The Elder Wand is considered, an immensely powerful and is also considered unbeatable; the Resurrection stone, a stone used to summon the spirits of the dead, and the Cloak of Invisibility as its name suggest, user can completely be invisible.
According to the story, both owner of the wand Antioch Peverell and owner of the stone Cadmus Peverell came to bad ends. However, Ignoutus Peverell’s in this cloak was rewarded. In the book it was believed that, whoever controlled all the three Deathly Hallows would be the master of the Death. According to legend Dumbledore, whoever posses these three artefacts would become the Master of death.
Dumbledore told Harry that he and another wizard, Gellert Grindelwald took this to mean that the uniter of the Deathly Hallows would be invincible. The fact is no one other than Harry has been known about these three artfacts. But he never had the possession of all three at the same time.
The three brothers in the story were known as Peverell Brothers, second brother as Cadmus and third brother as Ignotus Peverell. The story behind the Deathly Hallows is, the thre brothers were walking and when they came along across a river. They used their magic to create a bridge and cross easily and safely, but the death felt cheated and claimed many lives of the travelers attempting to cross the bridge.
