Today is the feast day of St. George who is almost always shown killing a dragon in order to save a beautiful lady. He was born c.280 in Turkey. St. George became a Roman soldier and was furious that Christians were being put to death. He fought for his faith and was beheaded on April 23, 303.
The legend of St. George and the dragon began in the 13th century.
