Here’s another dragon legend. This one is from Europe– England, I believe. It’s also from the Middle Ages.
Saint George is the story of a knight who rescued a princess by slaying the dragon that kidnapped her.. Basic dragon-slaying story, yes?
“A DREADFUL DRAGON LAY WASTE TO THE COUNTRYSIDE, TILL PERCHANCE A GOOD KNIGHT PASSED BY.
I SHALL HELP THEE IN THE NAME OF JESU CHRIST, SAID SIR GEORGE TO THE KING’S FAIR DAUGHTER.
VALIANT IN BATTLE, HE SMOTE THE FOUL BEAST, STRUCK A MORTAL BLOW, RESCUING THE PRINCESS AND SAVING HER PEOPLE.”
