Some people think Rowling just made up Dumbledore as gay recently, which made me laugh.
It's been over 10 years since she reveled his sexuality publicly.
Also you can feel he might be gay in the books if you are matured enough, it is obvious.
I remember I figured it out even on 4th book.
When I read the books I could never see Dumbledore with a woman so either A-sexual or gay. But I don't know if he and Grindelwald was a thing. Because I can't see Grindelwald as gay. So maybe he saw him as a brother
We don't know they were physical lovers. It has been suggested that, yes, Dumbledor did love Grindelwald, but did Grindelwald ever actually love Albus to the point where he allowed sexual intimacy? Grindelwald LOVED power. Albus was powerful. Grendelwald may have loved Albus for his power, but physically? Emotionally? I'm not convinced. I think it was one-way affection, and it came to an end.
At 12:38 it says that dumbledore died in 1997 and that grindelwald died in 1998 because of Voldemort. If this is true, then how did harry tell dumbledore about grindelwald lying to Voldemort? I'm so confused.
Professor Dumbledore was truly the greatest Wizard Of all time, I know that this has nothing to do with this Video but in another one, I just wish that Professor Dumbledore would've let Tom Riddle work alongside him at Hogwarts. Now, for this Video, I do not believe that Professor Dumbledore was gay AT ALL, sorry, I just don't see it.
That doesn't mean he isn't gay though.
First of all, gay people don't just act a certain way so there wouldn't have been any 'clues' to figure out.
Second of all, Dumbledore's sexuality was never important to the original story which is why it isn't mentioned. It might become more important in fantastic beasts because of his connection to grindelwald though.
And third of all, the books were always from Harry's perspective so how many headmasters do you know that would actively talk to their students about their sexuality? Harry didn't even know that much about Dumbledore's past.
So just because the books never suggested that he was gay doesn't mean he wasn't. And J.K.Rowling confirmed it so he is gay whether you saw it in the books or not
Dumbledore was not as good as he portrayed himself to be. Snape was actually a better person than Dumbledore. He knew Grindlewad was bad and dos nothing. He knew young Tom Riddle was bad and did nothing. He knew Harry was in jeopardy and bred him for slaughter
JK making Dumbledore gay is a great example of “woke marketing”, even if she knew he was gay when the books were ongoing, she should’ve made it a point of emphasis or at lest confirm it. You have to be naive to think she just happened to announce it right before the release of book 7.
So Grindelwald lied about where the elder wand is? But in the movie didn't he say "it lies with him, dumbledoor"?
Also once again you don't have to kill to get the elder wand by the looks of it, it once again shows that Snape did not need to die especially that Voldermort liked him???
No you do not necessarily have to kill someone to gain mastery of the elder wand. You only need to defeat the Master of the wand in combat. You do not even need to shed any blood, disarming him or her would be sufficient to gain mastery of the elder wand.
It is also worthwhile to note that the same rule also applies for most wands, although exceptions are present. You can gain a wand's allegiance through four means; to have it choose you at a wand maker's shop, disarming it's master, inheriting the wand (such as in the case of the Malfoy family, in which the oldest member of the family wields a wand which has been a family heirloom for centuries), or killing the master of the wand. It is important to note that killing in order to gain mastery of a wand does not necessarily mean you have to use magic ; the elder wand changed its allegiance for the first time after its original owner and creator, was killed in his sleep through the use of non-magic methods.
I am so glad you did a dumbledoor/ Grindelwald video, I was about to comment on the dumbledoor video you should include this storyline.
Because I was just starting to watch fantastic beast but couldn't get into it, it sucked so I googled what is has to do with harry potter [verse], came across their friendship, love interest then enimies. I read that Grindelwald was worse than Voldermort, I was like "so why did dumbledoor like him then, so I came straight to your video
Wow thank u so much for yr video ...i ve always been intrested in Albus and Gellert story but never knew they were lovers ...i was so focused on Tom riddle's untold storie i felt that JK didn't do him justice and should ve expanded his side of the story but i guess as u said the main focus was Harry...so Albus -Gellert-Regolas Black -Tom riddle -Severus Snape 's stories remained untold or was just hints.
again loved yr vid ^^
It’s been confirmed that Gellert actually loved Albus and was jealous of Newt because he sees him as Albus’s protégé, that’s why he says « what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you? »
Or « Do you think Dumbledore will mourn for you ? »
One of the early drafts of the script for the Half blood prince there was a line where Dumbledore recalled to Harry about a girl that he once liked in his youth. During the table read JK Rowling scribbled out the line and wrote at the side of it Dumbledore is gay and passed the script back to the writer. JK Rowling knew from very early on that Dumbledore was gay.
