They both love Bertie Botts, they both have long fingers, share a left-leg injury, like Chocolate Frog Cards, and have naturally red hair.

    I didn't know that Ron had a left-leg injury (he has arm injury per scifi.stackexchange.com/q/28054/4918 , and an apparition accident affecting his hand). Do you have a reference for that? I also didn't know that Professor Dumbledore had naturally red hair: he already has grey hair in Philosopher's Stone. – b_jonas Apr 3 '17 at 17:11

    The thing is, Ron isn’t smart enough to be Dumbledore. Not to mention that Dumbledore’s whole family history is well-known among those old enough to remember. – Adamant Apr 3 '17 at 17:20

    @b_jonas The Whomping Willow broke his leg in book three I think – tobiasvl Apr 4 '17 at 1:56

False. Confirmed by J.K. Rowling herself on Twitter.

Samantha: Dear @jk_rowling: Ron is a time-traveling Dumbledore -- fact or theory?

J.K. Rowling: False theory.
