Is Grindelwald stronger than Voldemort ?

from the movies and books alone, I'm not sure it is clear. Voldemort killed him, but it was after decades of imprisonment and when he was wand-less. Dumbledore defeated Grindelwald but Dumbledore might have been able to defend Voldemort also. Voldemort was certainly worried about it because he avoided confronting dumbledore directly. the one time the story shows them going face to face (book / movie 5), Voldemort eventually hid within harry and then deserted the scene entirely. so we don't know who would have won.
Voldemort may have been more dangerous simply because he had fewer personal limitations on how dark he was willing to go than Grindelwald. for example, Grindelwald may have been unwilling even consider magic as dark as a horcrux. that would have given Voldemort an advantage, at least briefly.
also, we have still not seen the final fight between Grindelwald and Dumbledore. we don't know yet how that's actually going to play out. it could be that power has less to do with grindelwald's defeat than the personal relationship between him and Dumbledore.

According to Harry Potter Lore and background info....... he was first defeated and imprisoned by Dumbledore.......(so couldn't even beat him) .......and was later KILLED by Voldemort.
He is considered the second most powerful DARK Wizard, only after Voldemort. (Dumbledore is a GOOD Wizard. )
So the question now is........with all 3 now dead..........who is THEE most powerful wizard?
Welllllllll , that must be Harry himself , since he killed Voldemort.
