Harry Potter series turned 20 this year and most of us can not contain our happiness and nostalgia. On 26th of June, 20 years back, the first edition of Harry Potter and the philosophers stone was published and it changed our childhood in ways more than one, all of which were as beautiful as it gets.
Here is a list of 5 most powerful wizards and witches from the magical world of Harry Potter:
5. Minerva Mcgonagall
Following the demise of Albus Dumbledore, Professor Minerva McGonagall took his place and held her ground against the second wizarding war, she did not defeat Voldemort but fought him and lived to tell the tale.
4. Severus Snape
The debate over the topic whether Severus Snape turned out to be good at end or his gloomy past overshadowed his good actions can wait for a while. No matter what you say about him, you can not deny the fact that the guy knew his stuff. Severus Snape due to the power of his loyalty, even without his will, stands to be the wizard who killed Albus Dumbledore, the mighty Dumbledore.
3. Gellert Grindelwald
Before Lord Voldemort took over, the wizarding world shivered with the horror of Gellert Grindelwald and no one in the wizarding world would ever deny that Grindelwald was one of the strongest dark wizards to ever live. Though it can’t be settled whether Grindelwald or Voldemort win the title of the most powerful notorious wizard because Grindelwald was killed at the hands of Voldemort, but when Voldemort killed him, Grindelwald was in prison and unarmed.
2. Lord Voldemort
Tom Marvolo Riddle, also known as, Lord Voldemort, was so powerful and terrifying that the people in the wizarding world did not pronounce his name for decades. He was known as, “He Who Must Not Be Named”. The horror he inflicted and the monstrosity he showed could not be compared to anything in the wizarding world and he was able to do that only because of his powers.
1. Albus Dumbledore
Of Course, the list is topped by none other than Albus Dumbledore. Whether Dumbledore is more powerful or Lord Voldemort has always been a matter of debate, but J. K. Rowling taught us that the good triumphs over bad, hence Albus Dumbledore.
