Red Dragon was a magazine founded by Charles Wilkins in 1882, as a monthly periodical. It was an English language periodical, which was mostly aimed at the people of South Wales. It published articles on the history of Wales (emphasising the recent history of the country), biographies, poetry and serial novels. It became a historical periodical during its last two years, with a notes and questions section which filled the majority of the periodical. Yet The Red Dragon was the first English-language periodical which attempted to create a cultured Welsh audience.[1]
