History

Red sv. Jurija - Evropski red hiše Habsburg-Lothringen - St. Georgs‒Orden

St. George was a military tribune within the Roman army under Diocletian ("Knight of Cappadocia"), who he rebelled against when the Emperor ordered the arrests of all Christian legionaries.


According to a legend of the Crusades, the dragon wove a nest at the wellspring supplying the city of Selena. If the citizens wanted to get some water, they needed to outwit it and entice it somewhere else with a sacrificial lamb and if they had no lamb, they sacrified a virgin.

Today a knight is generally imagined as an armored equestrian, usually armed with a spear and sword, as serving his master in the Middle Ages, receiving in turn an estate with serfs for his living and the purchasing of armoury that was very expensive in those times. Not everyone could afford weapons and especially not a horse.


In the European Middle Ages triple allegiance was typical for a knight: serving his master, the Christian God (he was a soldier of Christ), and a chosen lady.
