"While I busied myself with the training of young wizards, Grindelwald was raising an army."
Albus Dumbledore[src]

An army of wizards and witches followed the Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the early twentieth century. They sought to create a worldwide wizarding empire, which would overturn the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy and force the Muggle population into slavery under their motto: "For the Greater Good" At the centrepiece of this cruel plan was the Deathly Hallows, which, united, Grindelwald believed would make him and his followers invincible.

After a number of years terrorising Europe, the army's leader, Grindelwald, was defeated by Albus Dumbledore. While the army's status at this time is unknown, it can be assumed that the remaining members were hunted down and arrested by wizarding authorities, or killed for resisting.
