Legend has it that the story of Valentine's Day began in the ancient days of the 3rd century in Rome. It is the era of the Roman Empire, a time when the Romans persecuted Christians.
The then Emperor, Claudius II, forbade soldiers to get engaged to women. He believed that married men would rather stay with their wives than go to war. The majority of the population accepted this, except for the priest Valentin. Despite the emperor's order, he secretly married young couples in love.
