Though the incarnation of evil died another monster still lurked in the depths of the lake wanting revenge for the loss of her son.
Grendel's mother reached Herot fighting the soldiers killing only one, Hrothgar's closest friend. As she left Herot she retook her sons claw. Saddened by the loss Hrothgar tells Beowulf about the wicked witch.
Beowulf accepts the challenge to fight Grendel's mother. Beowulf jumps into the lake swimming for hours. Grendel's mother could not harm him when fighting then drags him to her home. Where the two fight in the battle hall where Beowulf learns no weapon can harm her. Then Beowulf used a sword made from a giant to finally kill her and take Grendel's head.
Beowulf now king of the Geats has ruled over his people in peace for 50 years. Then a fire breathing dragon attacked and terrorized his people. Beowulf takes the challenge to fight the dragon bringing a hand picked group of warriors.
Beowulf armors up grabs a sword and shield and goes to fight the dragon. The two meet and the dragon breathes fire onto Beowulf's shield until it melted. Then Beowulf stabbed the dragon and breaks his sword. The dragon attacked Beowulf mercilessly while his soldiers ran away. Wiglaf stayed and helped Beowulf fight the dragon killing it together but Beowulf sustained to much damage.
As Beowulf lays there dyeing he asked Wiglaf to bring him the dragon's treasure as it will bring comfort in his dyeing times. Wiglaf brings him some treasure and Beowulf tells him to lead his people. Beowulf dies asking for his tomb to be built there for all to see. Wiglaf calls the men that return disgraceful. Then the Geats mourned Beowulf and buried him with the treasure.
