HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME → three young versions of characters from the books [1/3] » Toby Regbo as Albus Dumbledore
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was born to Kendra and Percival Dumbledore in the summer of 1881, in the mainly wizarding village of Mould-on-the-Wold. Dumbledore began attending Hogwarts in the autumn of 1892 and was Sorted into Gryffindor house. After graduation, Albus had to return to Godric’s Hollow to look after his family, full of bitter resentment at his situation, feeling trapped and wasted. Fortune finally shone on Dumbledore in the form of Gellert Grindelwald, who was in Godric’s Hollow to research the Deathly Hallows. Dumbledore quickly became fascinated by Grindelwald’s ideas, who was as brilliant and talented as he was. Albus also harboured romantic feelings for the other boy, but regretted his relationship with Grindelwald later in life.
