Beowulf’s Vengeance It is a fair night in Geatland, and Beowulf is celebrating his victory over Grendel's Mother in the mead hall Higlac built for his nephew. The mead hall is named The Court of Champions. "Let us celebrate my nephew’s great accomplishments of ridding the Danish people of their hideous creatures!" Higlac exclaims as he raises his mead cup to his subjects. Higlac by far was one of the fairest kings the Geats have had, after raids he gave each member a portion of the loot and made sure that everyone in the clan was cared for.
Tutsi segregation from the Hutu took on ritual forms (C). It went to the extent of upholding the belief that Tutsi came from “another world” and that they deserved to be treated in a more superior manner by the Hutu (C). Power and authority were emphasised persistently in the Tutsi culture. This caused great tension amongst the tribes. Rwanda became a feudal kingdom which was ruled by the Tutsi tribe.
Beowulf is believed to have been orally transmitted. It is set in Scandinavia, where the Geats, under Hygelac, lived. Beow later travels to the land of the spear Danes, or Denmark to aid Hrothgar in ridding his land of the wretched monster Grendel. (Geatland is Sweden?)

This was a sign of the King’s glory and great leadership. The tower was then named “Beowulf’s Tower.” It would be a reminder to all who passed through on the sea or land that this man, King, was truly a legend. Wiglaf, now King, made his mark by his heroic
When Beowulf begins, the life of Shield Sheafson is summarized with his arrival as an orphan and his eventual dominion over the Danes as a great Danish king. Several generations pass until King Hrothgar is in control of the Danes, a mighty king with the fortunes of war favoring him. Eventually, Hrothgar decided to build a vast mead-hall known as Heorot, which was used to house King Hrothgar’s warriors where he would treat them to a large feast. He also used Heorot to house his throne room. Soon after the construction of Heorot, a mighty demon known as Grendel, a descendant of Cain, attacked the occupants of Heorot, killing thirty men on his first attack.
Hrtohgar described Edgetho’s exile: “Edgetho had begun a bitter feud, killing Hathlaf, a Wulfing warrior: your father’s countrymen were afraid of war, if he returned to his home, and they turned him away.” The bitter feud continued until Hrothgar avenged Hathlaf’s death when he “sent ancient treasures through the ocean’s furrows to the Wulfings” The most notorious perpetrator of wergild was Unferth, who is told by Beowulf that he will “suffer hell’s fires.” The Anglo Saxons also strongly believed in the idea of comitatus, or loyalty to the king. This idea was so
Although the Scyldings may not know who Ecgtheow is, they are still influenced by the fact that Beowulf is a son of some powerful and famous man.

Listeners are persuaded to believe that the boaster is reliable due to his confidence
