    Default Valentine's - Legend 1


    One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome.

Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
