Beowulf's dying wish was to see the treasure that he and Wiglaf won from the dragon they killed, and he made Wiglaf his heir to the throne as he dies.

Beowolfs last wish was to be respected and seen as a hero. He wanted the public to have pride in him.

When Beowulf realized he was dying, he talked to his loyal knight, Wiglaf. He said he would have liked to have had a son to give his armor to. His last words were to Wiglaf after he has given him the Golden Collar, he called him "the last of the Waegmundings," recognizing him as the final member of his clan after his death.

Beowulf asks Wiglaf to bring the treasure for him to see before he dies.

  • ...[Beowulf spoke,]old in his grief, as he saw the gold:
  • "I give thanks aloud to the Lord of all,
  1. King of glories, eternal Ruler,

    for the bright treasures I can see here,

    that I might have gained such gifts as these

    for the sake of my people before I died.

    Now that I have given my old life-span

  2. for this heap of treasures, you are to watch

    the country's needs. I can stay no longer.

    Order a bright mound made by the brave,

    after the pyre, at the sea's edge;

    let it rise high on Whale's Cliff,

  3. a memorial to my people, that ever after

    sailors will call it 'Beowulf's barrow'

(Chickering, Beowulf, pp. 217, 219.)

You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
