Therefore, it is easy to see that Beowulf was a very important person in the times of King Alfrith the Good. This translated to be one of the strongest kings in the world, and he managed to administer his realm from 686 to 888. Furthermore, it is known that Beowulf established close relations with Beothed Hilda the Deaf leader of the Britons and would later go on to establish a line that stretched from the south to the east. Some of the sources that Beowulf wrote show that Beowulf was very devoted to his people and that in 683 he established a bridge over the Baffin. Although this may seem to be somewhat
