St George's Day: Where was St George from? Why is St George patron saint of England?

St George’s remains were taken to Lydda (now Lod, Israel), the homeland of his mother, following his death.

Tales of St George often centre on the story of St George’s fight with a dragon.

However, this story is thought to have circulated in the centuries following St George’s death, after tales of his courage spread across Europe.

St George’s Day is usually held on April 23, which is believed to be the date St George died on.
