A '''duel between [[Harry Potter]] and [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]''' took place at the start of the [[Second Wizarding War]] on [[24 June]], [[1995]] in the [[Little Hangleton graveyard|graveyard]] in [[Little Hangleton]] following [[Rebirth of Lord Voldemort|Voldemort's rebirth]]. Harry and Voldemort's wands connected in [[Priori Incantatem]], and while Harry managed to escape physically unscathed with the body of [[Cedric Diggory]], the emotional toll of the traumatic experience of watching a classmate murdered, his arm slit open, Wormtail slice off his own hand, and Voldemort be reborn, was great.

In the decades prior to his [[Attack at Godric's Hollow (1981)|downfall]] in [[1981]], [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] created several [[Horcrux]]es to ensure his immortality. These protected him on that fateful night in 1981, when he was struck by his rebounding [[Killing Curse]]. The shard of his soul that remained in his body was driven out of it and forced to exist in a spectral form for nearly fourteen years. He travelled to a secluded forest in [[Albania]], where decades earlier he had found [[Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem]], and hid there waiting to be found by his servants. Though none came, he was able to convince [[Quirinus Quirrell]] to return with him to Britain in [[1991]]. When their attempts to steal the [[Philosopher's Stone]] were thwarted by [[Harry Potter]], he returned to Albania believing that he would never return to power.

Finally, in [[1994]], Voldemort's whereabouts were discovered by one of his servants. [[Peter Pettigrew]], also known as Wormtail, had betrayed the [[James and Lily Potter|Potters]] to Voldemort fourteen years previous, and framed [[Sirius Black]] for the crime. Those many years, he had hidden in his [[Animagus]] form as a rat known as Scabbers. After he was exposed on [[6 June]], he fled for the safety of his master's protection. Along the way, he manipulated [[Bertha Jorkins]] into joining him, and brought her before the Dark Lord. From her, Voldemort learned of the [[Triwizard Tournament]] and of [[Bartemius Crouch Jr.]], and concocted a plan to restore his physical form and reunite with his [[Death Eaters]].

As the third task of the Triwizard Tournament approached, Barty Crouch Jr. did everything in his power to ensure that Harry would be given a winner's advantage upon entering the [[Hedge Maze]], and turned the Triwizard Cup into a [[Portkey]] that would transport Harry to the [[Little Hangleton graveyard]], where Voldemort and [[Peter Pettigrew]] awaited him.

Duel little hangleton
Duel between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort (Return of the Dark Lord)
Event information
Location

Little Hangleton graveyard, England

Date(s)

24 June, 1995

Participant(s)
"I saw him! I fought him!'"
—Harry to Dolores Umbridge about the duel[src]

A duel between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort took place at the start of the Second Wizarding War on 24 June, 1995 in the graveyard in Little Hangleton following Voldemort's rebirth.

Harry and Voldemort's wands connected in Priori Incantatem, and while Harry managed to escape physically unscathed with the body of Cedric Diggory, the emotional toll of the traumatic experience of watching a classmate murdered, his arm slit open, Wormtail slice off his own hand, and Voldemort be reborn, was great.

Background informationEdit

"The Dark Lord will rise again, Crouch! Throw us into Azkaban; we will wait! He will rise again and will come for us, he will reward us beyond any of his other supporters! We alone were faithful! We alone tried to find him!"
Bellatrix Lestrange at her trial[src]

In the decades prior to his downfall in 1981, Lord Voldemort created several Horcruxes to ensure his immortality. These protected him on that fateful night in 1981, when he was struck by his rebounding Killing Curse. The shard of his soul that remained in his body was driven out of it and forced to exist in a spectral form for nearly fourteen years. He travelled to a secluded forest in Albania, where decades earlier he had found Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem, and hid there waiting to be found by his servants. Though none came, he was able to convince Quirinus Quirrell to return with him to Britain in 1991. When their attempts to steal the Philosopher's Stone were thwarted by Harry Potter, he returned to Albania believing that he would never return to power.

Selection of the Champions

The Triwizard Tournament

Finally, in 1994, Voldemort's whereabouts were discovered by one of his servants. Peter Pettigrew, also known as Wormtail, had betrayed the Potters to Voldemort fourteen years previous, and framed Sirius Black for the crime. Those many years, he had hidden in his Animagus form as a rat known as Scabbers. After he was exposed on 6 June, he fled for the safety of his master's protection. Along the way, he manipulated Bertha Jorkins into joining him, and brought her before the Dark Lord. From her, Voldemort learned of the Triwizard Tournament and of Bartemius Crouch Jr., and concocted a plan to restore his physical form and reunite with his Death Eaters.

The PlanEdit

Lord Voldemort planned to use Harry Potter's blood as part of a dark potion that would return him to his body, assuming correctly that the use of Potter's blood would override the protection afforded to Harry by his mother's sacrifice, and allow Voldemort to touch Harry without experiencing excruciating pain. On Voldemort's orders, Bartemius Crouch Jr., who had been recently freed of his father's Imperius Curse, kidnapped Alastor Moody and took his place as temporary Defence Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry using Polyjuice Potion. Holding Moody captive in his own trunk, Crouch confunded the Goblet of Fire into believing four schools were participating in the Triwizard Tournament and declaring Harry one of the Champions.

