[edit] Sixth Book

Dumbledore needs a particular memory from Horace Slughorn. So he gets him to work at the school as the new potions master, making Severus Snape the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. He asks Harry Potter to try to warm up to Slughorn so that he can obtain this memory. Dumbledore keeps Harry very involved with him through out the school year. Finally they get this memory of a young Tom Riddle asking Slughorn about Horcruxes. Dumbledore shows Harry many memories pertaining to the Horcruxes they are trying to find.

Soon Dumbledore finds what he thinks is the next hiding place of a Horcrux, and he asks Harry to accompany him to the place. It is a cave where Voldemort spent his childhood. Dumbledore slices his hand to enter the cave. They find the Horcrux, but it is untouchable unless someone drinks the potion surrounding it. Dumbledore proceeds to drink it. While drinking he says things like, "It's all my fault!" After he is done drinking it, he asks Harry to get him water. Upon touching the water, inferi come out and pull Harry in. Dumbledore casts a spell that sends a whirl of fire around them and the inferi back off. Weak, Dumbledore can't apparate back to Hogsmeade, so Harry does it.

When they get back they see the dark mark over the school. They get brooms and fly to the astronomy tower. Dumbledore asks Harry to get Severus Snape instead of Madame Pomfrey. Then the doors are opened. Malfoy steps out and disarms Dumbledore, but before he does Dumbledore freezes Harry so he can't do anything. Dumbledore tries to tell Malfoy that he isn't an assassin, but Malfoy won't listen. Then other death eaters join them. They try to get Malfoy to kill Dumbledore, but he doesn't do it. Then Snape comes. Dumbledore then says, "Severus....Please." Snape casts Avada Kedavra on him, and he falls off the astronomy tower. Dead.
