Lady Godiva, Myth and Reality 

 

According to the popular story, Lady Godiva took pity on the people of Coventry, who were suffering grievously under her husband’s oppressive taxation. Lady Godiva appealed again and again to her husband, who obstinately refused to remit the tolls. At last, weary of her entreaties, he said he would grant her request if she would strip naked and ride through the streets of the town. Lady Godiva took him at his word and, after issuing a proclamation that all persons should stay indoors and shut their windows, she rode through the town, clothed only in her long hair. Only one person in the town, a tailor ever afterwards known as peeping Tom, disobeyed her proclamation in one of the most famous instances of voyeurism. In the story, Tom bores a hole in his shutters so that he might see Godiva pass, and is struck blind. In the end, Godiva’s husband keeps his word and abolishes the onerous taxes. Despite her strong association with Coventry, the real Lady Godiva was a powerful Anglo Saxon Landowner and counted Newark amoung her estates and it is for this reason that she is included in the Trent Miniatures Adventure range.  This mini range brings together a variety of historical figures that have been associated with the town of Newark in Nottinghamshire, England. The models have been designed by Master Sculptor, Mark Copplestone. There are ten Characters in the series for you to collect.

Both versions of the Lady Godiva are supplied, a naked model on horseback and a more virtous, clothed model.  Models are supplied unassembled and unpainted.

 

  Models are supplied unassembled and unpainted. Trent Miniatures is a well established Wargames Figure Company producing high quality 28mm miniatures.
