention Godiva as a respectable religious woman of some beauty and do not allude to nude excursions in public.
The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry maintains a permanent exhibition on the subject. The oldest painting was commissioned by the County of the City of Coventry in and produced by Adam van Noort , a refugee Flemish artist.
His painting depicts a "voluptuously displayed" Lady Godiva against the background of a "fantastical Italianate Coventry".
In addition the Gallery has collected many Victorian interpretations of the subject described by Marina Warner as "an oddly composed Landseer , a swooning Watts and a sumptuous Alfred Woolmer ".
John Collier 's Lady Godiva was bequeathed by social reformer Thomas Hancock Nunn. When he died in , the Pre-Raphaelite -style painting was offered to the Corporation of Hampstead.
He specified in his will that should his bequest be refused by Hampstead presumably on grounds of propriety the painting was then to be offered to Coventry.
The painting now hangs in the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum. American sculptor Anne Whitney created a marble sculpture of Lady Godiva, now in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, Texas.

The historical Godiva was known for her generosity to the church, and along with Leofric, she helped found a Benedictine monastery in Coventry. That story appears to have first cropped up some years after her death in a book by the English monk Roger of Wendover, who was known for stretching the truth in his writings.
