it is a story about christionizing(sp?)(real word?)
you see, there was this dragon who kept eating all the people in this near by town, and the town had to sacrifice a beutifull woman to the dragon every day and the day came that they were forced to sacrifice the kings daughter, so st. george was going to go slay the dragon, but first george prayed to god for help and promised he would do something in return, so george somehow stabbed the dragon and recued the princess and brang the dragon into the town, but somehow the dragon was still alive, so george promised that he would kill the dragon and end its evil only if the whole town promised to become christian, the king agreed and thus st. george choped off the dragons head!
(i personally love the ending )
you mean crocodile sir!-dude lanced a crocodile from horseback!-that does not a hero make!
Whatever the maiden fed dragon was, St. George broke his lance and broad sword on its scales then had to resort to his falchion striking from a counter quinte five parry still nicknamed "Saint George's Guard" to this day due to its execcively powerful reposte cut. This became a sort of architypical fight recounted by endless knights as genuine.
