Will teachers ever be intimidated by brilliant students?

Albus Dumbledore

professorAlbus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, (Order of Merlin First Class, Warlocks, Very High Beast, International Association of Wizards[17]) (* August[18]1881[19]; † June 30, 1997[19]) was an English half-blood wizard, professor of Defense Against the Dark Arts, later professor of transmutation, and later director of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Professor Dumbledore was also a very big animal of the International Union of Wizards (? -1995) and head of the Wizengamot (? -1995; 1996-1997). He was a half-blood wizard who was considered the greatest wizard of modern times, perhaps of all time. He was the son of Percival and Kendra Dumbledore and the older brother of Aberforth, Aurelius and Ariana. His father died in Azkaban when Dumbledore was young, while his mother was later accidentally killed by his sister. In the three-way duel with Aberforth and Grindelwald, he also lost Ariana. His early losses had a profound effect on him and made him a better and, above all, wiser person.

Although Dumbledore was initially unable to take Gellert Grindelwald directly, he sent Newt Scamander to New York to release Thunderbird Frank and later to Paris to save Credence Barebone. After the tragic death of Leta Lestrange in Paris, Dumbledore was determined to provide helpful advice to the resistance against Grindelwald, especially Newt, Theseus, Tina, Jacob, Yusuf and Nagini in the global wizarding war. Originally, Grindelwald intended to use the obscurial relative, Aurelius Dumbledore, as a weapon against Dumbledore.

After the Wizarding War and the end of the Greater Welfare Revolution, Dumbledore became famous for his victory over Gellert Grindelwald, the discovery of the twelve uses of Dragon's Blood and his work on alchemy with Nicolas Flamel.

Resistance to the rise of Lord Voldemort was formed through Dumbledore. He founded the Order of the Phoenix who fought against Voldmort during the First Wizarding War. After the sudden return of Voldemort and the start of the Second Wizarding War, but before the resignation of Cornelius Fudge, Dumbledore quickly formed and led the Second Order of the Phoenix. He supported many students such as Jacob's siblings and later the trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione during their first six years at Hogwarts. The trio also formed the so-called Dumbledore's Army in honor of him and his skill.

Due to the fact that he had a keen mind and legendary power, Dumbledore became the only wizard Voldemort ever feared. He was the owner and master of the Elder Wand from 1945 until his death and was considered by many to be Hogwarts' finest headmaster. When he was about to die at Gaunt's rings, Dumbledore planned his own death with Severus Snape. According to the plan, Dumbledore was killed by Snape during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.

Although he was no longer alive at this point, Lord Voldemort was finally defeated by Dumbledore's manipulations and a lasting peace was restored to the wizarding world. Dumbledore is the only Headmaster buried on Hogwarts grounds. Albus Dumbledore's portrait is still at Hogwarts. Harry Potter later named his second son Albus Severus Potter after Dumbledore.
