Containing one of the earliest accounts of a dragon slaying, Beowulf is an epic Old English poem set in Scandinavia. The work is commonly referred to as one of the most important works of Anglo-Saxon literature. The poem tells the story of Beowulf, a hero of the Geats in Scandinavia, who comes to help King Hrothgar of the Danes, whose people have been attacked by a monster known as Grendel. After Beowulf slays the monster, Grendel's mother attacks the mead hall where the townspeople are hiding just before the hero kills her as well. Beowulf returns home to Geatland in Sweden and later becomes king. After 50 years, Beowulf partakes in an epic battle with a dragon that is threatening to destroy his kingdom and people. Beowulf is fatally wounded in the battle and later dies a hero, king and great monster slayer
