Transcript of beowulf
in the mountains where he laid to die.
Grendel's mother enraged had came to
the hall in the night and killed all the men.
Except for Beowulf and the king. When Beowulf had woken all of his men were hung from the roof; dead. He had ran to the cave of Grendel's mother(the water demon) and made her a deal. The deal was if he gave her another child and the king's golden mead horn that she would not harm the town as long as the horn did not come back. After the recent king died, Beowulf was the crowned king for "killing" Grendel's mother. He hid behind that lie for 50 years, until one day a man came to the land of Denmark carrying the horn that he stole from a dragon's hoard. Beowulf was now scared for his land, for the deal was broken. The next week a dragon had attack the village and Beowulf knew what had happened. by the deal being broken, the village was now under attack by the beast. Beowulf knew that the only way to kill the beast was to stab it in the heart but that was inside of it's neck. Wiglaf saw that his king was losing and came to aide him. Both Beowulf and Wiglaf were able to kill the dragon with a few hits to the stomach and neck. Unfortunately, the beast had poisoned Beowulf and his fate was sealing. Beowulf started to lose the battle as the dragon torched him with it's fiery breath. The funeral was built on the cliff above to serve as a beacon for ships. He passed the tokens of kingship over to Wiglaf for his heroic act and for being loyal to the king. The heroics of BEOWULF were remembered by the Norse for as long, as he was great! The king gave the town's people the treasures from the dragon's hoard, and requested that there be a funeral in honor of him. Beowulf and the dragon fought on a 500ft high cliff with the beast's overhanging hoard nearby. It was likely the town's people would be invaded and enslaved by their enemies because of his death As a memorial to the king they built a lighthouse over his burial pile on the cliff.
