Beedle the Bard was a fiftheenth-century wizarding writer, responsible for a number of tales; it is said that he wrote all the popular wizarding children's tales (analogous to Muggle fairytales). His stories are compiled in The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which was originally written in runes (DH7).

Stories attributed to Beedle include The Fountain of Fair Fortune, The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump, The Warlock's Hairy Heart, and The Tale of the Three Brothers (DH7, DH21). Many of Beedle's tales have morals meant to instruct young children (DH21).

Beedle was born in Yorkshire. Not much is known about his life or appearance; only one woodcut exists, which shows him with a splendid beard. Taking his stories as an indicator of his opinions, he seems to have held Muggles in higher esteem than most of his contemporaries (BBi).
