Godiva (Old English: Godgifu, god gift), often referred to as Lady Godiva (fl. 1040–1080), was an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who, according to legend, rode naked through the streets of Coventry, in England, 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.
