    Yep Dumbledore could speal Parseltongue!! At least he can understand it. We learn that in the Penseive scene with the Gaunts in HP6. But that’s because he learnt to do it and not because he has a natural ability like Harry or Voldemort (or Delphi ?). (sorry if I’m writing the names wrong, I’m French I remember them better in French, for exemple Parseltongue is Fourchelang^^)

    It was mentioned at some point that Dumbledore did learn to understand parseltongue.
