"My own brother, Aberforth, was prosecuted for practising inappropriate charms on a goat. It was all over the papers, but did Aberforth hide? No, he did not! He held his head high and went about his business as usual! Of course, I'm not entirely sure he can read, so that may not have been bravery..."
— Aberforth's unconventional personality[src]

Aberforth Dumbledore (b. c. 1884) was an English half-blood wizard, the second son of Percival and Kendra Dumbledore, younger brother of Albus, older brother of Ariana, and biological father of Aurelius. He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry between 1895 and 1902. His father — who had been sentenced to prison for attacking three Muggles — died in Azkaban when Aberforth was young, and his mother and sister were later accidentally killed. Aberforth blamed his brother Albus for the death of their sister, Ariana, and thus their relationship was rather strained.

Aberforth was the owner and barman of the Hog's Head Inn in Hogsmeade, and was a member of the original Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War.

In 1998, he assisted Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger from a distance during their Horcrux hunt, sending the House-elf Dobby to help them escape from Malfoy Manor. He later allowed them to use a secret tunnel that connected the Hog's Head to Hogwarts when the trio arrived in Hogsmeade. He subsequently fought in the Battle of Hogwarts and survived the Second Wizarding War. He continued to live in Hogsmeade, tending to his goats.

Who is Aberforth Dumbledore's son? toggle section
Aberforth's son is Aurelius Dumbledore, born after he fell in love with a girl in Godric's Hollow. However, the girl was sent away, either before or after Aurelius's birth. His son was adopted by Mary Lou Barebone and renamed Credence Barebone. Despite the rumors, Aberforth never confided in Albus about his son. They were reunited when Credence was an adult during the war against Gellert Grindelwald. Unfortunately, Aurelius' life was marked by hardship, as his nature as an Obscurial slowly poisoned him, a fate that Aberforth's brother Albus recognized from his experiences with their sister, Ariana.

What happened to Aberforth Dumbledore's parents and sister? toggle section
Aberforth's father, Percival Dumbledore, was imprisoned in Azkaban for using illegal spells on three Muggle boys who attacked Aberforth's sister, Ariana. This likely led to Aberforth, like his brother Albus, not holding Percival in high regard. Kendra Dumbledore, Aberforth's mother, was described as a good woman, but she was also secretive. Aberforth's sister, Ariana, had a tragic fate. She was unable to control her magic and during an episode, she accidentally caused an explosion that resulted in the death of their mother. Later, Ariana was inadvertently killed by a stray spell during a fight between Albus, Aberforth, and Gellert Grindelwald. He felt angry about her death and never forgave Albus whom he held responsible.

Why did Aberforth blame his brother Albus for the death of their sister, Ariana? toggle section
Aberforth blamed his brother Albus because the tragic event occurred during a three-way duel involving Aberforth, Albus, and Gellert Grindelwald. Ariana, whom Aberforth and his mother had spent years caring for, tried to intervene in the fight and was hit by a stray curse, which resulted in her death. Aberforth held Albus responsible, believing that his brother's obsession with Grindelwald and his neglect of family responsibilities led to the fatal incident. This caused a deep and lasting rift between the Dumbledore brothers.

Early life (1884-1891)[]

"They were not alike; Aberforth was never bookish and, unlike Albus, preferred to settle arguments by duelling rather than through reasoned discussion. In fairness to Aberforth, it must be admitted that living in Albus's shadow cannot have been an altogether comfortable experience."
— Description of the Dumbledore brothers[src]
Young Albus and Aberforth

Young Albus and Aberforth

Aberforth was the middle child of Percival and Kendra Dumbledore, younger brother to Albus and older brother to Ariana.[7] The family lived in Mould-on-the-Wold,[12] and Aberforth's favourite tale while growing up was Grumble the Grubby Goat.[9] The Dumbledore family was traumatised when Ariana, then six years old, was attacked by three Muggle boys who had seen her performing magic.

The attack left Ariana half-insane and unable to control her magic, turning her into an Obscurial.[8] Their father cursed the boys in retaliation, and was arrested for it. He did not reveal to the authorities the reason for his attack, as Ariana would have been taken from the family as a threat to the Statute of Secrecy and placed in St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries permanently. Percival was imprisoned in Azkaban, and Kendra moved the family to Godric's Hollow, putting out a story that Ariana was ill and needed to remain at home.[4] This story led to the assumption that Ariana was a Squib.[3]

Aberforth attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry between 1895 and 1902.[13] Unlike Albus, Aberforth preferred to solve his differences by duelling, rather than dialogue. He was in Albus's shadow, as his brother was an extraordinarily talented and academic wizard and even despite his great duelling talent, he was still incomparable to Albus in the field he specialised in.[7]

Tragedy (1891-1899)[]

"Gone. Gone forever."
— Aberforth's grief over his sister's death[src]

