There is every reason to believe that St George was a brave martyr who was victorious over the devil. A man with-out fear, he was a solider in the army of the Roman Empire Diocletian. He gave up his position because the emperor was killing every Christian. St George was then tortured and then suffered martyrdom at Lydda in Palestine, probably before the time of Constantine. He showed bravery and died a solider of Christ. St George is the patron saint of England.
