Peace was restored to the Danish land, so Beowulf returns home to his country of Geatland. Later, he is crowned king of his people. For fifty long years, he reigns as a strong and fearless ruler.
As the years go by, Beowulf advances in his years. All is well until a dragon appears. It menaces the kingdom of the mighty hero. Though old now, Beowulf swears he will face it.
Armed with the sword that killed Grendel's mother, Beowulf marches his army to the tower of the dragon. Spotting the band of warriors, the dragon awakes. The battle begins, but Beowulf's sword breaks. The dragon is too mighty for the weapon. What will Beowulf do?
The Geat king is doomed! All of his soldiers flee. But one courageous young warrior raises his sword to aid his king. His name is Wiglaf, son of Wexstan, who understands Beowulf's sacrifice. He risked his life to save others. Now someone must save him.
Finishing off the beast, Beowulf collapses in pain. He is mortally wounded, but commands Wiglaf to retrieve his reward. The boy fills his arms with treasures and jewels. He returns to his lord who grants him the throne. Then, King Beowulf breathes his last.
Geatland mourns the death of their beloved leader. He is built a tomb near the waters edge. Sailors from all nations will look upon his tomb and remember the name of the mighty Geat ruler. His sacrifice for Geatland will not soon be forgotten.
