The Dragon Lady of France

The Dragon of France

According to French Dragon lore, the noble Lusignan family of France may have descended from the union of a count with Lady Melusine, who married him on condition that he didn’t spy on her bathing. The count violated her privacy, she morphed into a dragon and flew away, never to be sighted again.The city of Ljubljana has adopted dragons as a symbol as a result of the dynastic connection of its former ruling family with the Lusignan family of Melusine.
