In English folklore, St. George slew the mighty dragon.
According to legend, a pagan town in Libya was being terrorized by a dragon. The
locals kept throwing sheep to it to placate it, and when it still remained
unsatisfied, they started sacrificing some of the citizenry. Finally, the local
princess, Cleolinda, daughter of the King, was to be thrown also to the beast,
but good St. George came along, slaughtered the dragon and rescued the fair
princess. At this, the townsfolk converted to Christianity. Some experts think
the tale is based on the Greek myth of Perseus rescuing Andromeda from a sea
