One day, the kingdom of the Geats were attacked by a vicious dragon. It was up to King Beowulf and his partner Wiglaf to go and destroy the terrible creature:
I could die... but I must save my people!
Beowulf: Stay away from my kingdom or perish!
Wiglaf: Are you sure we can do this Beowulf?
Despite the desperate odds of the situation at hand, King Beowulf did not stand down and despite the fear of death, he fought until he won the battle:
Beowulf: It is OK. I have finally defeated the evil dragon! But alas: I have been injured severely...
Wiglaf: My king!!! Are you OK??
However, there were repercussions to his victory: he had an injury that he could not recover from. From here King Beowulf had to decide what to do from here:
Beowulf: Wiglaf, my loyal companion, I want you to do me a favor: collect the riches at the top of the tower, and when I die, I want you to keep them in a tower so that everyone can know of what happened here...
Wiglaf: I shall do this...
After King Beowulf had breathed his last, Wiglaf went to the top of the tower to sought out the riches that Beowulf wanted, and from there continued to do as Beowulf instructed:
Wigaf: (Speaks to himself) OK my king, I have found the riches, I shall do everything you asked...
Elder: Hey young lad, do you remember the story of King Beowulf?
After these events passed, every last one of the common people known as the Geats knew of the story of King Beowulf. As time passed, Beowulf became known as the greatest hero of all time.
Young boy: Of COURSE I know about THAT story! I mean, who DOESN'T??
King Beowulf was buried in a great tower that was created in his honor. His riches were also buried with him just as Beowulf had requested. In the end he was honored more than any other king the Geats had ever had:
