Most Popular Dragons Of All Time
St George and The Dragon
St. George is Englands patron saint. According to the Christian hagiography, St. George (275303 AD) became a venerated Christian martyr after winning a battle against a dragon therefore saving thousands of lives. There are many versions of the story of St. George slaying the dragon but the most popular one goes like this its called saving the damsel in distress. A town that was terrorised by a dragon decided to appease him by offering a princess. St. George upon hearing the news marched towards the dragons lair and slayed him right across his wings (for the wigs were scaleless and vulnerable). Disney had made a feature film in 1941 based on the 1898 childrens storyThe Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame. This short story is often hailed as the prototype of most modern stories where the dragon is depicted as a sympathetic character than a threat.
