Personal: Gellert Grindelwald was born around 1883, probably in Central or Eastern Europe, although Scandinavia is also a possiblity. He was educated at the wizarding school of Durmstrang Institute, and as a student, he proved himself to be as precociously brilliant as Albus Dumbledore. However, he did not use his talents to win awards and prizes, and was instead devoted to experimenting with the Dark Arts. His experiments became twisted to the point of nearly killing several of his fellow students, and he was expelled at the age of sixteen. He was particularly interested in the Deathly Hallows, even using the Hallows' symbol as his own and engraving it on the walls of Durmstrang prior to his departure. His research led him to stay with his great-aunt, Bathilda Bagshot, in Godric's Hollow, England, where Ignotus Peverell, said to be the rightful keeper of Death's Cloak of Invisibility, had been laid to rest. It was in Godric's Hollow that Grindelwald met and befriended Albus Dumbledore, a young wizard as talented and brilliant as he. The two teenage boys became united by their ambitions for glory and plans to bring about "a new world order" in which wizards would rule over Muggles.They coined the phrase that would become Grindelwald's slogan and his justification for committing horrific crimes against those who opposed him: "For the Greater Good."The two became extremely close, even to the point of romantic attraction on Dumbledore's part. At some point, Grindelwald became aware of his friend's attraction and used it to his advantage, manipulating the other boy into aiding him unquestioningly in his plans. Aberforth Dumbledore became aware of the pair's plans, and attempted to dissuade Albus from dragging their troubled younger sister, Ariana, along with them on their campaign, knowing she would not receive the kind of care and attention she needed to keep her stable. Grindelwald inflicted the Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth, and Albus moved to defend his brother, igniting a three-way duel in which Ariana was killed. The two Dumbledores were devastated. Albus ended his friendship with Grindelwald, who fled the country, not wanting to be associated with the death considering the fact that he already had a bad record in his country.Working on his own from that point forward, Grindelwald delved into his research of the Deathly Hallows, and uncovered the location of the Elder Wand. Rumours had been circulating that the renowned wandsmith Gregorovitch had the wand and was trying to duplicate its properties. Grindelwald broke into the wandmaker's workshop, and succeeded in claiming ownership of the fabled wand by waiting until Gregorovitch came then casting a stunning spell on him to be the rightful owner instead.Over the years, Grindelwald raised an army and began a reign of terror that spread through several European countries, though he never attempted to take power in Britain for his fear of his former friend, Dumbledore, who was "a shade more skillful" than he was.During his reign, he built the Nurmengard prison to hold any objecters, and murdered countless European wizards, including Viktor Krum's grandfather all the while continuing to claim everything he did was "for the greater good." which was the phrase he put on the entrace of Nurmengard.

When his dark work and justification became "too much", he was finally confronted, due to the cries of the public, by his old friend Albus Dumbledore. The resulting duel was spectacular although in the end, Gellert was victorious against Dumbledore yet spared the latter for the time being.

Currently, he seeks the remaining two pieces of the Deathly Hallows while building up and expanding his empire.