Aberforth was Ariana's favourite sibling, and he took part responsibility of taking care of her, along with Kendra. However, he was not at home when Ariana lost control of her magic and accidentally killed their mother. Following his mother's passing, Aberforth wanted to leave school and take over the care of his sister, but Albus would not allow it. Albus wanted his younger brother to complete his education at Hogwarts, although he bitterly resented having to abandon his grand plans.[4] By this time, Aberforth was described as a "wayward" young man, known to chuck goat dung at their neighbours and inclined to get into duels with those he had disagreements with.[14]

When Gellert Grindelwald came to Godric's Hollow, he and Albus instantly struck up a friendship, together dreaming of finding the Deathly Hallows and leading a revolution that would make Muggles subservient to wizards. Upon learning of his elder brother's ambitions, Aberforth was disgusted by such a plan, but he was also concerned as Ariana would have to be involved. When it was time for Aberforth to return to Hogwarts, he decided to finally confront Albus and Grindelwald on the impossibility of such a scheme and angrily pointed out on Albus's neglect of Ariana and that he could not be the heroic leader of the revolution with Ariana in tow, which Albus later said to have "brought him back to reality" despite not wanting to hear the truth of the words Aberforth shouted at him.

Grindelwald became furious and used the Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth. Albus tried to protect his brother and a three-way duel broke out. While the three battled, Ariana tried to help her brother, but a stray curse from one of them hit Ariana, killing her.[4] Aberforth was devastated by the death of the younger sister he and his mother spent years caring for and furiously blamed Albus for Ariana's death, going as far as to physically assault his brother at their sister's funeral and actually breaking Albus's nose, shouting that Ariana's death was his fault.[3] He didn't forgive his brother and continued to resent him for years, despite Albus's immense feelings of regret, of which Aberforth did not know until Harry revealed it to him, which allowed Aberforth to finally forgive his brother.[4]

Baby Aurelius in 1901

Baby Aurelius in 1901

That same summer, Aberforth fell in love with a girl from Godric's Hollow. Their relationship would lead to the girl having Aberforth's child. The girl was "sent away," with his son in her womb, presumably by her family. Soon enough, there were rumours of the child going around Godric's Hollow although it's unknown if Aberforth's son was born yet or not when his lover was sent away. Due to his distance from his brother, Aberforth never confided in Albus, who would later express remorse as he would've helped Aberforth and his lover had he known.[8]

Hog's Head Inn barman (Post 1899-?)[]

At some point, after his graduation from Hogwarts in 1902, Aberforth became the owner and barman of the Hog's Head Inn in Hogsmeade village.

Journey to discover his son[]

The three spells connect-

Aberforth saving his son from Grindelwald

In 1932, Albus discovered that Aurelius Dumbledore was in fact Aberforth's long-lost son from his relationship with the girl from Godric's Hollow. Although Aberforth seemed to be reluctant to get involved at first, he joined his brother and his allies in stopping Gellert Grindelwald at the walk of the Qilin. When Grindelwald fired a spell at Credence, Aberforth joined his brother in blocking the attack, saving his son's life and breaking the blood pact between Albus and Grindelwald. In the aftermath, Aberforth approached Credence, who was dying due to his nature as an Obscurial, much like Ariana was before her own death during the three-way duel.

Reunited with his son[]


Aberforth and his son, Aurelius finally rekindling

Aberforth reassured his son that he had always thought about him, and Credence accepted Aberforth's invitation to come home with him.[8]

As he offered, Aberforth then took Credence home, back to Scotland either to the Hog's Head Inn or Hogwarts Castle to be taken care of, likely via Portkey from Bhutan to look after him, despite the his son's ailing health.[15]

Tom Riddle[]

Between the years 1965 to 1971, when Tom Riddle returned to Hogwarts to apply for the Defence Against the Dark Arts post, Albus revealed that one of 'the local barmen', possibly Aberforth himself, told him about Riddle's followers awaiting him in the Hog's Head.[16]

First Wizarding War[]

Later, when the First Wizarding War broke out, Aberforth joined the Order of the Phoenix, opposing Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters.[11]

Sometime around 1975, Mundungus Fletcher was banned from Hog's Head for life. Sirius Black later noted that Aberforth had 'a good memory' for whom he had thrown out of his tavern.[17]

Order of the Phoenix

The original Order that Aberforth was a member of

In 1980, Albus visited the Hog's Head to interview Sybill Trelawney for the position of Divination professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Severus Snape, then a Death Eater, overheard part of Trelawney's prophecy about Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. Snape was unable to hear its entirety, however, as Aberforth caught him eavesdropping and threw him out.[18][19]

Between the wars[]

Aberforth Dumbledore between the wars

Around 1982, Aberforth was prosecuted by the Wizengamot for "using inappropriate charms on a goat", causing a "minor scandal", widely reported in the papers. According to his brother, Aberforth did not let the gossip get him down or force him into hiding; but Albus also jokingly claimed, as an alternative explanation, not to be completely sure Aberforth could read.[6]

During the 1988–1989 school year, Jacob's sibling visited Hog's Head Inn to ask about Mundungus Fletcher. Aberforth expressed his hatred towards Fletcher but didn't give them his whereabouts. He then presented them a letter from Albus, which was said to be given to them should they appear in Hog's Head looking lost.[20]

Second Wizarding War[]

Harry Potter: "It's... he left me a job."
Aberforth: "Did he now? Nice job, I hope? Pleasant? Easy? Sort of thing you'd expect an unqualified wizard kid to be able to do without over-stretching themselves?"
Harry Potter: "I — it's not easy, no."

