  • Beginning
  • Beginning
  • Middle
  • King Gilgamesh was very mean to his people. He was 1/3 man and 2/3 god. Gilgamesh prayed to the gods, and answering his prayers, they created Enkidu.
  • Middle
  • A hunter spotted Enkidu 3 days in a row, so he took him to meet King Gilgamesh. At first, Enkidu and Gilgamesh did not like each other at all.
  • End
  • Then, after Gilgamesh challenged Enkidu to a fight, they became best friends. They killed Humbaba, the demon that guards the cedar forest, and The Bull of Heaven, who Ishtar used to try and destroy their city.
  •  End
  • But then, Enkidu got sick as a punishment from the gods for killing the bull. They forgave Gilgamesh because he was part god, but Enkidu was told he must die. 
  • Gilgamesh was very sad , and he realized he would have to die too, so he started searching for a way to become immortal. He found a couple who had been granted eternal life, but they said he would have to find a plant at the bottom of the ocean, but that got stolen by a snake.
  • Gilgamesh finally realized searching for eternal life was useless, because he could become immortal if he left behind a great civilization.
