We’ve got a whole dossier dedicated to this infamous dark wizard and his crimes (that we know about so far). The short story is though that Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) studied at Durmstrang Academy somewhere in Eastern Europe and then later became friends with Albus Dumbledore. The two became quite close and they began to dabble in some unsavory theories. The friends believed that muggles should bow down to wizards. One day, it all came to a violent end when Dumbledore and Grindelwald dueled for the first time, and somewhere in the fray Dumbledore’s sister Ariana—who you might remember from Deathly Hallows)—died. Grindelwald is estranged from Dumbledore and is gathering dark forces to make the ideology he used to share with Dumbledore a reality.
