- What did Voldemort want from Grindelwald?
- Why didnt Grindelwald help Voldemort?
- Was Voldemort more powerful than Grindelwald?
Voldemort broke into the prison Nurmengard Castle, where Gellert Grindelwald was being held, and demanded to know the location of the Elder Wand. It was only during the confrontation in Grindelwald’s cell that Voldemort learned Albus Dumbledore had claimed the wand in a duel decades back.
Grindelwald would not believe that Voldemorts cause was glorious, nor would he fear him. He would probably treat Voldemort with the same lack of fear or intimidation that Dumbledore did. Therefore, Voldemort would have no power over Grindelwald.
We’re not really given much information about what Grindlewald did leading up to the famous duel with Dumbledore. Voldemort was more powerful than Grindelwald because: Voldemort’s bloodline was far more powerful. He was the last descendant of Salazar Slytherin.
