Thank you Beowulf for your bravery, you will receive gifts in return.
This will come to an end! I will fight you and Herot Hall will be a happy place again.
Beowulf fights Grendel in Herot Hall and wins the battle. He ripped off Grendel's arm and everyone celebrated his victory.
I protected the Danes from your son and I will do the same with you!

Wiglaf help me fight the dragon. I'm old, but nothing stops me from protecting my people.
Beowulf was about to face his final battle against the dragon in the tower which was later named in honor of Beowulf. The only warrior that stayed by his side was Wiglaf. Beowulf won the battle, but he was about to die so he passed the throne to Wiglaf.
I will help you my brave king!
How could you turn away after all Beowulf has done for us?
