40 Things You Didn’t Know About The Weasley Family
The Weasley family is the sweetest part of Harry Potter. They fight and goof off together like a normal family, and they aren’t particularly well off. Even so, they love each other and extend their means as far as possible to make everyone feel loved — including chosen family members like Harry Potter. Part of what makes the family feel so full is how each one of the Weasleys becomes a three-dimensional character of their own. It’s not just Harry’s best friend Ron. Every Weasley has a distinct personality and a unique reason to love them.
As the series progresses, it becomes clear how heroic the Weasley family is. They may be pure-blooded, but they’re willing to stand up to Voldemort in a way few other families are. They battle back his evil and represent what is good about the wizarding world. Because the family is given such vivid life by author J.K. Rowling, there are plenty of details about them audiences might not know. From family feuds to bloodlines, here are 40 things you didn’t know about the Weasley family.
