Like his ancestors, Hrothgar has kept the kingdom prosperous through winning battles and honoring his warriors. He decides to build a lavish hall named Heorot. Soon it is finished, and it becomes a great hall of feastingŠ until the demon Grendel hears the happiness in the hall and wishes to destroy it. Thus Grendel begins the bloody, 12-year rampage on Heorot that leaves Hrothgar and his people powerless to stop him.
