While St George’s exact birthdate remains unclear but is likely to be 270 AD, we know that he was born in Cappadocia, part of modern day Turkey.
Edward III, who reigned from 1327 to 1377 was influenced by the stories of returning crusaders telling of Saint George’s bravery.
So, when Edward founded the Order of the Garter, England’s order of knights, he made Saint George its patron.
By the 14th century Saint George was viewed as a special protector of the English.
