Pottermore Takes Us to Dumbledore's Funeral, Celebrates His Accomplishments in New Writing

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling released her final 12 Days of Christmas Pottermore series today, which focused on the death of Albus Dumbledore and his accomplishments as one of the greatest wizards of all time.

“In our final Moment from Half-Blood Prince join students, teachers and magical creatures and say farewell to the beloved Professor Dumbledore in the Moment ‘The Funeral’,” part of the new writing read. “In honour of the much-loved Headmaster, today’s surprise celebrates one of the many achievements of this great man – the Order of Merlin. Discover more about this award’s most prestigious [and some less salubrious] recipients in one more piece of new writing by J.K. Rowling.”

We are then taken to “The Funeral” where we hear a portion of “Half-Blood Prince” read aloud and see the attendees at Dumbledore’s funeral.

J.K. also released a piece of writing titled “Order of Merlin.”

“The Order of Merlin [sometimes abbreviated to O.M.] is awarded by the Wizengamot, an organisation that predates the Ministry of Magic and nowadays functions as a combination of court and parliament. The Order comprises a handsome golden medal on a green ribbon [First Class], purple ribbon [Second Class] or white ribbon [Third Class].”

“While nobody argued when Albus Dumbledore received his O.M. [First Class] for defeating the Dark wizard Grindelwald, there was a good deal of muttering in the wizarding community when Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic, awarded himself an O.M. [First Class] for a career that many considered less than distinguished. Other less worthy recipients of the highest class of order include Arcturus Black, Sirius Black’s grandfather, who was widely believed to have bought it by loaning the Ministry a large amount of gold.”
