Gellert Grindelwald is a dark wizard in the last Harry Potter book called “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” We recently just found out that Gellert Grindelwald was the love of Albus Dumbledore. J.K. Rowling in a Friday reading of her last book was asked a question, “Does Dumbledore ever find true love?” She proceed to say how Dumbledore is gay and that he was in love with Gellert Grindelwald. How crazy is this news to hear?
Gellert Grindelwald is talked about quite a bit in the last book. He meets Dumbledore when both wizards were around 17 years of age. Gellert Grindelwald came to stay with Bathilda Bagshot, who was next door neighbors with Dumbledore, after he was expelled from Durmstrang. During that time the two wizards became best friends. The two of them come up with a plan to make wizards known throughout the world and have them rule of the Muggles. I won’t give away the whole book so the rest of the details I will let you read in the book.
Gellert Grindelwald had comparable magical skills with Albus Dumbledore and he plays a big role in the final book. It is a very good read and definitely worth checking out. You can read more details about J.K. Rowlings statement at the reading on Friday night here, Dumbledore gay.
