Afterwards, Hrothgar thanks Beowulf and gave him many bounties. They had a celebration in Herot, and Welthow, Hrothgar's wife, gave Beowulf a necklace for his bravery. But inside the bog, the she wolf herself, who raised Grendel, was furious with the death of her son Grendel. Overnight, she crept up out of the fen and killed one of Hrothgar's greatest men, Esher. Beowulf decided to go after the she wolf and kill her. After three hours, the Danes gave up hope and left, but the Geats stayed, knowing their lord was okay. After a while, Beowulf returned with the head of Grendel. The Geats carried it up to the kingdom of the Danes to show them their accomplishment.
Many thanks, Lord Hrothgar.
You managed to kill that she wolf and her offspring?! Please take many of my treasures, as much as you can carry!
Many years pass, and Beowulf gets older and soon becomes the King of the Geats. Meanwhile, a slave has stolen a cup from a dragon and awoken it. The dragon searches for the thief with no luck and goes on a rampage, burning innocent civilians and destroying the land. Beowulf hears of this and decides to fight the dragon. All of Beowulf's men flee, except for Wiglaf, who would rather die for his lord than flee in terror
My time has come to die. My last wish is to see all my treasure I won from this battle
With the help of Wiglaf, Beowulf manages to kill the dragon, but Beowulf gets mortally wounded.
Later, Beowulf's men return and Wiglaf tells them that they'd have been better off dead than to live the terrible life they have to live knowing they killed their King.
You all should be ashamed for leaving your lord in his time of need. You guys would've been better off dead than living a life of grief knowing you killed your king!
