What are the best children's books on St George and the Dragon?
Are there some good versions of the story suitable for using in a primary classroom? In fact, the Saint George, on whom all the mythology is founded, was not born in England and is celebrated and appropriated in countries and cities around the world! His claim to the title of patron saint of England came from his legendary status. George but was born in AD in Turkey or Palestine, according to the most reliable sources — and it was not until that St George was adopted as the sole patron saint of England. He never was a farmer instead, as a young man, Georgios served as an officer in the Roman army of the Emperor Diocletian and was killed for refusing to denounce Christianity which is why he was made a saint. The story of St George killing a dragon was a legend brought back from Asia by the Crusaders in the 12th century, long after the time that he lived.
