Harry Potter was a series I never got around to but once I did, I really enjoyed it!

The Harry Potter fandom has inspired tons of meme's, GIFS, and fan theories! I came across a fan theory on Tumblr which blew my mind, but to understand... To understand this theory you will need to remember the scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part I.

When Heromine tells us the 'The Tale of the Three Brothers.' For those who don't remember what happened in the tale, there were three brothers and they came across a river which they couldn't pass. They simply waved their wand and a bridge was created. Before they were able to cross they were blocked by a hooded figure who was Death. Death felt cheated because normally people will tend to fall in the river and drown. Death was cunning, so he offered each of them a prize.

The oldest asked for a wand more powerful than any other wand

The first brother was drunk with the power given to him, but that night, another wizard took his wand and slit his throat for good measure.

The second one asked for the power to recall loved ones from the grave

He used it to find the girl he onced love before her death, but she turned sad and cold because she didn't feel like she belong in an immortal world. Driven mad, he killed himself to join he, so Death took the second brother.

The third brother asked for a cloak of invasibility.

As for the third brother, Death was never able to find him. The third brother grew old and then he passed it on to his son. He then greeted him as an old friend and departed with him.

Fans speculate that:

Voldmerte is the oldest brother

Snape is the second

Harry is the third

And Dumbledore is...

Well this lead me to the theory!

Has your mind been blown? Have any theories of your own?