B5C16M1 First meeting in the Hog's Head

Dumbledore's Army gathering in the Hog's Head

In 1995, Harry Potter and a large number of students arrived in the Hog's Head to discuss learning Defence Against the Dark Arts from Harry. This was an illegal defence group, as Dolores Umbridge forbid all group activities. Aberforth served the large group Butterbeer, even though some of the group considered ordering Firewhisky.[21] Mundungus Fletcher was also present acting as an informant for the Order of the Phoenix.

In 1996, Aberforth met with Mundungus outside the Three Broomsticks Inn, who appeared to be selling stolen goods from 12 Grimmauld Place to him; one of those items was Sirius Black's two-way mirror. The exchange was observed by Harry Potter, who attempted to confront Mundungus following Aberforth's departure.[22]

B6C30M1 funeral of Albus Dumbledore

The funeral of his older brother, Albus Dumbledore

In 1997, the Battle of the Astronomy Tower took place at Hogwarts, culminating with the death of Albus Dumbledore at the hands of Severus Snape who (although this was unknown to everyone else at the time besides the deceased Dumbledore) was working under Albus's orders. A great number of people attended his funeral, including Aberforth, Hogwarts students, professors, old friends, Hogsmeade residents, Order of the Phoenix members and Ministry of Magic officials.[23] After his brother's death, Aberforth had no family left.

The next year, since Dumbledore had died and could not protect the school from Death Eaters, Lord Voldemort managed to take over Hogwarts. Snape became Headmaster, and Alecto and Amycus Carrow, two Death Eaters, became Deputy Headmaster and Deputy Headmistress. The Carrows enjoyed punishing students, and were cruel and sadistic. They used their power to torture the students who opposed them. Aberforth's pub was used as passageway into Hogwarts to the Room of Requirement, he supplied the students in hiding with food and water.[4]

The eye in the mirror[]
"Help us! We're in the cellar of Malfoy Manor, help us!"
— Harry screaming for help into his two-way mirror[src]
Aberforth's reflection

Aberforth looking out of the mirror fragment

Aberforth came into possession of one fragment of the two-way mirror, using it to watch over Harry, just as his brother had done, through the other half. Harry was unaware of the details, but occasionally looked at the mirror, thinking the eyes might belong to Albus.[4] When Harry desperately requested help from the mirror whilst trapped at Malfoy Manor, Aberforth sent Dobby to the rescue.[24] He was sad to learn the house-elf died in action.[4]

Deciding to look for the next of Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes in the Death Eater-controlled Hogwarts Castle, Harry, Hermione, and Ron Apparated into Hogsmeade village, setting off a Caterwauling Charm that alerted Death Eaters to their arrival. As they were hidden under the Invisibility Cloak, the Death Eaters decided to send Dementors to find Harry. The Dementors, sensing fear, rapidly closed in, and Harry cast a Patronus Charm to repel them. A door creaked open behind, and Aberforth waved the trio in. Aberforth then convinced the Death Eaters that he set off the alarm by letting his cat out, and it was his goat Patronus, not Harry's stag, that they actually saw.[4]

Harry recognised the man as Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus' younger brother. Aberforth wanted them to escape the village the next morning, believing the Order of the Phoenix finished, Voldemort had already won the war, and those still fighting were only deluding themselves. When Harry refused, saying he must complete Dumbledore's mission, Aberforth berated Harry for following his brother, and asked if he knew the entire truth about him. Harry, already doubting Dumbledore's intentions, was unable to respond. With little prodding, Aberforth indicated he knew Rita Skeeter's book, and related the true story about their childhood and was shocked when Harry told him afterwards of Albus taking the Drink of Despair, which revealed how much he still suffered great remorse for his past actions.[4]


The trio talking with Aberforth before the Battle of Hogwarts

Despite hearing of Dumbledore's past, Harry intended to complete Dumbledore's mission, with or without Aberforth's help to get inside Hogwarts. While slowly forgiving his late brother after learning of Albus's remorse from Harry, Aberforth bowed to the inevitable and addressed Ariana's portrait, and she disappeared down a long, dark tunnel, soon returning with another figure; Neville Longbottom. Neville led the three back to the Room of Requirement, and alerted the Order of the Phoenix that Harry had arrived at the school. The Hog's Head then became the main transportation hub for the outgoing students and the incoming Order members prior to the Battle of Hogwarts through a secret passageway behind a portrait of his sister Ariana.[5][25]

