The kings were strong and brave warriors which shows the ideals of their culture. It has been established that “The Anglo-Saxon social structure consisted of tribal units led by chieftains ("kings," or "lords") who, theoretically at least, earned their respect from their warriors.” (Delahoyde). Leadership was not just passed down from generation to generation but they had to earn their spot by doing something honorable.

Many of his important speeches include The Gettysburg Address, The Emancipation Proclamation, and his second inauguration speech.

One of the main components of the heroic code in Beowulf is family. Whenever we are introduced to a new character we are told that this character is the related to another character in the novel. “His father before him was called Ecgtheow…This man is their son, here to follow up an old friendship.”(373-375) This forces an identity onto the new character based on the reputation of his relative.
