It has been 12 years full of misery, full of attacks from the monster Grendel. He has taken away all the peace and happinness from Herot Hall.
Im going to make their lives miserable by coming here every night and killing anyone in my way.
Beowulf hears about Grendel's attack and travels all the way from the Geats land to save the Danes. Hrothgar, king of the Danes, accepts the help.
Dear King Hrothgaar, it's me, Beowulf. I heard about the attacks of the monster Grendel, and came here to fight him.
Thanks for being so brave. We really appreciate your help.
Beowulf waits for Grendel in Herot Hall to surprise and confront him. Beowulf waits until Grendel attacks another man, so he can see what is his strategy.
I'm going to hold on to you until I rip your arm out!
I am stronger than you, and I will kill you! No one will ever stop me!
Killing this creature wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. If it wasn't for that giant's sword I would be dead.
Hrothgar sends Beowulf to fight Grendel's mother at the bottom of a lake, since she had taken Hrothgar's best man as a revenge for his son's death. Beowulf ends up winning, even though he struggles, and takes Grendel's head with him.
I'm taking this monsters head with me so that everyone can see it.
I can't believe he used that sword, and left me here dying in my own lair.
Some years have passed. Beowulf is now an old man that does not have the strength to fight this dragon alone. Luckily, Wiglaf comes to help him out, but his help is not enough. Beowulf is fighting his last battle.
I am now old, and fighting this dragon is going to be very hard.
Beowulf, I'm here to help you.
This will be your final battle. You are not going to survive this one.
Even though Beowulf and Wiglaf kill the dragon, their victory doesn't last very long. Beowulf isn't inmortal, so he dies after this battle.
You are the last man of the Anglo-Saxon generation. Nobody else follows the comitatus.
This is not the way you are supposed to die; alone. You deserve so much more.
