The Coolest Facts About the Harry Potter Series

1. Queen Elizabeth I was almost a part of the Malfoy family

One of Draco Malfoy’s ancestors, the very first Lucious Malfoy, attempted to marry Queen Elizabeth I. Yes, you read that right. Had this happened, their pureblood family would have been tainted with muggle blood, changing the course of wizard and muggle history for generations. Who would have thought everyone’s favorite Tudor royal is actually a part of the Harry Potter lore?! 

2. Professor McGonagall was once a skillful Quidditch player

Professor Minerva McGonagall’s good old days at Hogwarts were clearly as exciting as that of Harry! Just like him, she was a celebrated Gryffindor quidditch player. However, tragedy struck during her final year.

As a result of a foul during the Slytherin versus Gryffindor match, she suffered a severe injury that left her with many broken ribs. Gryffindor ended up losing the Quidditch cup. Some fans say that this loss fueled her determination to beat Slytherin in every Quidditch match. 

3. The names of the magical plants from the series came from real-life flora

Most of the names in the series originated from J.K. Rowling’s colorful imagination, but the plants featured really exist in the muggle environment. Devil’s Snare, mandrake, toadflax, and more. These ideas came from English botanist Nicholas Culpeper’s book “The Complete Herbal.” 

4. Voldermort was 71 years old when he died at the Battle of Hogwarts

Tom Marvolo Riddle was born in 1926, making him 71 years old when he died at the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998. Wizard life expectancy is about 137 years old, so the dark lord died pretty early. The mysterious and elusive Barry Winkle is known as the oldest wizard alive. He celebrated his 755th year back in the 1990s. 

5. Young witches and wizards are homeschooled before they attend Hogwarts

We all know that young witches and wizards become eligible to attend Hogwarts at roughly 11 to 12 years old. So what do they do before they reach that age? Well, there’s no such thing as wizard kindergarten school. Before they get to attend a big school, they just study at home. Muggle-borns, of course, go through a more established form of schooling before turning 11.