Aberforth: "Potter! I’ve had hundreds of kids thundering through my pub, Potter!"
Harry Potter: "I know, we’re evacuating, Voldemort’s —"
Aberforth: "— attacking because they haven’t handed you over, yeah. I’m not deaf, the whole of Hogsmeade heard him. And it never occurred to any of you to keep a few Slytherins hostage? There are kids of Death Eaters you’ve just sent to safety."
Harry Potter: "It wouldn’t stop Voldemort and your brother would never have done it."
— Aberforth joins the defenders of Hogwarts during the battle[src]
The Battle of Hogwarts DHF2

Aberforth fighting in the final battle along with the other defenders of Hogwarts

Aberforth fought in the battle; he entered Hogwarts to complain to Harry about how hundreds of evacuating students were thundering through his pub, and that they should have kept some Slytherin students as hostage against parenting Death Eaters. Harry countered that it would not stop Voldemort and that Albus would never do it. Although he had already forgiven his brother, Aberforth sneered at the latter theory before leaving to defend the castle.[10]

During the battle, he offered encouragement to Ginny when she fought some Death Eaters. When Tonks asked if he had seen Remus, Aberforth replied that he was last seen duelling Dolohov.[10] In the renewed battle, Aberforth stunned Rookwood as he headed into the Great Hall.[26]

After the war[]

Aberforth survived the final battle of the Second Wizarding War. After the battle, he talked with Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan while in the Great Hall.[27] He later returned to his former life at the Hog's Head with his goats.[28]

Problems in Hogsmeade[]
Aberforth Dumbledore - MA

Aberforth in 2010

In December 2010, Aberforth was in the Three Broomsticks Inn and helped Rosmerta confront Renka, who was trying to put anti-werewolf posters up. There had been problems in the village like break-ins, a strange fog and the lights going on and off, for which she blamed the werewolves. He told Renka that the Ministry had better things to worry about than putting officials on every corner of the village and called her out for fear-mongering, causing her to storm out of the pub.[29]

Later, Aberforth saw Renka leading a rally in the village after another night of break-ins and a student and their friend, Abigail Grey, arguing with her. He told Renka to stop and that she had made her point. When she left, he advised the students to be smarter with their approach to Renka and that they were only making her worse by arguing with her. He thought she would show her true colours on her own in the end. Abigail called him a coward and told him she wasn't going to do nothing. He decided to let her off with her rude comment because she did not know him. He told her he had supported werewolf rights since long before she was born and that he would intervene if Renka went too far. He also warned them both to stay out of the situation.[30]

The next day, the student and Abigail visited the Hog's Head Inn. Aberforth asked why they were there and if they were up to trouble. The student responded that it depended on what he meant by trouble. They noticed a cloaked wizard sitting on the table nearby. Aberforth told them the bloke was deaf and it was free to talk around him. Abigail admitted they were investigating the break-ins. After telling Aberforth the evidence looked like werewolves wrre responsible, Abigail pointed out that the break-ins happened when there wasn't a full moon. The student told Aberforth they thought someone was trying to frame werewolves before trying to suggest it could be Renka.[31]

Aberforth told them to be careful because if it was a witch or wizard, they were constant danger compared to werewolves once a month. He told them to leave it to him. Abigail asked if he thought Renka could be responsible. He called Renka devious and angry that her shop closed down even though she sold ugly house-elf figurines that no self-respecting wizard would have in their home. He told them if they were going to accuse Renka, they needed proof because she can be very persuasive. He sent them away to get their shopping and to enjoy the snow.[31]

Before they left, the student informed him about previous night when they were collecting aconite in the Forbidden Forest and saw a cloaked wizard collecting it too. He called it further proof they could run into danger. When they left, he turned to the cloaked wizard at the table and asked if he heard everything, revealing he had lied that the wizard was deaf. The wizard told Aberforth they were getting too close which had to stop.[31]

Aberforth had been letting Gerard Grey and his pack hide in the cellar of Hog's Head after Renka started causing trouble. When he heard Renka shouting in Madam Puddifoot's, he listened to her accuse Abigail of being a werewolf. To her surprise, Aberforth stepped in to tell her to stop. Renka demanded that he stay out of it but he told her she had gone too far and now he had to get involved. He told the villagers that they should stop listening to hatred and realise werewolves are only people, no better or worst than everyone else. After telling her they shouldn't let fear cloud their greater natures, Renka started shouting that fear had nothing to do with these beasts being dangerous who destroy everything. When Renka ran off, Aberforth apologised to the student and Abigail for having to witness that. Abigail told him it was okay because she was used to it but he thought it was wrong that her kind had to put up with this and that they shouldn't have to hide. The student asked if they should do anything else about Renka but he warned them not to while the only thing Renka had were her words and that he would keep an eye on her for now. He patted Abigail on the head and left.[31]

The Calamity[]

During the Calamity, Aberforth came across volunteers from the SOS Task Force in Hogsmeade, and showed them his version of the Proficiency Charm.

