The basic story:
Town terrorised by evil fire-breathing dragon.
Dragon demands a beautiful maiden to eat every night or he burns the village to the ground.
George the Knight rides into town on his white horse, is very upset when her hears the story and goes off to kill the dragon.
First he tried with his wooden spear which didn't work It just breaks on the dragons armour like scales.
Undeterred he goes back with his sword and fight a gruesome battle until he kills the beast. (He just stabbs it to death - I think he blinds it by getting it in the eye or maybe under the chin or through the mouth - there are many different versions ofthe tale).
Moral of the story : courage, strength and determination.
Of course, this is how the Knight told the story. The dragon tells it a little differently...
because the villagers offered one maiden from the town to apieze the dragon and one day the...kings daughter i think... was offered and the king or the rich man (i cant remember) begged Gorge to save his daughter. Gorge stepped in, slayed the dragon, and saved the girl.
St. George was real. He was an early Christian martyr. He was a soldier in the Roman army and refused a direct order to persecute and kill Christians and to pay homage to pagan gods.. For this, he was tortured and beheaded. Some of his deeds are probably mythical or, at the very least, exaggerated. Dragons have never existed. Perhaps he did kill some animal that was threatening a town such as a crocodile, but it is unlikely he could have slayed a dragon.
