Gellert Grindelwald, who was a talented student in Durmstrang, had been expelled for his very dangerous experiments about Dark Arts. He decided to stay with his great-aunt Bathilda Bagshot. Bathilda knew Albus Dumbledore was a talented boy, too so she met Grindelwald with Albus Dumbledore. They liked each other, they were intelligent, talented and they wanted to rule Muggles with their magic. They decided to search for the Deathly Hallows, which could make them invincible. While Albus was getting ready, his brother Aberforth said that he can't leave his little sister Ariana.

When Aberforth confronted his brother, Gellert lost control, displaying the "darker side" of his nature that Albus had always attempted to ignore or deny. He attacked Aberforth, supposedly using the Cruciatus Curse, and Albus stepped in, attempting to defend his younger brother and stop the two fighting. This intervention subsequently turned into a three-way duel between Albus, Aberforth and Gellert.

Over the course of the fight, the three began to use Killing Curses. While they failed to hit each other, Ariana Dumbledore, who had witnessed the duel, was killed by a stray curse. Although Grindelwald fled, fearing retribution, none of the three participants actually knew who had cast the fatal curse.

Grindelwald ran away from Godric's Hollow, fled Britain and strated the search for the Deathly Hallows alone. Albus and Aberforth had guilty conscience for their sister's death, especially Albus. Aberforth charged this death to his brother. They had a funeral for her. During the funeral, Aberforth broke Albus's nose. For ninety-eight years afterward, the results of this duel haunted Albus. He never knew who had in fact uttered the curse that had killed his sister. This had produced fear in Dumbledore, causing him to take forty-six years to finally stop Grindelwald.
