As you probably already know, the Ender Dragon hatched from an egg. But did you know that the Ender Dragons are an almost extinct race? There used to be thousands of these dragons freely roaming the end. But the Minecraft legend [a Minecraft website made by Notch (the creator of Minecraft)] tells us that when Herobrine (an evil Minecraft super villain) invadved the end trying to destroy it, nearly killed them all off. Naturally, the Ender Dragons fought back. Or they tried to. They had never seen any mobs aside from Endermen, which never attacked them, so they had no need for defense. Thankfully, one Ender Dragon family was able to fight back against Herobrines army. This family had 20 eggs, and only one survived. The egg lied in the ruins of the cave until an Enderman family found it. They took the egg into their care and persuaded their leader into letting it hatch. When the egg did hatch the leader gave up his crown to the Ender Dragon. And the best part is that the Endermen are under the protection from the Ender Dragon from their kindness, and the Ender Dragon protects them. Just like a family would.
