Loyalty is the quality of being loyal to someone or something. Some may contain this
characteristic, others may not. For Beowulf, he indeed does contain the characteristic. He is loyal
to his people and protects them from any harm. He is a hero to the people. The people are
thankful for what does to protect them. Beowulf is loyal by protecting his people from Grendel,
Grendels mother, and the dragon.
Beowulf remains loyal to the Danes and protects Hrothgars people. When Hrothgar asks
for Beowulfs help, to protect his people from Grendel, he helps. Beowulf remains loyal to
Hrothgar by keeping his word and protecting the people. Beowulf fights Grendel and protects the
people. In return for staying loyal to Hrothgar, Beowulf becomes the new king. So. The Spear-
Danes in days gone by and the kings who ruled them had courage and greatness. (Beowulf).
Since he is the new king, he has courage and greatness so he will be a great king. While he is
king he makes sure his people are safe, and fights if he has to. Beowulf was a good leader and
was loyal to his people. Beowulf was a hero for protecting his people.
A second way Beowulf Is loyal to the people is when he fights Grendels mother.
Beowulf met with Hrothgar to fight Grendel. Beowulf fought Grendel and Grendel ended up
dead. Beowulf was victorious. Everyone in the town was happy, until someones mother was

upset with Beowulf. Shed brooded on her loss, misery had brewed in her heart. (Beowulf).
Grendels mother and Beowulf also fought. Beowulf was loyal and protected what was now his
land, since Hrothgar gave it to Beowulf. Beowulf killed Grendels mother. He was a hero to his
people. He remained loyal to them, even at old age.
Another way Beowulf is loyal to his people is when he fights the dragon. Beowulfs land
and people were safe throughout the years. Until one day a dragon started disturbing the people.
They needed a hero and Beowulf was there. He was old now, but he still wanted to protect his
people. He was loyal to the. He fights off the dragon, with some difficulty, but still ended up
defeating the dragon. Unfortunately, the loyal hero was hurt. Many were upset, he did not make
it. Often, for undaunted courage, fate spares the man it has not already marked (Beowulf).
People believed in Beowulf and thought he was a loyal hero.
Beowulf remains loyal to the people by fighting Grendel, Grendels mother, and the
dragon. Even at Beowulfs old age, he never stopped fighting. He was a loyal person. He helped
fight and protect his people from harm. He was a hero to the Danes.
