Storyboard Text

  • Beowulf hung Grendel’s arm from the walls of Herot as a sign of victory.
  • Grendel’s mother then attacked Herot taking her son’s arm back. Beowulf chased after the beast and eventually slew her as well.
  • He then returned to Herot, where King Hrothgar showered the hero with gifts. He returned home to Geatland and ruled as king for fifty years.
  • Beowulf’s reign would not end in peace, however. A dragon’s burrow was robbed, which caused it to go on a rampage of destruction.
  • Beowulf summoned the last of his strength and faced the dragon. The battle was long and strenuous, but with the help of Wiglaf, he had defeated the beast but at a great cost.
  • The warrior suffered many wounds from the battle and died soon after.
