I've been researching Lady Godiva for a work of fiction I'm writing.
Many of the websites I've seen have said he was her father but I
think many said he could have been her father or brother... I'll try
and find some later when I get home and post the URLs here. I'm sure
it doesn't matter since nobody knows what her relation to him was -
these web sites were probably just guessing.
