Dumbledore Wikia info card says:

 Title(s)       ... Grand Sorcerer

This fact is mentioned, but nowhere is it referenced/cited.

Where in HP canon (books/interviews/pottermore) is the fact sourced from?

Was that on his Chocolate Frog card?


The title was abbreviated in the book.

It was listed in the letter that Hogwarts sent to Harry regarding his acceptance, in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, CHAPTER FOUR: The Keeper of the Keys


Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore

(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc., Chf. Warlock, Supreme Mugwump, International Confed. of Wizards)

    @AjoKoshy - all credit goes to FireFox and the little friend called "Ctrl-F" :) Dec 30 '13 at 4:12
  • Do you read HP books on web (not locally in ePub, Mobi or PDF format)? Where?

    @BMWurm - if you read the Q and A carefully, the site Wiki had no canon references, and book reference is what the answer provides. Nov 17 '14 at 15:16
