Manuel de Godoy y Álvarez de Faria (May 12, 1767 – October 7, 1851) was Prime Minister of Spain from 1792 to 1797 and from 1801 to 1808. He received many titles, including Prince of the Peace (Príncipe de la Paz) by which he is widely known. The painting La maja desnuda by Francisco de Goya, which depicts a fully nude reclining woman, was once in Godoy's personal collection. It is believed by many to portray Pepita Tudó.
