Chocolate candies are always the most reliable historical sources.
Incidentally, you have no idea how hard it is to find pictures of this that are safe for work.
Everyone knows about Lady Godiva’s famous ride. Her evil husband’s challenge that if she cared about the people of the city so much, he’d lower the taxes – if she’d ride though the city naked at high noon. Of course, never being one to turn down a dare, she did just so, and the one person who peeked during her au natural ride (Peeping Tom) was struck blind. And then her evil husband was forced to lower taxes, and Lady Godiva went on to found a great chocolate empire with Godiva Chocolates.
Ok, most people don’t actually believe that last part. But I have heard people say it. Frankly, it sounds pretty awesome.
So, what’s to not get right? Evil husband, brave woman, struck blind man, chocolate… Just how much of it is history and how much of it is mythtory?
