After suffering from listening to men partying all the time, the demon Grendel attacks the mead hall Herot and slaughters men in the night.
The hero of the Geats, Beowulf, hears of the Danes' great mead hall, Herot, being deserted due to the savage attacks. He and a group of geats travel to the land of the Danes in order to kill the demon.
It is I, Beowulf
AHH, Who is that?!?
Grendel sneaks into Herot at night to attack once again. But to his surprise, when he grabbed Beowulf, Beowulf grabbed him back and ripped his arm off. The demon fled and died of his wounds.
Hes done it!!
After learning that Grendel was not the only monster around, Beowulf goes to kill Grendel's mother and succeeds by stabbing her with a giant sword.
This is for my son!!
After defeating the monsters from the land of the Danes, Beowulf goes home where he eventually becomes king of the Geats. In his old age, he learns of a dragon that he feels he must fight. But the dragon leaves him defenseless and burns him. The only warrior that will help him is Wiglaf.
We can save him!!
Beowulf dies of his wounds from the dragon. To honor him, his people construct a tower. All of the treasure that Beowulf said to give to his people, was buried.
