From Beowulf: The Hall Heorot is Attached by Grendel
a reading from Beowulf
Heorot=he who ruled wide with his words.
Heorot (Old English pronunciation: [ˈhɛo̯rɔt]; Modern: /ˈheɪ.ɒroʊt/ HAY-orr-oht, sometimes translated Herot) is a mead hall described in the Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf as "the foremost of halls under heaven." It served as a palace for King Hroðgar, a legendary Danish king of the sixth century. Heorot means "Hall of the Hart" (male deer).[1] The Geatish (Swedish) hero Beowulf defends the royal hall and its residents from the demonic Grendel.
