Weasley family

The two brothers of Arthur Weasley[1] are pure-blood wizards. Their parents were Septimus and Cedrella Weasley (née Black).[2] At least one of them appears to have had children, as there were mentions of various Weasley cousins at the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour in August of 1997.[3]

Behind the scenes

Irmao
  • Brother
    J. K. Rowling stated that Arthur had two brothers.[1] They have not been named thus far.
  • Uncle Bilius's relation to the Weasley family is unknown — he may be one of the unnamed brothers, or a brother or of Molly Weasley (née Prewett).

In addition, an uncle of the Weasley children who attended Bill and Fleur's wedding,[3] may have been one of Arthur's brothers.

Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 "Extra Stuff: The Weasley Family" at J.K. Rowling's Official Site
  2. Although it has never been confirmed that Septimus and Cedrella are the parents of Arthur and his brothers, this can be inferred based on Sirius Black's statement in Ch. 6 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix that Arthur was "something like [his] second cousin once removed." The Black family tree establishes Cedrella as a first cousin once removed of both Orion and Walburga Black, Sirius's parents. Thus, any children she had would be their second cousins, and second cousins once removed of their sons Sirius and Regulus. Also, almost all of Sirius's relatives can be seen on the Black family tree because both his parents were born into the House of Black, making it unlikely that he could be related to Arthur in a way not shown. See also this article's talk page and this HPL essay for more information.

  4. One of the brothers was stated to attend, but it is most likely that both attended the wedding, if the other is not Bilius.