Physical description[]

"The barman grunted. Harry approached him, looking up into the face, trying to see past the long, stringy, wiry grey hair and beard. He wore spectacles. Behind the dirty lenses, the eyes were a piercing, brilliant blue."
— Description of Aberforth[src]

Aberforth Dumbledore was tall and thin, with a great deal of long, stringy grey hair and beard. His eyes were of a brilliant, soul-piercing shade of blue, and usually hidden behind the dirty lenses of his spectacles. While they carried some noticeable brotherly resemblance, his more casual attire and often grumpy disposition made him appear considerably less conspicuous than Albus. He often wore an apron.[4]

Personality and traits[]

Ron Weasley: "The silver doe. Was that you too?... Someone sent a doe Patronus to us!"
Aberforth: "Brains like that, you could be a Death Eater, son. Haven't I just proven my Patronus is a goat?"
— Aberforth mocking Ron Weasley[src]

Aberforth was regarded by most people who were familiar with him as being odd and gruff. Alastor Moody, who met him at the taking of the photo of the original Order, only described him as a "strange bloke".[11] He had a curious obsession with goats, which was seen by some to be inappropriate,[6] and dealt with a great many dodgy customers at the Hog's Head Inn.[11] He also had a long memory; he once placed a lifetime ban from the Hog's Head on Mundungus Fletcher for offending him.[17] Aberforth had a sharp wit and was a highly talented duellist, though he had no interest in academic matters. It is suggested that Aberforth was illiterate, hence why he did not let the scandal of him practising inappropriate charms on a goat upset him. Despite not being as intelligent as his brother, he seemed to know what Horcruxes were when told about the hunt, suggesting a greater intelligence than he let on. He was a very terse person, commenting that the trio were being "Bloody fools".[4][10]

Aberforth generally seemed cynical and bad-tempered, such as when he sarcastically pointed out to Harry Potter how little Albus Dumbledore had really told him even while putting an enormous responsibility on his shoulders. However, despite this, Aberforth proved himself worthy of being a Gryffindor, displaying an astonishing amount of bravery and remarkable amount of morality that held firm even when it came to his family despite his cynical and rough personality, with Albus describing Aberforth as ultimately an "infinitely more admirable" man than he ever was.

For example, although it was Muggles who traumatised his sister, Aberforth never discriminated against them. He found the thought of Albus and Grindelwald's quest for Muggle domination as being absolutely disgusting. It was the overall amount of damage that would be caused by such quest that he found disgusting. He even went as far as to duel both of them at once, despite knowing fully well they were superior duellists who he would certainly not stand a chance against. His magic was being amplified by the anger and determination he felt to hold them at bay, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that he previously had been subjected to the Cruciatus Curse by Grindelwald.

In addition, Aberforth would join the Order of the Phoenix despite it being led by the older brother who he so disliked for his glory-seeking, and blaming him for their younger sister's tragic death, indicating he was willing to overcome his grudge towards his brother to fight for the whole wizarding world and prevent the creation of a new order that would see Muggles either enslaved or indiscriminately massacred, further showing his morality. Although he never forgave Albus for years, Aberforth still considered Albus his brother and maintained contact with him, with their relationship being deemed cordial by Elphias Doge, and Aberforth joined the Order of the Phoenix, which Albus founded and led, and attended Albus's funeral. Also, in spite of claiming earlier that "You-Know-Who's won, it's over, and anyone who's pretending different's kidding themselves" and also showing still his resentment of Albus's true nature, Aberforth was shocked into silence as he contemplated what Harry had revealed: that Albus had never forgiven himself for Ariana's death and was always tortured by the fact that he was responsible for it.

Ultimately forgiving his brother, Aberforth then fought bravely and selflessly at the Battle of Hogwarts, which may be out of a desire to honour his older brother's memory by protecting the school Albus had led for so long, possibly sparked by the regret of never even considering Albus had regretted Ariana's death and also that he never managed to reconcile with his brother. In addition, he appeared to consider the possibility that his brother would never resort to having Slytherin students held as ransom against their Death Eater parents and guardians before sneering at the idea. His unwillingly courageous nature shows itself in one of his last conversations with Harry; after Harry thanked him for saving his and his friends' lives twice, Aberforth gruffly retorted, "Look after 'em, then. I might not be able to save 'em a third time".[4]

Aberforth was rather willing to use underhanded tactics against his foes, as he suggested to Harry to hold Slytherin students hostage against their parents who also served as Death Eaters.[10]

Magical abilities and skills[]

Aberforth Dumbledore Goat Patronus

Aberforth's goat Patronus

Though he did not have his brother Albus' prestigious gifts, Aberforth was still a Dumbledore and thus a very talented and powerful wizard. This was proven through his history with Gellert Grindelwald and his participation in and subsequent survival of the First and Second Wizarding Wars, the latter of which included the legendary Battle of Hogwarts.

