Dumbledore/Grindelwald, also known as Grindeldore or Greater Good, is a canon slash ship involving Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald.

Dumbledore's love for Grindelwald is the first homosexual relationship in Potterverse confirmed by J. K. Rowling (CH). The ship began to gather followers shortly after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows; fans of the ship began gathering, among other places, in LiveJournal communities such as grindeldore. This started before the seventh book's official release, after the carpet book leak.

Information that Rowling has thus far provided in interviews limits Dumbledore and Grindelwald's interaction to the summer of 1899, which they spent as teenagers in the village of Godric's Hollow. They met once more, in 1945, and duelled. Dumbledore won the duel, and imprisoned Grindelwald in the fortress of Nurmengard (DH18), where he was to die in 1998 (DH23), almost a year after Albus' demise in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower (HBP27).
