This storyboard does not have a description.
Beowulf hears of the trouble that Hrothgar has been facing dealing with Grendel. He gathers his men and they make their way to Hrothgar's kingdom where they are greeted by a guard.
The guard leads Beowulf and his men to the king. Hrothgar gives Beowulf approval to fight Grendel so Beowulf prepares himself and his men.
Beowulf and the Danish people under the rule of King Hrothgar spent the night drinking until it was time to prepare for battle. Beowulf had all of his men "sleep" until Grendel arrived. Beowulf removed all of his armor.
Grendel arrived and immediately attacked one of Beowulf's men. Beowulf was hiding in order to observe Grendel's actions and determine his strength.
Beowulf and Grendel start fighting. His men try to aid him but no sword could pierce Grendel's skin. Beowulf rips off Grendel's arm and the monster retreats back to the swamp to bleed out and die.
Beowulf presented Grendel's arm as a trophy to be hung in the mead hall for Hrothgar. Hrothgar is overjoyed and gives Beowulf gifts and a feast in his honor.