  • Wizard's Chess: Aberforth Dumbledore was capable of using the seemingly unbeatable Dragon Variation of the Slytherin Defence against the eminent wizard chess master, Brian Gagwilde, thus defeating Gagwilde and forcing him to give up chess for the rest of his life. It can thus be assumed that Aberforth was a highly competent and logical player capable of leading his pieces to victory.[32]
  • Charms: Aberforth Dumbledore invented a charm to keep a goat clean and its horns curly. Though he was prosecuted because that charm was considered inappropriate, it was still a testament of sorts to his being skilled in charms.[6] Aberforth was also able to conjure a corporeal Patronus, which is incredibly advanced and powerful magic as well as proof of superior magical ability. His Patronus took the corporeal form of a goat.[4]
  • Duelling: During his school years, Aberforth was said to prefer to settle things by duelling instead of negotiating,[7] which shows that, even as a student, he was already an active and experienced duellist, although his brother was still superior to him, noted to have the ability to put Aberforth in his place had he wanted to. Despite this, by the age of fifteen, his duelling skills were already sufficient to stand his ground in the three-way duel between himself, Albus, and Gellert Grindelwald when they were teenagers, both of whom were masterful duellists.[4] Older Aberforth's duelling ability was so strong that he, along with his brother, were able to block a Killing Curse (a conventionally unblockable curse) cast by the Elder Wand, the most powerful wand ever to exist, a feat of magic that would normally be impossible even for the most skilled wizards. Aberforth also noted the reason he did not face Patricia Rakepick, an infamously powerful individual, in battle when she came to his pub was not because he was afraid of facing her but because she would have disappeared without any traces for him to inform the Auror Office about, showing he was assured of his ability to at least fight against the dark witch long enough for reinforcements to come. During the Battle of Hogwarts he fought courageously and defeated the very skilled Death Eater Augustus Rookwood[10] and emerged as one of the survivors,[27][28] showing him to have been remarkably proficient in martial magic to have survived such a bloody battle.
  • Nonverbal magic: Aberforth could cast spells without saying their incantations at ease, as he was able to nonverbally block Grindelwald's green spell with another.[8]
  • Care of Magical Creatures: Although Aberforth's passion was in goat herding (a non-magical care), he still showed an impressive ability in "creature care" by nursing a baby Qilin (the most sacred creature of the wizarding world), earning Bunty Broadacre's respect.
  • Legilimency (possibly): Harry once described him as having the same piercing look as his brother.[4] Given that Albus usually had this look when performing Legilimency, it's possible that Aberforth did the same.
  • Defence Against the Dark Arts: Aberforth Dumbledore, in addition to being talented in every field, was also talented in Defence Against the Dark Arts thanks to the lessons he took at school. He could use curses at a high level.


Dumbledore family[]


Percival and Kendra Dumbledore

Percival and Kendra Dumbledore, his parents

Aberforth's relationship with his parents is not very well known. His father was imprisoned in Azkaban after he used illegal spells on three Muggle boys who attacked Ariana. Because of this, it's likely that, like Albus, Aberforth did not hold Percival in high regard.

His mother was described as a good woman, but Aberforth knew her secretive nature and bitterly described himself and Albus as having learned lies and secrets from her, though he undoubtably understood that the secrecy was all in the name of Ariana's safety. Nevertheless, when Kendra was accidentally killed by Ariana, Aberforth's bitterness did not prevent him from being devastated by her death, judging from the grief and sadness with which he described the event.[4]

Ariana Dumbledore[]

"I was her favourite... She liked me best. I could get her to eat when she wouldn't do it for my mother, I could calm her down, when she was in one of her rages, and when she was quiet, she used to help me feed the goats."
— Aberforth regarding his relationship with his sister[src]

Aberforth's portrait of Ariana

Aberforth Dumbledore was Ariana Dumbledore's older brother. She seemed to have preferred him rather than their eldest brother, Albus Dumbledore. After her attack, Aberforth was the only one who could calm her down when she flew into a rage, something even their mother could not always accomplish. The two often fed goats together in their free time. Aberforth was not present when Ariana lost control of her magic and accidentally killed their mother. He believed that he would have been able to prevent the death of his mother. After the unfortunate incident, he wanted to take care of Ariana, but their older brother Albus insisted that Aberforth complete his education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry first.

Soon after, Albus became friends with Gellert Grindelwald, and Aberforth stepped in when they began making plans for world domination and Muggle subjugation, pointing out that Ariana was in no state to be dragged along with them. This resulted in a three-way duel between Ariana's brothers and Grindelwald. Ariana tried to interfere, and was inadvertently killed by one of them, which devastated Aberforth and caused an unending rift between him and Albus. It is unknown who actually cast the spell which led to her death. At Ariana's funeral, Aberforth broke his brother's nose and shouted at him that her death was all his fault. Long after Ariana's death, Aberforth continued to keep a portrait of his late sister in the Hog's Head Inn, symbolising his affection for her. It concealed a secret passage to the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Castle.[4]

Albus Dumbledore[]

Dumbledore: "Then if I were to go to the Hog's Head tonight, I would not find a group of them — Nott, Rosier, Mulciber, Dolohov — awaiting your return?..."
Tom Riddle: "You are omniscient as ever, Dumbledore."
Dumbledore: "Oh no, merely friendly with the local barmen."
— Dumbledore talking about his brother Aberforth[src]

Albus Dumbledore, Aberforth's brother

Aberforth and his brother had a strained, often acrimonious, relationship most of their lives. Aberforth was resentful and bitter about the fact that he was living under Albus's shadow due to Albus's superior magical capabilities and spent most of his time caring for his sick younger sister, Ariana. After the death of Kendra Dumbledore, Albus was left to care for his brother and sister and the two remained as strained as ever, as while Albus insisted that Aberforth complete his education, Aberforth disliked the way Albus was treating Ariana.

