Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross

To see a fine lady upon a white horse

With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes

She shall have music wherever she goes

可以順便幫我翻譯一下這篇故事的背景論述

感恩

Update:

It is not certain who the lady in question was. The three main possibilities are Elizabeth I, Lady Godiva and Celia Fiennes, a 17th century noblewoman whose family lived at Broughton castle near Banbury. She was known for making many horseback rides through the English countryside after 1697.

Update 2:

There was indeed a big cross at Banbury but was destroyed in 1601 in a fit of Puritan zeal.

The bells on her toes refers to the 15th century fashion of attaching bells to the end of the pointed toes of each shoe.
