THE MEDIEVAL DRAGON Dragons came to be seen as symbolic for a connection to the natural world. In medieval symbolism, dragons were often symbolic of apostasy and treachery, but also served as symbols for independence, leadership, strength and protection. Many dragons also represent wisdom; slaying a dragon not only gave access to its treasure hoard, but meant the hero had bested the most cunning of all creatures. In some cultures, especially Chinese, or around the Himalayas, dragons are considered to represent good luck. Dragons have been described as powerful non-human beings that have become infamous in vast numbers of legends and fictional stories past and present.