When Albus and his friend, Gellert Grindelwald, began planning to start a revolution, Aberforth and Albus grew even more estranged as Aberforth was disgusted by his older brother's ambitions and this soon escalated to the point that Aberforth angrily confronted Albus and bluntly told him that Ariana would not be accompanying and his plans were impossible, resulting in Grindelwald initiating a duel that resulted in Ariana's death, which finally caused Albus and Aberforth to become fully estranged, as Aberforth felt extreme amount of anger at Albus and he fully blamed him for Ariana's death,[4] shouting at him at Ariana's funeral and breaking his nose.[3]

In later years, Aberforth had, if not completely reconciled with his older brother, agreed to make an effort to remain on civil terms with him: By 1932, Aberforth was routinely receiving visits from and shared meals with Albus in his private rooms above the Hog's Head Inn; although their time together was somewhat soured by uncomfortable silences because they had little in common apart from their family history; a topic that Aberforth was jaded with and not interested in revisiting since it brought up painful memories, and because he knew it just as well as Albus did. It would seem, however, that if nothing else, Aberforth still appreciated the effort on Albus's part, as he was greatly annoyed when their meals was interrupted.[33]

Nor was Aberforth unwilling to fulfil his brotherly obligation towards Albus and loyally support and help him when it mattered, which he did by using his position as the landlord of an establishment notorious for being a gathering place for dodgy characters to gather intelligence on people whom Albus mistrusted or otherwise wanted to keep an eye on that visited his establishment, such as Tom Riddle.[34] As such, he was a valuable source of information to the Order of the Phoenix after he joined the secret society after the outbreak of the First Wizarding War. He also respected him enough to attend his brother's funeral in 1997.[35]

Although Albus initially was resentful towards Aberforth for dragging him down from fame and glory with the responsibility of being head of the family, Albus loved his brother dearly, and came to respect and admire him greatly for his devotion to Ariana. However, despite Albus being known to feel sadness for his estrangement with his younger brother, he never attempted to change Aberforth's opinions of him, likely as he recognised that he fully deserved Aberforth's resentment and accepted it as punishment for his part in the tragic death of Ariana. But he did have a desire to reconcile with Aberforth, as whenever he looked at the Mirror of Erised, he would see Aberforth reconciled with him. While he still bitterly resented Albus even after the death of his older brother, Aberforth eventually forgave his late brother after Harry explained Albus' forced vision of his worst fear, Aberforth and Ariana being tortured and killed by Grindelwald, after he drank the Drink of Despair, and fought in the defence of his brother's school; the first of the Hogsmeade residents to do so.

Credence Barebone[]

Aurelius Dumbledore, his son

Aberforth conceived his son, named Aurelius, with his lover around the summer the romance between his brother Albus and Gellert Grindelwald occurred. Aberforth likely did not know what to do about the boy after the girl from the hollow fell pregnant and was "sent away", and certainly did not feel he could confide in Albus due to their strained relationship. Over the ensuing years after this, however, as Aberforth claimed to Credence upon formally meeting him for the first time, he had always thought about his son and what had become of him.

In 1932, in Nurmengard, Aberforth communicated with Credence through a mirror. After his encounter with his uncle Albus Dumbledore, Credence managed to send another message to Aberforth at the Hog's Head Inn, saying that he "wanted to come home". The same evening, Aberforth learned from Albus that Credence was his son. Later, Aberforth had travelled to Bhutan to find his son. He witnessed Credence helped Bunty Broadacre and Newt expose Grindelwald's attempts to become the new Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards. After Credence betrayed him, Grindelwald tried to murder the young man with the Killing Curse. However, Aberforth and his brother blocked the attempt, saving Credence and breaking the blood pact. After that, Aberforth was able to carry Credence down the stairs so he could sit down. Credence asked his father if he had ever thought of him and Aberforth assured Credence that he always had. Credence nodded choosing to accept his father's invitation to go home with him. Aberforth picked up and carried him down the stairs of The Eyrie, followed by his phoenix.

Afterwards, Aberforth took Credence back home with him to look after him, despite his poor health.

