While the likes of Robin Hood and the Pied Piper cannot be directly verified in the written record of England or Germany as having existed, Lady Godiva was very much a real person. She lived in 11th-century Anglo-Saxon England. She was a noblewoman and wife of Leofric, Earl of Mercia. Lady Godiva and her husband were active patrons to various churches and monasteries in England at this time, but she is famously remembered for the legend surrounding her protest of taxes imposed on the people by her own husband.

Obverse

In the obverse design of 1 oz Copper Medieval Legends Lady Godiva Round, the namesake figure is shown in a replica of her daring protest. As her husband raised taxes on his tenants to an oppressive level, Lady Godiva decided to showcase her displeasure for the tax by riding through the center of Coventry in the nude on horseback. Her long hair was the only thing to offer her cover, which strategically covered her body as she made her way through the city.

Reverse

For the reverse design of the Copper Medieval Legends Lady Godiva Round, you will find the common design element of the series. This visual shows a table in the room of a Medieval castle. On the table, there are several relics scattered, each one providing a hint of the figures that have featured and will feature in the Medieval Legends Series.

History

Lady Godivas infamous nude ride through Coventry isnt the only legend to arise from this tale. It is alleged that the term Peeping Tom resulted from her ride. Later versions of her legend tell of a man named Thomas who was so mesmerized by her beauty that he stopped and watched her ride through Coventry. Legends state that he was struck blind or even dead as a result of his peeping.
