Ancient Calendar: Lady Godiva & more: July 10, 2010

My grandmother once told me that in order to get the attention of a man, and to get him to rethink something his mind seems permanently fixed on…a woman has to do drastic things.

Let Lady Godiva shed light to that.

Most people think she was simply a famous painting, which I will show shortly, but she was much more than that. An actual person, she was married to a man named Leofric III, who was known as the Earl of Mercia AND the Lord of Coventry. Having pleaded with her husband many times, Lady Godiva on this day in Ancient History during the year of 1045 CE decided to do exactly what my Grandmother advised all women to do….take matters into her own hands and do something drastic.

Stripping down to absolutely nothing, Lady Godiva rode through the village in a desperate plea (or awakening) to persuade her husband to lower the taxes on all those living there.

Now some sources claimed that Lady Godiva had tried very hard to convince her husband before this, and that her ride was done so after he made a sarcastic remark such as, "I will lower the taxes only after you ride through the village naked." If that were the case, he had to eat his words, didn’t he?

Some sources also claim that Lady Godiva did not do this as a shock to everyone. That she ordered the villagers to remain indoors and to not look outside. Other sources claim that she did this in full view, where all could see her, as her two female lady attendants rode along side of her—with their clothes on that is.

In the end, despite how it came about or how it came to be, the taxes were lowered.

Saturday is a good day to deal with matters and or invoke magical spells concerning:

A Gift of some sort, and or maybe something to do with your property?

Are you moving your home? Is someone else moving their home? Do you have matters concerning the elderly and or maybe you need to work on self discipline?

Remember that Saturday belongs to Saturn and the Element of Earth.

One thought on “Ancient Calendar: Lady Godiva & more: July 10, 2010”

  1. The year 1075 AD does NOT count as ‘ancient’ history. It is Medieval. ‘Ancient’ is anything before c400, but more likely any date BC (or BCE).
    I hate it when people refer to the Medieval period as ‘ancient history’ it is not.
