- Rider(s):Saint George
Saint George, patron saint of England, of Moscow and of Cáceres in Spain, was an early Christian martyr, who during the Middle Ages became a paragon of valour and selflessness.
Nothing of his life or deeds can be established, but legends about him as a warrior saint became popular, such as the story of his rescuing a Libyan king’s daughter from a dragon and then slaying the monster in return for the king’s subjects promising to be baptized.
