Tiamat, Mother of Babylonian Dragons ~  In Mesopotamian Religion (Sumerian, Assyrian, Akkadian and Babylonian), Tiamat is a chaos monster, a primordial goddess of the ocean, mating with Abzû (the god of fresh water) to produce younger gods. It is suggested that there are two parts to the Tiamat mythos, the first in which Tiamat is 'creatrix', through a "Sacred marriage" between salt and fresh water, peacefully creating the cosmos through successive generations. In the second "Chaoskampf" Tiamat is considered the monstrous embodiment of primordial chaos.[1] Although there are no early precedents for it, some sources identify her with ima...
Sirrush, Babylonian Dragon God ~  The celestial Dragon of Babylonian and Mesopotamian myth. It had the body of a Dragon but the lower-half of a serpent which ended with a poisonous sting on the end. Its forelegs where like those of a lion but its hind legs were like that of an eagle. It had spike along the under side of it neck running down until the body. It also had horns protruding out from its head. It was the guardian of the Ishtar Gate. He is known as ‘Furious Snake’ and is one of the eleven creatures born from the goddess Tiamat. Together the monsters tried to overcome Marduk but they were all defeated. Sorcerers call upon the powers of Tiamat to summon...
The Suzerian of Egypt, Khaldun the Blue Dragon God ~  The Blue Dragon Khaldun (his name meaning "The Immortal One" in Egyptian) holds court at Thebes as Suzerain (or Pharaoh) of Upper and Lower Egypt. 

After the collapse of the Old Kingdom, Egypt entered a period of weak Pharaonic power and decentralization. Towards the end of this period, two rival dynasties, fought for power over the entire country. It was by then that Khaldun made his appearance. The Ancient Blue Dragon who had been living in the desert saw the quarreling kingdom an easy target, ripe for plunder. However when he arrived in Thebes he received a completely different welcome then ex...

Western Green Dragon ~ Dragons have a rich heritage in the mythology and symbolism of Western culture.

 Western dragons have traditionally been a symbol of evil. A typical Western dragon can fly and breathe fire. Many legends describe dragons as greedy, keeping hordes of gold and other precious treasure. In myths and folklore, dragons were monsters to be conquered. As dragons may be seen to represent the dark side of humanity, including greed, lust, and violence, the conquest of a dragon represents the confrontation and extinguishment of those evil instincts. And yet there are many stories of dragons doing good deeds or even being outsmarted by humans

Welsh Red & White Dragons ~  Historia Brittonum

The tale is taken up in the Historia Brittonum. The dragons remain at Dinas Emrys for centuries until King Vortigern tries to build a castle there. Every night the castle walls and foundations are demolished by unseen forces. Vortigern consults his advisers, who tell him to find a boy with no natural father, and sacrifice him. Vortigern finds such a boy (who is later, in some tellings, to become Merlin) who is supposed to be the wisest wizard ever to live. On hearing that he is to be put to death to end the demolition of the walls, the boy is dismissive of the advice, and tells the king about the two dragons. ...

Roman Dragon ~  Roman Dragons:

 The Romans do not have dragons unique to them. Their dragons are based on stories from Greek mythology that they expanded on and changed the names to Roman names. Roman dragons combine the serpentine Greek dragons with the dragons of the Near East to give us a dragon that is closer to what we imagine a European dragon to be with a long body, four clawed feet and crests upon their heads.

 The Roman naturalist, Pliny the Elder wrote about dragons in his encyclopedia Naturalis Historia. In book eight, he talks about reptiles such as the crocodile and serpent, ruling these out as possibly being the dragon. He writes about drag...
Persian Yellow Dragon ~  In his famous epic the Shah Nameh, translated by Atkinson, Firdausi describes the wondrous adventures of the Persian hero Rustem, who like Hercules had to perform seven labours. At the third stage of this task he was alone in a wilderness with his magical horse Rakush, and lay down to sleep at night, after turning the horse loose to graze. Presently a great dragon came out of the forest. “It was eighty yards in length, and so fierce that neither elephant nor demon nor lion ever ventured to pass by its lair.” As it came forth it saw and attacked the horse, whose resistance awakened Rustem; but when Rustem looked around nothing was visib...
Persian Fire Dragon ~  A hero of popular legend woven into his history by Firdausi was Isfendiar (son of King Gushtask, himself a dragon-killer), who also had to perform seven labours, the second of which was to fight an enormous and venomous dragon such as this: 

 Fire sparkles round him; his stupendous bulk
 Looks like a mountain. When incensed his roar
 Makes the surrounding country shake with fear,
 White poison foam drips from his hideous jaws,
 Which, yawning wide, display a dismal gulf,
 The grave of many a hapless being, lost
 Wandering amidst that trackless wilderness. 

 Isfendiar’s companion, Kurugsar, so magnified the power and ferocity ...
Persian Peacock Dragon ~  Eglė the Queen of Serpents:
 A Lithuanian folk tale, also known as Eglė the Queen of Grass Snakes
 Once upon a time, there lived an old man and his wife. Together, they had twelve sons and three daughters. The youngest girl was named Eglė. On a warm summer evening, all three girls decided to go swimming. After bathing with her two sisters, Eglė discovered a serpent in the sleeve of her blouse.

 The eldest girl grabbed Eglė's blouse, threw it down, and jumped on it, but the serpent did not leave. Turning to the youngest, Eglė, the serpent spoke to her in a man's voice, saying, "Eglė, promise to become my bride, and I w...
