My ancestor, "Lady Godiva" of 1898 by John Collier, Pre-Raphaelite School. A major English mythological tale which depicts the naked wife of Earl Leofric of Mercia riding through Coventry to protest an unfair tax.

Lady Godiva, was an 11th-century Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who, according to legend, rode naked through the streets of Coventry in order to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation imposed by her husband on his tenants. The name "Peeping Tom" for a voyeur originates from later versions of this legend in which a man named Tom had watched her ride and was struck blind or dead.
