Sister to Hymgod of the Helmings, Wealtheow sacrifices her own future happiness to marry Hrothgar, thus winning peace between her people and the Scyldings. Her very presence brings peace and joy to those around her, even though she herself is never truly joyful. Wealtheow is much younger than Hrothgar, a fact that does not escape the king as his powers fail him.
