Beowulf goes to Hrothgar, whom he greets solemnly. Beowulf recounts some of his past glories and offers to fight Grendel unarmed. Hrothgar recounts a feud during which Beowulf’s father killed Heatholaf, a member of the Wulfing tribe.
Beowulf's father kills his enemy, Heatholaf, from the Wulfing Tribe.
VICTORY! I killed you Heatholaf.
Dont kill Ectheow. I will pay Wergild and end the feud.
Hrothgar sends the Wergild to the Wulfings to mend the feud.
we will kill Ecgtheow for killing one of our own.
Beowulf's father pledged his allegiance to Hrothgar. Hrothgar then accepts Beowulf's offer to fight Grendel.
Hrothgar, thank you for paying wergild and ending the feud. I pledge my allegience to you
