GODIVA歌帝梵巧克力的故事起源于欧洲Coventry（考文垂城）：Leofric（廖夫瑞克）伯爵向人民施行重税，伯爵善良美丽的妻子Godiva 夫人不忍见民生疾苦，遂求丈夫减收赋税。他们打赌如果Godiva 夫人赤裸身躯仅以长发遮体骑马环城一圈，假使整个考文垂城的人民都紧闭门窗不窥视，伯爵就减少赋税。翌日清晨，Godiva夫人赤身策马环城，而城中百姓则怀着敬意紧闭门窗，足不出户。Leofric伯爵的承诺最终兑现，而Godiva夫人的传奇故事则被无数人传诵至今。
When Lady Godiva, wife of Lord Leofric, protested
against the taxation of his subjects, she agreed to ride through the streets of
Coventry "clad in naught but her long tresses", and so long as the
residents remained in shuttered buildings their tax burden would be
lifted. The following morning she made
her famous ride and, despite being the ultimate temptation, the citizens
graciously remained indoors. Leofric
kept his word and reduced the taxes to the delight of his subjects, ensuring
Godiva's legendary status throughout the centuries.
