Take this Dumbledore Quiz to find out how well you know him. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most fun quiz compared to others.
Dumbledore is well-known as the Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Harry Potter’s mentor. But this incredibly powerful wizard existed long before Harry ever set foot on Hogwarts’ grounds. So, how did he get here? What gave him such clout? Continue reading for 40 fascinating facts about one of the greatest wizards of all time.
He had a lot of names in his mouth.
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was the full name of the legendary Hogwarts Headmaster. This begs the question, do you really need three middle names? Who is the greatest wizard of all time?
From Where He Came
Despite being born in Mould-on-the-Wold, Dumbledore grew up in Godric’s Hollow, the same town as the founder of Gryffindor, Godric Gryffindor, and Harry Potter. There has to be something in the water…
His power was enormous.
Dumbledore was a powerful wizard who didn’t need an Invisibility Cloak. Dumbledore tells Harry in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that if he wants to be invisible, he doesn’t need one of those fancy cloaks. Albus Dumbledore could most likely cast a powerful Disillusionment Charm that rendered him invisible. Also, you must try to play this Dumbledore quiz.
He had faith in prophecy.
Before Harry was born, a prophecy was made about the boy who would be able to bring Lord Voldemort down. Professor Trelawney delivered the prophecy to Dumbledore at the end of her job interview for a position at Hogwarts. That certainly helped her get the job!
He understood how to say “know.”
Dumbledore despised politics. He was apparently offered the position of Minister of Magic several times in his life…but always declined.
Dumbledore’s Patronus, according to J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore website for Harry Potter fans, was a Phoenix. This makes sense given that Dumbledore has a pet phoenix named Fawkes, who saves Harry’s life in the Chamber of Secrets.
A Fan of Muggles
Dumbeldore’s wizard card also lists his hobbies as ten-pin bowling and chamber music, according to Pottermore. I suppose a great wizard needs a break from all that magic.
His Extremely Practical Scar
Dumbledore claims in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that he has a scar on his left knee that is a perfect map of London’s Underground system. That sounds like a witty remark to an 11-year-old, but you never know with Dumbledore…
Dumbledore was a Gryffindor house member during his time at Hogwarts, and who can blame him? He was a wise and brave wizard who was devoted to those he loved.
About the Dumbledore quiz
Various Other Interests
Dumbledore was not only an incredibly powerful wizard, but he was also extremely intelligent. He is credited with discovering the twelve applications for dragon blood. He also experimented with alchemy with his friend Nicolas Flamel, who later invented the Philosopher’s Stone.
The Inventor, Dumbledore
Dumbeldore invented the Deluminator, a device that can turn off lights from a distance and was featured in the first Harry Potter film’s opening scene. In his will, he leaves it to Ron Weasley after his death. In the Deathly Hallows book and film, the Deluminator assists Ron in locating Harry and Hermione after he abandons them following an argument.
Languages of the Sea
Dumbledore was fluent in Mermish. This is demonstrated in the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire after the second task when Dumbledore confers with the Merpeople’s leader about what Harry did to save Ron and Fleur Delacour’s younger sister. I’m curious where he learned that!
Beginning to Teach
Of course, Dumbledore did not begin as Hogwarts’ headmaster; he had to work his way up the ranks. He returned to the school as a professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts after attending in the late 1800s. Dumbledore was barred from teaching DATDA after a run-in with an Auror named Torquil Travers, and he became a professor of Transfiguration.
