About Bistern Dragon

An Old English document in the sixteenth century reports that n Hampshire, England, a man named Sir Moris Berkeley met with a terrifying dragon in the countryside. This dragon had been killing all that tried to remove it and was also generally causing destruction to the area.

Sir Moris met with the dragon, along with his dogs, and heroically slew the beast. Unfortunately, he and his dogs were also killed with it. But, the Berkeley family's coat of arms was changed to glorify the event. [1]
