Beowulf

King Hrothgar was a great warrior, but now he is unable to protect his people like he used to be able to. A young warrior named Beowulf traveled from his land and across the sea to help to people from being attacked at herot and came to destroy grendal. Beowulf offered to figt off grendal without any weapons because they did not affect grendal.

King Hrothgar is troubled by grendel almost everynight.Grendal attacks herot all the time whe people are having a party there and having a feast.

Grendel has an overprotective mother who decides to avenge her son. While all the warriors are sleeping off the party, she attacks Heorot Hall. Beowulf dives into the lake and finds the cave, where he takes on Grendel's mother in another one-on-one battle. Seizing a nearby sword from Grendel's mother's stash of treasure, then killing her.

Beowulf says goodbye to King Hrothgar and sails back to Geatland, where he is a lord in the court of King Hygelac. When Beowulf returns to the surface, carrying the sword hilt and Grendel's severed head, the Danish warriors have given him up for dead, but his own Geatish followers are still waiting patiently.

The next time Grendel attacks Heorot Hall, Beowulf is waiting for him. Beowulf wrestles the demon into submission and eventually tears off his arm at the shoulder. Grendel flees into the wilderness and dies. Hrothgar gives Beowulf many presents and treasures to reward him for his heroic defeat of the demon.
