Beowulf searches for the beast to get revenge for the lost warriors.

Then what happened...

How did the story end?

Beowulf begins his search for Grendel. Beowulf and grendel fight in vicious combat as Beowulf swings his sword he cuts Grendel and he bleeds out. Now that Grendel is dead his Grendels mother is furious with rage and wants revenge for the death of her fallen son. His mother goes to find Beowulf to battle him in the honor of her son. When she finds him they go into serious combat. Beowulf slices Grendels moms head clean off of her shoulders.

Beowulf then has to battle a dangerous dragon. Beowulf strikes the dragon in the head with his sword, but the sword snaps and breaks. The dragon lands a bite on Beowulf’s neck, and blood begins to flow. Wiglaf rushes to Beowulf’s aid, stabbing the dragon in the belly, and the dragon scorches Wiglaf’s hand. In desperation Beowulf pulls a knife from his belt and stabs it deep into the dragon’s flank. The blow is fatal and hurts the dragon. The bite on his neck begins to burn and swell. He realizes that the dragon bite is venomous and that he is dying. He sends Wiglaf to inspect the dragon’s treasure and bring him a portion of it. Wiglaf descends into the barrow and quickly returns to Beowulf with an armload of treasure. The old king, dying, thanks God for the treasure that he has won for his people. He tells Wiglaf that he must now look after the Geats and order his troop to build him a barrow that people will call “Beowulf’s Barrow.” After giving Wiglaf the collar from his own neck, Beowulf dies.
