The Legend of Lady Godiva

When Lady Godiva, wife of Lord Leofric, protested against the taxation of his subjects a deal was struck: Lady Godiva would ride through the streets of Coventry, “clad in naught but her long tresses”, and if the population remained in shuttered building, their tax burden would be lifted. The following morning she made her famous ride, the citizens graciously stayed inside and Leofric kept his word and reduced the taxes. Lady Godiva won the hearts of many and her legend has continued to deepen throughout the centuries. Nowhere is her passion, purity, sensuality, style and boldness more symbolised than in a tantalising box of Godiva chocolates which in turn are sure to win the hearts of all those who taste them.
