The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore

From UnknowableWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore is a book by Rita Skeeter, published four weeks after Albus Dumbledore's death. She tries to discredit him as much as possible, questioning the view of him that most people in wizarding Britain had. She attempted to dig up the skeletons in Albus' closet, and put a negative twist on them (DH2).

Elphias Doge, who refused to be interviewed for the book, states in an interview for the Daily Prophet that it contains less facts than a Chocolate Frog card (DH2).

Dolores Umbridge owns a copy of the book; Harry sees it in her office, and notices a photo of Albus with Grindelwald (DH13) which he later identifies (DH17, DH24).

Bathilda Bagshot

One of Rita's main sources was Bathilda Bagshot, who lived in Godric's Hollow, close to the Dumbledores (DH8). Skeeter used Veritaserum to obtain information from Bathilda, and sends a copy to Godric's Hollow with a thank-you note. Hermione eventually removes this copy from Bagshot's house; in it, Harry finally reads the caption of Grindelwald's photo, and realises that Gellert is the thief who stole the Elder Wand from Gregorovitch (DH18).
