King Hrothgar built an awesome castle for himself and his men to party in, and for the King to bestow gifts upon his men. The king was a happy festive man who wanted to be left alone with his men to drink and party. Their partying and laughter could be heard throughout the night.
The joyous laughter and drunken nights were short lived by the King and his merry men. Unbeknownst to the King, deep within the swamp outside the great hall lived Grendel. Grendel listened to the laughter of the King and his men night after night and grew green jealousy at each nights pass.
As the nights passed and the joyous merriments continue, Grendel grew weary of listening to them and jealous of all the King had. Grendel decided the noise created by the King and his merry men was too much for him to contend with.
Night after night Grendel would sneak into the great hall and carry off and feast one of the drunken men. King Hrothgar and his Danes were no match for the fearsome Grendel. Soon the laughter died in the joyous hall only to be replaced with sadness. For twelve years the King and his men lived in fear.
A A hero in the making who lived a day’s voyage away heard about the good king’s sorrow and the plight of his band of once merry men. Enter Beowulf and his 14 companions here to save good king Hrothgar from Grendel. When Grendel comes he finds Beowulf and his warriors sleeping in the hall.
Grendel kills a warrior and then fights with Beowulf. Beowulf wounds Grendel who runs back to his lair. Joy returns to the great hall once again, until that night when Grendel’s mother comes and carries off one of the kings men. This time Beowulf follows her to her lair, and sees a dead Grendel. Beowulf fights and kills the mother and returns to the hall with Grendel’s head. Once again joy has return to the hall, and king has his merry men back.
