  • Please save us from Gilgamesh
  • This is a grape.
  • You'r a very good wrestler.
  • So are you.
  • Gilgamesh was the cruel and hateful king of Uruk. He mistreated the people of Uruk, so they prayed to their gods to be free of him.
  • The gods answered their prayers by creating Enkidu, Gilgamesh's double. Enkidu was raised by animals in the wild, then a goddess came to earth to tame him and show him the ways of civilized men.
  • When Gilgamesh and Enkidu met, they had a great wrestling match which ended in a tie because they were equally matched. They admired each other and became great friends. Enkidu and Gilgamesh went on many adventures.
  • Only gods can grant imortaily
  • Ishtar, the goddess of love and war, fell in love with Gilgamesh but he rejected her. Ishtar was mad and upset, so she sent the great bull of heaven to fight Gilgamesh and Enkidu.
  • Gilgamesh and Enkidu defeated the bull, but Enkidu was injured and Gilgamesh watched his friend die. Watching Enkidu die made him realize that he would also die.
  • Noooooooooo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Gilgamesh went to ask Utnapishtim, the only man to have achieved immortality, how to become immortal. Utnapishtim said that only gods could grant immortality, except for a plant at the bottom of the ocean. Gilgamesh got the plant, but then a snake ate it and became little again. Gilgamesh went back to Uruk knowing that he would die, but he was a wise and kind king.
