The Legend of The Dragon Slayer

Dragon Slayer uncovers the tenth-century legend of Guy of Warwick. Guy rose from humble beginnings here in Warwick and would go on to fall in love with Princess Felice, daughter of the Earl of Warwick.

The Earl believed Guy to be unworthy of his daughter’s hand in marriage and encouraged him to prove his worthiness through a series of challenges. Guy embarks on a treacherous quest to prove his courage to Felice and her father, fighting mythical beasts and battling fearsome warriors before he faces the Dragon.
