We met the Weasleys after Harry befriended Ron and since then (most) of them could do no wrong. There's the quirky patriarch Arthur, whose love for Muggles has caused him and the rest of his family to be labeled blood traitors, the fierce Molly Weasley, whose love for her children, Harry and Hermione included, is as legendary as tale of the Boy Who Lived. There's the first-born son Bill who set the high standard as to what should be expected of the Weasley children, Charlie who followed in his footsteps and Percy, the most ambitious of all the Weasley kids. We had Fred and George, the twins whose legacy will not soon be forgotten through the halls of the castle, Ron Weasley, prefect and keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team and Ginny, the only girl in the Weasley family in generations.
Together, these lovable pure-bloods opened their arms to Harry and supported him during his journey to defeat the Dark Lord. But how much do you really know about them? Could you pass this Weasley quiz, if you tried?
Together and in order, Arthur and Molly Weasley had Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred and George, Ron and Ginny.
The Burrow was the name of the dwelling that belonged to the Weasleys. Its formal address is Ottery St. Catchpole, Devon.
While it is common for most family members to be sorted into the same house, all nine Weasley members were placed in Gryffindor, for their bravey.
After Arthur Weasley's graduation from Hogwarts, he started working at the Ministry of Magic, with a position in the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts. Later on, he was promoted by then Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour, to the Office for the Detection and Confiscation of Counterfeit Defensive Spells and Protective Objects.
Ginny's full name, which we rarely see in the Harry Potter novels, is Ginevra. Rumor has it that her name stems from Guinevere- the name of King Arthur's wife.
Before Harry's second year at Hogwarts, Ron, accompanied by Fred and George, drove Mr. Weasley's flying Ford Anglia to rescue Harry, whom Ron had not heard from for the entire summer.
Charlie worked in Romania, Bill in Egypt and Percy, Ron, Arthur, Ginny and the twins in Great Britain. No one has ever been to, far less worked in, the United States.
With the money Arthur Weasley won in a Daily Prophet draw, he took the family on a vacation to Egypt where they visited Bill, who worked there as a Curse Breaker at Gringotts.
Molly Weasley, who was a Prewett before her marriage to Arthur, is related to the Black family through the marriage of her brother, Ignatius to Lucretia Black. Arthur's mother, Cedrella, was a Black and the aunt of Sirius and Regulus Black.
When it was time for Ron and Hermione to cast their corporeal Patronuses, we found out that his was a dog- a Jack Russell terrier, to be exact.
Molly Weasley has a magic clock that tells her the whereabouts of her immediate family, which includes her children and husband. The locations include school, home. hospital, prison and mortal peril.
Charlie has always been obsessed with dragons. He started sneaking into the Forbidden Forest to try to find one, sold items to try to buy an egg and was extremely excited when a rumor that there may be a dragon in Hogwarts was being spread. It would only make sense that he studied them when he left.
Following his graduation from Hogwarts, Bill became a Curse Breaker at the Gringotts Bank in Egypt. His job was to remove/break curses placed on magical objects.
Ginny dated Michael Corner near the end of her third year at Hogwarts. She and Dean began dating during her fourth year, after she dumped Michael and she dated and eventually married Harry Potter.
Charlie came home for the summer of Bill's wedding to be his best man. The day before the ceremony, he informed Hagrid that Norbert was doing well, but was, in fact, a female.
Trevor was the name of Neville's Toad. Scabbers was the Weasley rat for 12 years, Errol was a pretty old owl and Pig was Ron's replacement pet for Scabbers.
Also called a Put-Outer, a deluminator is a device used famously by Albus Dumbledore to remove and restore various light sources. It was passed down to Ron when he died.
Fred and George, who were both sorted into Gryffindor, became Beaters during their second year at Hogwarts. Referred to as "Human Bludgers," the two rode Cleansweep Five broomsticks during their matches.
Percy dated Penelope Clearwater, a muggle-born Ravenclaw student, during his sixth year at Hogwarts. She was also a prefect.
The Weasley twins created many things, but the chocolate frog was not one of them. They preferred things like boxing telescopes, skiving snackboxes and decoy detonators.
After Voldemort's defeat, Charlie went back to Romania to study dragons. He never got married, nor did he have children.
How fitting is it that the most epic pranksters in Hogwarts' history were born on April Fools? Well they were and we love that.
There's a ghoul that lives in the attic of the Burrow. He spends his time making noise and thrashing about and refusing to leave the premises.
When Percy was promoted by Cornelius Fudge, Arthur tried to talk some sense into him. Percy lashed out by telling his father that the family's poor economic status was due to his father having no ambition and no desire for advancement.
Bill and Fleur's home, Shell Cottage, can be found on the outskirts of Tinworth, a small town in Cornwall. It was given to Bill by one of his aunts.
In order to transport Harry one last time, six members of the order drank a Polyjuice potion to turn into him, to try to confuse the Death Eaters. George lost an ear during the fight and joked with Fred that he was now "holy" because of the hole that was left.
Luckily, when Bill was injured by Fenrir Greyback, one of the most vile werewolves in the Wizarding World, he did not develop the ability to transform into one of them. But he did develop wolf-like tendencies, like wanting his steak very rare.
Fred, during the Goblet of Fire, asked Angeline Johnson to be his date and it is believed that the two dated after. Later in George's life, after Fred's death, he married Angelina and had two children, one of whom was named Fred.
Arthur was a member of the second Order of the Phoenix. One of his duties included guarding the Hall of Prophecy, a chamber in the Department of Mysteries.
Many Wealseys showed up during the Battle of the Seven Potters. Bill and Arthur acted as protectors, while Ron, Fred and George took the Polyjuice potion to become Harry.
Fred and George chose to make their departure during Harry's O.W.L. exams. Not only did they cause one of the greatest commotions in Hogwarts history, but there was also a huge fireworks dragon which chased Umbridge for a while. Epic!
During the Battle of Hogwarts, Bellatrix was locked in a duel with Luna, Hermione and Ginny, and although the three were skilled, they could not match Bellatrix's skill. She cast a killing curse at Ginny, which enraged Molly Weasley who then cast a spell which killed the Death Eater,
Fred was fighting by Percy's side near the Room of Requirement when an explosion went off and fatally injured him. Percy refused to leave his side, before his body was moved to the Great Hall, where the other Weasleys mourned him.
After the Battle of Hogwarts and Voldemort's defeat, Harry and Ron become Aurors. Where Harry stayed and was eventually promoted, Ron retired and went to help George at Weasley's Wizard Wheezes.
