The tiger is the third sign of the twelve-year lunar calendar. People born under this sign are known for being confident, curious and intelligent. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is one of the well-known people born under the Year of the Tiger. According to legend, the Jade Emperor invited animals to race across a swift river, to determine their position in the zodiac. The confident Tiger was a likely contender to be winner, but kept getting swept downstream. Showing strength with those born under the sign, the Tiger finally made it to shore behind the Rat and the Ox. With this the Tiger became the third in the zodiac.
