The legend of Sant Jordi - Page Text Content

BC: made to : Nuria Sanchez Maria Vives Alexander Skalatskiy | THE END


1: A long time ago there was a dragon that killed and ate persons. The people from the village decided to give him two sheep every day; when they didn't have sheep then they gave him cows, and all animals they had, but one day they didn't have any animal.

3: Finally, the king decided to draw lots and then they'd give the dragon a person every day. One day the name of the king's daughter appeared, and then the king said that he'd give all his money, half of the palace, etc. to the people if they didn't give the princess to the dragon. The people didn't agree, and then after 8 days the king left his daughter in a cave, near the dragon.

4: But suddenly, when the dragon was opening his mouth to eat her, the gentleman Sant Jordi appeared with his white horse to save the princess. Sant Jordi killed the dragon with a lance, the dragon fell and, from the blood of the dragon a rosebush appeared. Then Sant Jordi took the most beautiful rose and gave it to the princess to show his love.

6: The King asked Sant Jordi to marry his daughter and told him that he'd give him half his palace, but Sant Jordi, without saying anything, went away.

7: People were really calm because they didn't have to worry about the dragon any more.

8: That's why on 23rd of April the men give a rose to their loves and the girls give their men a book. Cervantes and Shakespeare are said to have died the same day of the same year (23rd of April 1616).That's also why we celebrate Sant Jordi this day.
