The Story of St. Valentine St Valentine was a Christian priest who lived in 270 A.D. At that time, the Roman government controlled much of the World. The Roman government needed many soldiers to protect its lands. The Emperor Claudius II decided that married men did not make good soldiers because they wanted to stay at home with their wives and children. He made a very strange law that said young men were not allowed to marry. He also said that any priest who married a young couple would be put to death. A priest named Valentine disobeyed the Emperor. He secretly married many young couples. When the Emperor found it out, he had Valentine imprisoned. Since Valentine had helped lovers, the day he died became a day for people to express love for others.