Neither of them did that. It's not uncommon for wizards to live that long. Dumbledore wasn't even the oldest in the series (even when excluding the Flamels). The only ones to use drink the elixir of life were Nicholas Flamel and his wife.
Your all videos are amazing. You have my subscribe and all, but one piece of advice.. Dont use picture of
Michael Gambon as a Dumbldore, please. It disturbs me, cause he presented Dumbldore in very different way as he is in the books. If you use Dumbldore as picture, use Illustration (or Richard Harris).
Have anyone ever thought that its nosense that non-magic run the world? Every time when tribe/country/any other group of people gain more power than the others they try to boss around. Look at the history.
Why wizards didn't fight the muggles before they invented advanced technology etc? And really, dont try to tell me that Grindewald was the first one who wanted wizards to rule.
A) There are more Muggles than magical folk ... Numbers were against them
B) Muggles were not entirely helpless
C) most magical folk don't want to rule over anyone .. they just want to be left alone
D) they knew they would be feared and there would be resistance all the time , costing lives and money on their part .
E) Most of the magical community don't have a appetite for war , and had no appetite for killing other beings magical or non magical on a mass scale .
In short they didn't have the heart for it . They knew they couldn't get the muggles to trust them and it's one thing to knock a Muggle out with a stunning spell and having a ministry official wipe their memories . To have to kill a whole village / town( Inculding none combatants ) because they acted out of fear is another ...
They knew the non magical community would fear them , and that it would cost them dearly in casualties and the cycle of fear of the muggles and death toll in the magical community would be stuck in a permanent cycle .
In short for most it wasn't worth it .
Such wizards such as Grindewald were seen as fanatics
And killed thosaunds...
+Nina riddle no, it's not because he;s a villain so his look is freak, it's because he split his soul into many pieces so he's not "human" anymore, his look changes from human ---> devil. JKR explains this before, you can search to understand easier
+Nina riddle Well it was a children's book , the bad guys tend to look evil and over the top . Plus when you split your soul it's bound to affect your appearance.
The readers were older when she really introduced Grindewald .. who didn't need two tone eyes for you to know he was bad news .
Same as Dumbledore was potrayed as a kind good man earlier on ... Yet in the latter books his story goes down a dark path .
She adpated the suitations to the readers level of understanding
True ...i always hated how she turned hot Tom into a freak...i mean just coz he was a villain doesnt mean he has to be ugly!!!!....i know its coz of the horxrucs but still...he can have scars or some shit...but wipe out his whole nose...thats a bit exagerating dont u think?
OMG!!! WOW!!! I think if Grindelwald lived just a bit longer, this theory could have happened: Gellert somehow breaks out of prison, ( probably learning what happened to Albus!) would go into a terrible rage, the likes which has never before seen. Then gaining a wand somehow (which would be easy for him but he could fight without one if he had to.). Just before the Battle of Hogwarts, Grindlewald arriving in secret. During it, he would be killing Death Eaters left and right, consumed by soul-wenching grief! He reaches the Great Hall, coming upon the duel with Voldemort. With a un-shakeable will and determination he hasn't felt in a long time and having finally taking the chance to avenge his fallen love-of-his life, joins in! Gallery knows he has no chance of defeating Voldemort but that doesn't stop him! Just before Voldemort kills him, Gellert comes to peace and terms with everything that has happened in his life, (and Albus as well), then it happenes! Afterwards, he finds himself at the entrance to the afterlife. When he gets there, he sees Albus standing there. Grindelwald is filled with joy and happiness upon seeing his lost love! Gellert tries to apologize for all that he did and other things but Albus cuts him off, telling him it's ok, that all of it is over now, than it's time to let it all go and join him in peace so they can finally be happy, having gone through so much pain and misery in their lives. Then they leave this plane of existence together, this time forever. They are now joined with Albus's sister and their mother and father, for all of eternity! After the battle, Harry, having learned the truth about everything, comes upon Grindelwald's body. Hardly anyone would notice, but Harry would. He makes up his mind and makes the decision to Transfigure Gellert's body (maybe like Barty Crouch Sr). Harry then goes to where Albus is buried. Harry does this because in honor for what he tried to do and knowing how much he meant to the late headmaster. He finds a spot next to Albus and buries Grindelwald side by side, (likely a similar type of grave like Dobby's). He then makes a similar headstone, bearing his name. Now they are together forever physically as well!
