#5- Dumbledore’s (Other) Brother

Feature Detail

In Fantastic Beasts 2, we learn that Ezra Miller’s Credence Barebone is actually Aurelius Dumbledore, the brother of Albus Dumbledore. This presents a bit of a problem, though. We previously learned that Albus had two siblings: Aberforth and Ariana. It seems odd that we’re only now learning of a fourth Dumbledore. Furthermore, Albus’ father died in Azkaban sometime after 1890, while his mother died in 1899, both of which predate Credence Barebone’s birth year of 1901 by a noticeable amount of time.
