Albus and Gellert"s first meeting

Albus Dumbledore first met Gellert Grindelwald at a rather difficult time in his life, when he was seventeen years old. He had just finished his studies at Hogwarts, where he had excelled at everything, been Head Boy và won prize after prize – including the Barnabus Finkley Prize for Exceptional Spell-Casting. This exciting stage of his life had been set lớn continue, as he was supposed khổng lồ go on a tour of the world with his friend Elphias Doge. However, tragedy struck on the eve of their trip. His mother, Kendra, was killed in an accident and Albus had lớn return to Godric’s Hollow khổng lồ take care of his brother, Aberforth and sister, Ariana. This was no easy task, as after being brutally attacked by a group of Muggle boys, his sister had turned her magic inwards, was unstable, sometimes dangerous và needed constant care.

It just so happened that during that summer another wizard was preparing to spend some time in that particular village, Gellert Grindelwald. He had come lớn stay with his great aunt Bathilda Bagshot. Lượt thích Albus, Gellert was another gifted young wizard. However, according to lớn Rita Skeeter (who isn’t known for being an especially reliable source), rather than channelling his abilities into winning prizes and achievements, Grindelwald had taken a different path & had been expelled from the Durmstrang Institute as a result.

Yet, as two highly intelligent wizards of the same age who were stuck in a small village, it is easy to understand why these two were drawn lớn one another. Dumbledore & Grindelwald soon struck up a friendship, bouncing ideas off one another, obsessing over the Deathly Hallows và coming up with their plan of how the wizarding world could look if Muggles were subservient to lớn wizards.

Their conversations served as an escape for Dumbledore, who had felt trapped after the death of his mother và allowed him lớn imagine a future where he was free to vì as he pleased. Dumbledore believed that if he and Grindelwald were successful at finding all the Hallows, not only would they become immensely powerful and the masters of death, but he could use the Resurrection Stone khổng lồ bring his parents back và lift all the responsibility he had from his shoulders.

Yet, reality soon came calling for Dumbledore, in the khung of his siblings…


A fracture in their relationship

During that summer, Dumbledore had neglected both his brother & his sister và Aberforth soon let him know about it. Aberforth was set to return khổng lồ Hogwarts và was fed up with Dumbledore’s plotting with Grindelwald – in addition lớn being concerned about Ariana’s care. He bluntly reminded Albus that he could not go searching for the Deathly Hallows with his fragile sister in tow. Albus và Gellert were not happy lớn have their dreams crushed và made their feelings clear.

According to lớn Aberforth, this involved Grindelwald becoming angry và calling him a stupid little boy. He told Aberforth that Ariana would no longer have to lớn be hidden if he và Albus were successful & that he shouldn’t stand in their way.

Unfortunately, this argument soon took a turn for the worse và escalated into a fight. Aberforth drew his wand and so did Gellert. He used the Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth, which prompted Albus to try và stop him. Soon, all three wizards were duelling. The loud noises và flashing lights caused immeasurable distress khổng lồ Ariana, who then tried khổng lồ become involved. Aberforth always maintained that she wanted to help but didn’t know how. Amidst all the chaos, she ended up dead. Though nobody knows who was the one lớn cast the curse that killed her, Grindelwald fled và that marked the over of his & Dumbledore’s friendship.

Their complicated ties in Fantastic Beasts

By the time we came across Dumbledore & Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts, decades had passed since their summer together as teenagers. Grindelwald was still determined to enact his vision for the wizarding world. He had also managed khổng lồ steal the Elder Wand from the wandmaker Gregorovitch – so was now in possession of one of the Deathly Hallows.

Meanwhile, Dumbledore had taken a different path entirely. Distancing himself from Grindelwald, he had become a respected teacher at Hogwarts. He had also built up a reputation as a talented và powerful wizard – even if he did find himself at odds with the Ministry of Magic on occasion. In the ensuing years, he saw that his former friend was becoming even more dangerous (especially after Grindelwald’s escape from MACUSA custody at the beginning of Crimes of Grindelwald) but mysteriously refused khổng lồ move against him – although many believed that he was the only wizard capable of stopping Grindelwald.

We soon learnt that Dumbledore’s refusal was due khổng lồ the fact he was unable to oppose him, rather than unwilling. In the chaos caused by Grindelwald’s deadly rally in Paris, Teddy the Niffler stole a jewelled vial from the Dark wizard. It turned out khổng lồ be a blood troth between Dumbledore và Grindelwald, which meant that they were prohibited from moving against each other. It also offered & added insight into their relationship as teenagers. They must have been extremely close to lớn be willing to form such a pact.

Yet, as Newt presented the troth lớn Dumbledore at the over of Crimes of Grindelwald, we can’t help but wonder what that now means for the pair. Will Dumbledore be able to lớn destroy it? Will he even want to? & though we know they supposedly don’t come face-to-face until their duel in 1945, does this now mean Dumbledore can move against the Dark wizard?


Their story in their later years

While Dumbledore had defeated Grindelwald many years before Harry Potter’s story took place, we still think that part of their history is worth mentioning – especially as Grindelwald’s name cropped up.

In fact, Grindelwald was mentioned as far back as Philosopher’s Stone. When Harry unwrapped his first-ever Chocolate Frog, he got the Dumbledore thẻ which read, ‘Professor Dumbledore is particularly famous for his defeat of the Dark wizard Grindelwald in 1945’ – though that’s the last we heard about that particular Dark wizard until the Deathly Hallows. It was in this book that we learnt about the pair’s turbulent past & how they knew each other so well. Yet it was also this book that showed us the over of Grindelwald’s story, when he was murdered in his cell at Nurmengard by Lord Voldemort – who was in pursuit of the Elder Wand.

What made things interesting was that Grindelwald had refused to lớn tell Voldemort where the Elder Wand was. He knew that Dumbledore was the current owner và he probably worked out that it remained with Dumbledore in his tomb. You might think that as Dumbledore was the reason that he was locked up, he would be more than happy to giới thiệu the information with Voldemort, but he didn’t. It was his unspoken motivation behind that decision that was fascinating.

Some say that in his fifty years in Nurmengard, Grindelwald had begun to show remorse for his actions. So, this could have been an attempt lớn try và make some small amends by stopping Voldemort from getting his hands on the Hallow. But it was Harry who raised another interesting and valid point. Harry said he may have withheld the information khổng lồ stop Voldemort from desecrating Dumbledore’s tomb. If that had been the case, it could have meant that, despite everything that went on between them, Grindelwald still had a lingering affection or respect for his former friend…


What does this all mean for The Secrets of Dumbledore

While we know the start & the end of this pair’s story, what happened in the middle is still rather a mystery. Though, if the trailers for The Secrets of Dumbledore are anything to go by, we might be about khổng lồ learn a little more about that period of time. At the very least, we think we are going to get a deeper insight into their relationship.

We wonder whether this film will reveal more about the aforementioned blood troth và what Dumbledore decides to vì with it. While it was arguably his relationship with Grindelwald that caused the death of his sister, the fractured bond with his brother & his own decision khổng lồ never pursue power nguồn in the same way again, how easy would it really be for Dumbledore lớn move against someone with whom he had such a complex and long history?

On another note, we can’t help but be curious about the glimpses we’ve seen of the pair together. They famously never came back into liên hệ until their climactic duel in 1945… but was that really the case? Or is there more to lớn their intricate history than we ever knew? What seems sure is that these two wizards appear khổng lồ be bound to one another, & we’re excited lớn see where their story takes us next.