The Third TaskEdit

As the third task of the Triwizard Tournament approached, Barty Crouch Jr. did everything in his power to ensure that Harry would be given a winner's advantage upon entering the Hedge Maze, and turned the Triwizard Cup into a Portkey that would transport Harry to the Little Hangleton graveyard, where Voldemort and Peter Pettigrew awaited him. As the task proceeded, Crouch Imperiused Viktor Krum to torture Cedric Diggory, while he put Fleur Delacour out of action. Unfortunately, Harry rescued Cedric, and the two arrived at the cup simultaneously. They agreed to take it together, and were both transported out of the maze.

The GraveyardEdit

Cedric's Death

Pettigrew murders Cedric Diggory

As soon as Harry and Cedric arrived, Wormtail murdered Cedric on Voldemort's command. Wormtail then trapped Harry against the tomb of Tom Riddle Sr., and created a potion using Harry's blood, a bone dug up from the senior Riddle's grave, and one of Wormtail's own hands, to regenerate Lord Voldemort's body.

Voldemort then retrieved his wand and summoned the Death Eaters, including Lucius Malfoy, Crabbe, Avery, Walden Macnair, etc., to the graveyard. He expressed his fury at the Death Eaters for their failure to seek and find Voldemort after his fall in 1981, and rewarded Wormtail's efforts, however cowardly, with an enchanted silver hand to replace the one he'd sacrificed to the potion. He then focused his attention on Harry, telling the Death Eaters why he fell thirteen years ago, emphasising his belief that it was nothing more than a fluke that allowed Harry to survive. He released Harry, and initiated a duel.

The DuelEdit

"You have been taught how to duel. Harry Potter? [...] We bow to each other. Harry. Come, the niceties must be observed... Dumbledore would like you to show manners... Bow to death, Harry. [...] I said, bow. [...] Very good, and now you face me, like a man... straight-backed and proud, the way your father died, and now — we duel."
—Voldemort tormenting Harry just before their duel.[src]

Priori Incantatem taking effect during the duel

Voldemort ordered Harry to bow to him, then performed the Cruciatus Curse and the Imperius Curse, though Harry was able to resist the latter and duck behind a grave stone. Voldemort screamed, "Avada Kedavra" just as Harry yelled, "Expelliarmus"; the spells collided, and the wands' twin cores caused the rare effect of Priori Incantatem.

Both wands connected through jets of light coloured by their respective spells, with Voldemort's green Killing Curse struggling to overpower Harry's red Disarming charm, and eventually failing. As criss-crossing golden beams of light surrounded the duelists, holding the surrounding Death Eaters at bay, echoes of Wormtail's silver hand, Cedric Diggory, Bertha Jorkins, Frank Bryce, and James and Lily Potter appeared, encouraging Harry not to let go of his wand or let himself be overpowered by Voldemort. They told him they would be able to distract Voldemort for a moment while Harry went for the Portkey, and Cedric asked Harry to take his body back to his family; Harry obliged, and appeared back at Hogwarts, clutching Diggory's corpse.

The FalloutEdit

As Voldemort had suspected, taking Harry's blood did indeed allow him to touch Harry without experiencing the kind of pain Quirinus Quirrell had in 1992. What Voldemort hadn't realised was that it would also tie Harry's life to his own; a fact that would later directly result in Harry surviving to bring about Voldemort's end.

Daily prophet the boy who lies

A Daily Prophet article showing the Ministry trying to slander Harry Potter and anyone who believed him.

Upon Harry's return to Hogwarts, Barty Crouch Jr., who attempted to murder Harry personally, was discovered. Under the influence of Veritaserum, Crouch revealed to Albus Dumbledore that his father and dying mother had helped him escape from Azkaban, as well as how he had been able to conjure the Dark Mark at the Quidditch World Cup. Moody was freed, and Barty Crouch was given the Dementor's Kiss. Though he lost of one of his most trusted servants, Voldemort was reuinted with another: Severus Snape returned to Voldemort's inner circle on Dumbledore's orders, hours after Harry's return from the graveyard, where he remained as a double agent throughout the Second Wizarding War.

Though the events at Little Hangleton graveyard marked Lord Voldemort's true return and effectively began the Second Wizarding War, the Ministry remained in fierce denial of anything other than a tragic accident, resulting in Cedric Diggory's death, having occurred. For backing Harry's claims of Voldemort's return, Albus Dumbledore was stripped of his title as Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards, and was removed from his post as Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot. In addition to nearly being expelled from Hogwarts for defending himself and his cousin Dudley from Dementors, Harry found himself the target of a smear campaign in the Wizarding newspapers, namely the Daily Prophet, which claimed both he and Dumbledore were either attention-seeking liars or delusional.