Gellert Grindelwald[]

"And now a positively dangerous look crept over Aberforth's face."
— Aberforth's reaction upon remembering Grindelwald[src]
Gellert Grindelwald SODM 2

Gellert Grindelwald, his enemy

Aberforth detested Gellert Grindelwald immensely. Grindelwald was Albus's friend after Hogwarts. While Aberforth was taking care of Ariana, Albus and Grindelwald were planning to enslave the Muggles. As the two boys were planning to travel around the world, they also planned to take Ariana with them. Aberforth opposed them, telling them that they were being irresponsible and that he would be able to take care of Ariana once more. Grindelwald became very angry and used the Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth; Albus then defended his brother and the three boys began to duel. None of the three ever knew who had cast the fatal spell, but by the end of the duel, Ariana lay dead on the floor. Grindelwald immediately fled the country; the two brothers both lived the rest of their lives with the fear that they had cast the spell that killed their sister.

Aberforth retained bitter feelings towards Grindelwald for many years after their fateful encounter, and when he recounted the events that led to his sister's death Harry noted the "positively dangerous" look that came over his face when Grindelwald's name was mentioned.[4] It is unknown how he reacted, or even if he ever knew, of Grindelwald's death at Voldemort's hands, nor if he ever discovered Grindelwald's last act was to attempt to stop Voldemort from violating Albus's grave.

Harry Potter[]

Harry Potter: "We're not leaving. We need to get into Hogwarts."
Aberforth: "Don't be stupid, boy."
Harry Potter: "We've got to."
Aberforth: "What you've got to do, is to get as far from here as you can."
— Harry Potter to Aberforth Dumbledore[src]
Harry Potter

Harry Potter

Aberforth became friends with Harry Potter before the Battle of Hogwarts. Aberforth had previously helped Harry, Ron and Hermione while they were captured by Bellatrix Lestrange and other Death Eaters at Malfoy Manor.[24] Aberforth's possession of one of the two-way mirrors became a great help to Harry and his companions.[4] It can be said that if Aberforth did not have the mirror and had not sent Dobby to the Trio's aid then Harry and his friends would have most likely died at Malfoy Manor.[24]

Aberforth later saved Harry, Ron and Hermione again after they accidentally activated a Caterwauling Charm when apparating into Hogsmeade, and Harry was grateful to Aberforth afterwards for saving their lives twice. Aberforth narrated to Harry the story of his early life. Harry pitied him, and was almost devastated when he heard it all, although he then revealed the remorse which his brother Albus suffered over his past actions, prompting Aberforth to finally forgive his late brother. Harry also argued with Aberforth when he told Harry to leave Hogsmeade, in order to save his own skin. However, they later both fought at the Battle of Hogwarts and survived the war. It is conceivable that they remained in contact afterwards.[4]

Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger[]


Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger

Aberforth met Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in 1998, before the Battle of Hogwarts. As Ron and Hermione were Harry's friends, they visited Hogsmeade in order to get into Hogwarts. Aberforth helped them, while telling them the story of his family life. Ron and Hermione were both shocked and highly sympathetic to his plight. They later fought at the Battle of Hogwarts with Aberforth and they all survived the war. It is possible that they remained in contact later on.[4]


Aberforth Dumbledore: "Thought he'd be with you. Where've you left him?"
Harry Potter: "He's dead. Bellatrix Lestrange killed him."
Aberforth Dumbledore: "I'm sorry to hear it. I liked that elf."
— Aberforth and Harry Potter discussing Dobby's fate[src]


Over the course of his employment at Hogwarts, Dobby, a house-elf, became close friends with Aberforth, and spent much time at Aberforth's home in Hogsmeade, getting to and from the school through a secret tunnel. As Aberforth was an old and grumpy person, he did not have a good relationship with many people. However, Aberforth himself stated that he liked Dobby and was sad about his death.

In 1998, Harry Potter and his friends were captured by Snatchers and imprisoned at the Malfoy Manor cellar. Harry asked for help while looking at a two-way mirror; Aberforth had the other mirror. He sent Dobby to rescue them; the house-elf did so, but was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange.[4]

Order of the Phoenix members[]

Order of the Phoenix

The original Order of the Phoenix

Although he had a good relationship with some members of the Order of the Phoenix, Aberforth was described as a "strange bloke" by Alastor Moody.[11] He also fought in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998. Aberforth seemed to know Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks and Fred and George Weasley. He saw Lupin fighting with Antonin Dolohov and he told Tonks so. He met many allies of the Order during the Battle of Hogwarts, when many people were getting into Hogwarts through a portrait-hole in a room of his pub.[10]

Aberforth had a mixed relationship with Mundungus Fletcher. While Aberforth banned Mundungus for life from the bar for offending him,[17] the two remained in touch, with Mundungus selling stolen goods to Aberforth.[22]

He did not seem to have a very high opinion of Elphias Doge for his hero worshipping Albus both as students and later in life.

Aberforth apparently knew Minerva McGonagall rather well and the two seem to have been on a first-name basis. When Aberforth realised it was Minerva he had called a "stupid sod" when she came knocking, he immediately apologised, which she accepted.[8]


In Welsh, Aberforth means "from the river".[36] Also, in Old English, Aber means "the river mouth", and would look like Æbber when written in Old English.

Dumbledore is Old English for "bumblebee". When breaking down the etymology of Dumbledore, dora is the Old English word for humble-bee, which became dore or dorre in Middle English.
