Beowulf, son of Ecgtheow, is a mighty warrior and a slayer of monsters. He is also a thane (lord) in the hall of the Geats' ring-giver (king.) He first hews down the monster Grendel, who has been slaughtering folk in huge numbers, at Heorot, the hall of the Danish ring-giver, and then kills the monster's mother. Later on, he becomes ring-giver over the Geats. In his old age a wyrm (dragon) starts to terrorize Geatland, so Beowulf goes off to kill it. He slays it, despite being mortally wounded, and then dies.
Beowulf was an ancient warrior who killed Grendal and died while fighting a fire breathing Dragon
