St George is the Patron Saint of England, and there are some notable facts about George how can make this change. George was a favorite patron saint of crusaders, as well as of Eastern soldiers in earlier times.

Lets know more about St George Life story to Patron Saint.

Saint George was born to an upper-class Christian family, before he become a Roman soldier. When his father died, he and his mother returned to Palestine, and he decided to join the retinue of Diocletian, the Roman Emperor at the time.

He earned his reputation as a protector of Christianity after he refused orders from Diocletian to persecute followers of the religion at the start of the 4th century. He then resigned.

And despite being cruelly tortured at the order of the emperor, Saint George refused to denounce his faith. His actions saw him dragged through the streets of Diospolis (now Lydda) in Palestine and beheaded.

The martyrdom retold in Saint George's legend appears to be historically accurate, as he is believed to have died in 303 AD.

King Edward III made him the Patron Saint of England when he formed the Order of the Garter in St. George's name in 1350, and the cult of the Saint was further advanced by King Henry V, at the battle of Agincourt in northern France.
