Is Beowulf a ideal king and hero Some say that Beowulf lacked characteristics to be a good hero and king Beowulf lacked nothing he fought all sorts of monsters dragons and other types of scary creatures To prove this Beowulf traveled out of his way to fight Grendel killed Grendels mom when she stole the kings best friend and killed him also when Beowulf was an old man and king he fought the dragon by himself with little help from his thanes One day Beowulf heard of the monster Grendel terrorizing the Danes so being a hero ask King Hygelac if he can travel to the land of the Danes and slaughter Grendel By doing this it shows that Beowulf has respect for his king and shows that he has all the making for being a hero since he always wants to help out with others problems After this Beowulf travels to the land of the Danes and goes after Grendel with his men but at the time not knowing that Grendel could only be killed with bare hands Beowulf then goes and attacks Grendel they fight for awhile and then Beowulf tares off Grendels arm and kills the beast the reasoning of pulling off the arm was so he could prove he killed the beast This segment of his life shows that Beowulf is an ideal hero since he goes and fights others battles which he wouldnt even have to do After slaying the beast Grendel one of the kings best friend is took and killed by Grendels mom Beowulf could have been like I just killed one beast now I have to go kill another one but he wasnt like that at all he went out for Grendels mom Beowulf then travels to the deep dark swamp to go after the evil beast woman Beowulf goes and fights the beast in the water for a really long time being a smart guy
