This storyboard does not have a description.
Unfortunately, Beowulf was told by Hrothgar that Grendel's mother had killed his best friend and told him about their lair. Then Beowulf made up his mind to go and slay the "she-wolf." She scratched him, but luckily his mail shirt saved him. Beowuld was also unable to hurt Grendel's mother with his sword, but he then found a sword made for giants and used it to cut through her neck.
It took a while for Beowulf to kill the devil creature, in fact some of the Danes gave up. Beowulf's men remained faithful and when he returned with the head of Grendel they all rejoiced carrying the hero and his trophy back to Herot where Beowulf presented it to Hrothgar.
Beowulf and his men returned home after being praised by Hrothgar and the Danes, and Beowulf was eventually made King of Geatland.
After being king for about fifty years Beowulf was much older, but he still looked to seek fame by attacking a dragon hiding in his towers. Beowulf thought he could take the dragon, but his arrogance was his demise. Luckily, a brave Geat named Wiglaf came by the side of his king and defeated the dragon with Beowulf.
Beowulf was still injured severely injured, and while on his deathbed he gave Wiglaf a ring making him the next heir to the throne. Then as Beowulf had requested the Geats built a monument to remember him with his ashes burried in it.
