Behind every successful man,
There is an excellent woman.
In fact, behind those beautiful paintings,
There are also stories that cannot be explained.

The first time I saw this picture,
Attracted by her beauty.
Like many people,
We only see the gorgeous women on horseback.
A large red tone.
No reason to think about its creation.
Later I heard the story of “she”, and I was very respectful.

Around 1040.
Earl Leigh AF Rick of Coventry, England, married Godava.

But he was unhappy all day.
The count looked in his eyes and hurt his heart.
One day, he finally could not help asking her:
“Why are you so melancholy, aren’t the servants treated you?”

Gudwa shook his head and said,
“The servants treated me very well.
The faces of the people here are full of resentment.
Where can I be happy?
Count:
“You worry about a bunch of untouchables.
It’s really out of order. ”
Gudwa asked:
“But they couldn’t go on.
Can you relieve them a little bit of tax? “

In order to support the British army, the count went on duty.
The public ordered a heavy tax, and the public complained about it.
The two men quarrel with each other.
The count said firmly.
“I am the Minister of the imperial court, and should be divided for the state.”
Mrs. gdawa was tit for tat:
“You have squeezed enough from them.
Let’s let them go this time. ”
The count said in a frantic manner:
“Let them go.
Unless you are riding naked on the street in the city,
I will declare a tax cut. “

This is a typical attempt to raise non essential requirements.
To suppress the requestor’s routine.
In the count’s view,
Such a well cultured lady, Mrs.
It’s a wild tale to ask her to go naked.
Since she can’t promise, she can’t bother him any more.
But this is the turning point of the story.
Mrs. gredawa actually agreed and announced the whole town.

On the morning of the second day, lady gdawa took off her robe safely.
Ride the horse naked and leave the official residence.

The count tried to stop, but he did not dare to speak.
She had to ride on her horse and follow her.
Lady glewa was riding naked on her horse.
We can only rely on a long hair shield to make a big circle in the street.
All the people are as well discussed as before.
Always close doors and windows and close the curtains.
The vast city of Coventry has become a silent and empty city.
Riding around the whole city,
Only one tailor, Tom, violated the “public agreement”.
A small hole was cut through the window.
Trying to spy on Mrs. gdawa.

The count was deeply moved after that.
He hugged his wife and asked,
“How do you know they deserve your risk?”
Lady gdawa smiled.
“If you really want to help others,
We should not think about how others will repay themselves.
Isn’t it? ”
The count nodded and announced the tax cuts all over the city.

Many years later, the famous British painter John Collier heard about it, and then painted the oil painting “Lady godiva on horseback”.
Collier: “The true nobility is to be brave when you know in your heart that you ought to help others, not to think too much about whether others will be grateful for it, not to change their original intention because of the response of others.”
