The great serpent’s teeth reached Beowulf’s neck and the king’s life-blood gushed from his body. The brave Wiglaf drove his sword into the beast and for a moment the flames went out; a moment that allowed the battle-brave King Beowulf to drive the fatal wound to the leathery beast. Stumbling from exhaustion, Beowulf spoke these words to Wiglaf, “ I feared no one. I awaited my destiny well: never did I plot a quarrel, never did I swear an unjust oath. I take joy in this, despite my mortal wound.” Wiglaf witnessed the demise of his beloved king. He built a burial mound atop the mountain in honor of King Beowulf and exiled his treacherous kinsman from the land. The life of a great king had ended, but the memory of his bravery and valor lives on!
“Go quickly, Wiglaf, examine the hoard under the gray stone, now that the dragon lies sleeping…Be in haste so that I may see the ancient treasure, may examine the curious gems, so that I may more cheerfully give up my life and country.” Beowulf.