Like there is something illogical, in the Crimes of Grindelwad they mentioned the blood oath thing that prevented dumbeldore and grindelwald from fighting , and this was the reason that delayed dumbeldore from fighting grindelwad. But how could they fight back then in the incident when Ariana was killed isn't that a fight ?!?!
Harry didn't know in how much Danger he was when Dumbledore was around. At some Point Anal would have been unavoidable. Grindelwald got the D in the A. That little Cumdumpster. But that might have been Harry. Scarry Shit.
Did the dialogue between harry and albus about grindelwald and voldemort take place after harry talked to albus after he was struck by voldemort by the killing curse because it doesn't add up that Grindelwald died after albus but harry and albus were talking about how he he died protecting albuss tomb
Spoiler alert ⚠ my fan theory ......................................
I believe Gellert took an unhealthy interest in Ariana having watched her obscurus qualities whilst living in Godrick's Hollow with his aunt Bathilda. He has the ability to manipulate the innocent and kind-hearted. I believe that he groomed Ariana with friendship (like he seduced her brother Albus) before raping her, which if this theory is true will be referred to as 'defiling' her. The Crimes Of Grindelwald depicted how Mr Lestrange had put women under a spell so they could bear his children. I think GG cast this with Ariana because he wanted to reproduce more Obscurials for the 'Greater Good' in his grand scheme of taking down muggles (remember Ariana had been taunted by muggle boys so a lonely teenaged girl with uncontrollable rage could be convinced to go with his plan). I believe Credence is Ariana and Gellert's son and I don't think Ariana actually died in that 3-way battle with Aberforth. I think it was a ruse to ship Ariana out of the country so she could give birth. I don't think Grindelwald even knew if the baby 🤱 👶 was a boy 👦 or a girl 👧 but assumed that it was a girl because it would have Obscurus powers like it's mother. That's why he thought the Obscurial was Modesty in Fantastic Beasts 1. Both Ariana and Credence had surpassed the life expectancy for an Obscurial and both desperately in need of love and devotion. Also they were both misunderstood to be squibs because they suppressed their magic 🧝♂️. Think about it the entire Dumbledore 'siblings' have "A" names and the 2 older brothers names have AB prominence whereas Aurelias is more similar to Ariana because of the AR prominence. Albus is 20 years than Credence/ Aurelias so even though the phoenix arrived to Credence in the way Fawkes does to Albus; I believe this Dumbledore family 👪 legacy is more to do with them being uncle and nephew rather than brothers especially considering the huge age gap. The way Colin Farrel is with Ezra Miller in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them could be interpreted as creepy but also perhaps like a father showing affection to his son. That's why he got so mad 😡 at the end when he thought 💭 MACUSA killed him.
There are queries I want to know with regards to this theory of mine such as whether Ariana is still alive. If so I guess Dumbledore never finds out as he still carried the guilt of her death ☠ in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince 🤴. I also don't think Aberforth knew as well as he held on to deep resentment even after Dumbledore's death. Did Mary Lou know the truth or was the "wicked evil 😈 🧙♀️ woman 👩" she was referring to was who she believed to be his mother during the drowning accident mix up which would have been Corvos Lestrange's mum? I mean she said woman 👩 and not girl 👧 so maybe she didn't realise his real mum is Ariana Dumbledore.
I think Grindewald knew all of Voldemort part was going to happen, and everything all the way up to Voldemort rise to power - after all he was the most talented wizard in history in the matters of clairvoyance. How such a wizard not see his own ending and suffering? In the end, all he did was to protect wizards and muggles, in a Watchman's Ozimandyas way, let say.
In the end he trully loved dumbledore but had to sacrifice all for the greater good.
Viktor shit you’re right, the resurrection stone was in the gaunt family ring right? Well I guess dumbledore could’ve asked for Harry’s invisibility cloaks during his sixth year to complete the trifecta.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
