What is Lady Godiva famous for?

Lady Godiva, a noblewoman of Anglo-Saxon England in eleventh century England, famously rode naked on horseback through Coventry proclaiming people should make peace with their spouses. Shortly after her death it became clear that Lady Godiva was actually a composite character made up of two women from different areas with different circumstances. According to the story as told in 'a life called Peterborough', it's not very likely that she would have ridden naked during her protest.
