- Several Mythologies
It’s pretty hard to narrow down one, legitimate mythology that Dragons come from. They are all throughout Greek, Roman, and Norse Mythology. Some even claim it is referenced in some religious literature too. When we think of dragons, we’re likely thinking of flying creatures that appear like lizards in most of their notable features. They are usually massive in size and can shoot fire out of their mouths.
Essentially, we’re thinking about the very same dragons you see on Game of Thrones, for example. Dragons have become a major part of literature, especially revolving around a fantasy-driven plot. They were also heavily connected to the Medieval time period. Most nowadays feel that the legend began when people first came across large monitor lizards such as the Komodo Dragon. Their saliva is poisonous and their bite is horrific, if the saliva enters your bloodstream it burns heavily. Thus, the fire-breathing concept with other fantasy elements thrown in.
