I wish there was a bit more explanation, though! Who killed a dragon, in Russian folklore? Is it St. George, as in the English myth (though George was actually Greek)? But that was with a sword, surely? Who killed a dragon with an arrow? That's assuming this section isn't completely random, and has no basis in history OR mythology!
Thank you. I'd missed that it was history and fantasy (although I got the Hobbit reference), and thought it was referencing an actual Russian legend. I know that would still be fantasy - but of a different kind, if it was a traditional national tale. I didn't know St. George is on the Moscow coat of arms, so thanks for that.
