St. George and the Dragon / Egorii / Iurii / Georgii

Region: North Africa Time Period: 3rd and 4th Century AD References in Literature: The Faerie Queen by Edmund Spenser Sources: Everyone - He's very popular

The story generally begins with:


After growing up in Cappadocia (eastern Turkey) and becoming a soldier in the Roman army, George was converted to Christianity. He started traveling across the land spreading the word of God. He became one of the seven great champions of the Christian world. Upon arriving in Silene in Libya he came across a princess bound to a stake awaiting the arrival of the most feared creature in the land, the dragon. The dragon, a huge, winged, tailed, olive-green scaled beast, had emerged from

the swamps near Silene many months before. It was a huge monster, with batlike wings, menacing claws, and from its snout came flame and smoke. It had attacked the land with its poisonous breath, a poison so strong it killed everything it enveloped . Trying to stop the dragon the farmers in the area started feeding it two sheep a day. This kept the dragon at bay until they had run out of sheep. To stop the dragon destroying the rest of the land, the King of Silene had decreed to sacrifice one child a day to the dragon, in the hopes that someone or something would help his country defeat this almighty beast. It was the morning on which the king had been forced to sacrifice his own child, the princess Sabra, when George arrived. George goes down to the lake with the princess. Version 1: The dragon was the corporeal manifestation of evil and embodies everything that George pledged to confront and conquer, and George prepared for battle. During the confrontation George became hypnotized by the dragon's eyes which glowed and dazzled him. George, confused by those eyes, drew back his lance and plunged it into the centre of those unblinking orbs. The terrible scream that came from the dragon told George that the battle was over and that he was victorious. After beheading the dragon, he bid farewell to the people of Silene and rode away, shortly to become a Christian martyr. It was many centuries later, during the crusades, that he was adopted as the patron saint of England.

George stays in the palace.


George killed the Dragon, except the daughter of the king and the people. By the time that the King was offered to stay in your kingdom and be a defender of the palace.
