It was a normal, common day for the Geats and the king of Herot, Hrothgar. The kingdom had experienced a long time of happiness and peace.
Life is wonderful!
However, in just one night all peace was disrupted when Grendel, a devious monster, silently entered Herot Hall and murdered more than thirty Geats.
We never imagined this would happen! We need help!
Due to the lack of King Hrothgar's courage, Herot was in desperate need of a savior that could defeat Grendel. A brave knight named Beowulf decided to battle the creature and eventually defeated it.
I will fight you with my bare hands and succeed!
After his victorious win, Beowulf's abilities were put to test when Grendel's grieving mother looked to avenge his death. After a lot of obstacles, Beowulf yet again managed to prove himself and heroically defeated her.
I will do whatever it takes to defeat you, no matter how hard it will be!
Many years later, an old and weakened Beowulf was compelled to face one last battle. A vicious dragon was determined to take away all his glory along with his life. Nonetheless, the end of the battle resulted in the death of both.
I would rather die fighting than back down! I accept my fate.
Even though Beowulf died in the battle with the dragon, his memory was forever remembered and appreciated by the Geats. Beowulf will forever be their savior in times of need.
Rest in peace, Beowulf.
This statue will always remind us of your bravery, courage, and loyalty.
