ST. GEORGE AND THE DRAGON. THE REAL HISTORY

Escrito por english4life 18-04-2017 en FIFTH COURSE. Comentarios (0)

Do you the history of St. George and the dragon?

Read the text and enjoy it.

St. George was born in Cappadocia – currently Turkey – and became a soldier after his father. He fought for the Roman Emperor Dioclecian.

St. George is famous for killing a dragon. He travelled to Lybia where he found a poor hermit.

The hermit told him that there was a dragon in that land and that villagers took him a young girl everyday as a sacrifice.

The poor hermit also told himk that the only girl alive was the king of Egypt´s daughter.

The king had promised that the knight who killed the dragon would marry the princess.

St. George rested in the hermit´s hut that night. The following morning he set off towards the dragon´s cave.

Armoured with his spear, sword and shield St. George called for the dragon.

When the dragon saw St. George he roared fiercely and swished his fifty-feet long tail.

St. George was not scared at all so he struck the dragon with his spear.

The dragon´s scales were extremely hard so the spear broke into pieces and St. George fell off his horse.

He took shelter under an enchanted orange tree. After a while St. George attacked the dragon with his sword and hurt him under one wing. The dragon bled out and died.

From the dragon´s blood a red rose blossomed . St. George gave it to the princess and asked her to marry him.

The Emperor Dioclecian persecuted Christians but St. George refused to do it. St. George was tortured and executed in Palestine on April 23rd, 303.

Nowadays St. George is the patron saint of England, Aragon and Catalonia.
