Beowulf was a brave and courageous hero his whole life, taking immense risks to save other people and their kingdoms.
When the dragon attacked the area, Beowulf did what he always did. Though age had slowed him down, he went to the dragon’s lair to slay the massive beast. He fought hard and long, but his stamina was not like it was when he was young. He was not only fighting the mighty dragon, he was also fighting another foe, Death.
As Beowulf fought the strong and towering beast, Death would not loosen its grip on him as it did in the past; it held tighter and stood firm. His strength was failing him, something that had not happened before. He knew that death would win this round and that he would need help to conquer the other fierce opponent, the dragon. This meant that he would need to let go of his pride and share the victory with another brave warrior.
Wiglaf was the only brave and courageous warrior that would come to help him kill the ferocious dragon. He was the one who avenged Beowulf and gave the fatal thrust that killed the dragon. But he was too late to save the hero, his leader and cousin, from the grasp that death had on him.
Beowulf, flushed from fighting long and hard, was laying at death's tragic door. He asked Wiglaf to bring him some of the abundant treasure the dragon had accumulated, so that he could see it before death could take his life. Wiglaf haltingly, not wanting to leave his friend alone, entered the dragon’s lair and found the treasure that the dragon had stolen over time.
And so a beloved and courageous leader died the way he lived for so many years, fighting a mighty foe. He died knowing that he added to his realm more treasure. Wiglaf, his chosen replacement, could use the treasure for their people
