By the end of the battle, Beowulf had sliced Grendle's mother's neck and she died. As Grendle sneaks around the corner to watch, Beowulf sees him and decapitates him. The danes had lost their hope. Another banquet was held for Beowulf. Beowulf receives an award of 12 treasures.
There is a dragon that lurks beneath earth. He finds out one day that someone has stolen his precious goblet. The dragon decides to take it out on Beowulf's village and throne hall even though Beowulf did nothing.
Beowulf gathers 11 men to roam around the village. Soon after, they discovered who the thieve of the goblet was. There was a fight to be planned later. He has a final talk to his men and then the fight begins shortly after the dragon and Beo exchange greetings.
The battle begins and Beowulf starts off the battle by slicing the dragon in the head with his sword Naegling but it sadly breaks. In return the dragon bites Beowulf on the neck but in return Beowulf whips out his knife and makes a fatal blow in the dragon.
Wiglaf realizes that the bite is venomous. He brings treasures to Beo to realize what sacrifice he has made for his village and what happiness he should feel. Beo dies shortly after.
Wiglaf and all of Beowulfs' close ones are in disbelief of his death. The geats come over to Beo's body and they also discover the corpse of the dragon. It's body was thrown into a river and Beo's corpse remains on the top of a cliff that is visible to all ships passing. The people reflected on Beowulf has a generous soul to all people and a fair minded lord.
