Godiva's Crown (sometimes erroneously known as Godiva or Lady Godiva) is an engineering student who has been chosen to represent the spirit of [[Lady Godiva]] at Skule™. They are selected during a [[Godiva Week]] competition in which they must perform a creative act in front of a panel of (mostly) male judges and the reigning Godiva's Crown. Godiva's Crown holds Princess, the ceremonial wooden horse, as well as the signature Crown for the year. They are present at many Skule™ events to improve Skule™ spirit.

The Crown worn by Godiva's Crown is a unique hardhat, from which a distinctive crown shape is carved, with the sides of the crown emblazoned with the suit representing the year (i.e. the ''Queen of Hearts'' or the ''Queen of Clubs''). The 'suit' for each Godiva's Crown rotates each year in a four-year cycle.

The judging panel usually consists of seven judges - six engineering students (mostly male, which must include exactly one F!rosh) and the reigning Godiva's Crown (who is the head judge). The judges are generally chosen by the reigning Godiva's Crown or organizers of the event, and is decided by their (humourous) responses to a series of questions.

The judges congregate in a secret location following the last act, and vote for the next Godiva's Crown. Following the decision, the reigning Godiva's Crown announces awards for each of the contestants, and the winner of the title. The new Godiva's Crown then takes the Oath, and is presented with the Godiva's Crown hardhat, the Godiva sashes, the ceremonial horse, and the flags for the Blue & Gold Bed Races.
