If she had been born in 1980 like Harry and Ron, she would be too young to begin attending school in 1991; she would be ten, a couple of weeks away from turning eleven.

'''Hermione Jean Weasley''' (née '''Granger'''; b. [[19 September]], [[1979]]<ref name="mugglenet" />) was the daughter of [[Muggle]]s [[Hermione Granger's parents|Mr. and Mrs. Granger]], both dentists in [[Muggle]] London. At age eleven, Hermione learned that she was a witch and had been accepted into [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]]. She began attending the school on [[1 September]], [[1991]], she was subsequently sorted into [[Gryffindor]] House. She possessed a brilliant academic mind and proved to be a gifted student. She was one of the few people who was less intimidated by calling Lord Voldemort by his name, instead of calling him You-Know-Who like many others.

'''Hermione Jean Granger'''<!---Please do not change this. It is confirmed by Pottermore - the 2014 Quidditch Finale - that Hermione's surname is, as of 2014, still Granger ---> (b. [[19 September]], [[1979]]<ref name="birthday" />) was an English muggle-born witch and the only daughter of [[Muggle]] [[Hermione Granger's parents|Mr and Mrs Granger]], both dentists in London. At age eleven, Hermione learned that she was a witch and had been accepted into [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]]. She began attending the school on [[1 September]], [[1991]] where she was subsequently sorted into [[Gryffindor]] House. She possessed a brilliant academic mind and proved to be a gifted student. She was very studious and bookish. Along with [[Harry Potter]] and a few others, she was relatively little intimidated by Lord Voldemort's name, calling him by his name, instead of You-Know-Who or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
   
Hermione first met [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] aboard the Hogwarts Express. Both boys found Hermione unfriendly and something of a know-it-all. Later her eagerness to please her [[professor]]s and her constantly correct answers reinforced their initial impression. However, in spite of the cool relationship between the three, Hermione stepped in to take the blame from Ron and Harry after they had saved her from a [[troll]] on [[Hallowe'en]]. Harry and Ron were surprised but grateful, and the three quickly became friends. In her [[1992|second year]], Hermione fell victim to a [[Salazar Slytherin's basilisk|basilisk]] unleashed upon Hogwarts following the opening of the [[Chamber of Secrets]], but was returned from her petrification under the care of [[Madam Pomfrey]] with the assistance of [[Professor Sprout|Professor Sprout]]'s [[Mandrake Restorative Draught]]. The [[1993|following year]], Hermione was granted permission to use and was sent a [[Time-Turner]] from the [[Ministry of Magic]] to facilitate her volition to study far more subjects than was possible without time travel. Later in the year, she and Harry would use the Time-Turner to rescue [[Sirius Black]] from the [[Dementor's Kiss]], as well as [[Buckbeak]] the [[Hippogriff]] from execution. During her [[1994|fourth year]] at Hogwarts, Hermione became an advocate for the better treatment of [[house-elf|house-elves]], forming the association [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|S.P.E.W.]]. In her [[1995|fifth year]], she was the driving force behind the creation of [[Dumbledore's Army]]. Later in her fifth year she fought in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. In her sixth year the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]], and at the beginning of what would be her seventh year, the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]] in [[1997]]. Hermione, as well as Ron - with whom she had become romantically involved - decided not to return to Hogwarts for their final year of studies and instead chose to accompany Harry on his quest to find and destroy [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es. She then fought in, and survived, the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].

Following the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione went back to Hogwarts to complete her education. Later she found employment with the [[Ministry of Magic]], furthering the cause for the better treatment of house-elves, before being promoted to the [[Department of Magical Law Enforcement]]. She eventually [[Marriage|married]] Ron Weasley, together they have two children: a daughter, [[Rose Weasley|Rose]] and a son, [[Hugo Weasley|Hugo]]. Hermione became the godmother of [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Potter]]'s eldest son [[James Potter II|James]].

In the summer of [[1991]], Hermione was surprised to learn that she was a [[Wizardkind|witch]] and was invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She eagerly accepted and took to studying magic even before she began her first year at Hogwarts in the [[September]] of 1991, learning all the set spell books by heart and even managing to [[underage magic|perform]] "a few spells" successfully.

Hermione enjoyed her years as a pupil at Hogwarts, and took assignments, classes, and school rules very seriously. Her favourite subject was initially [[Charms (class)|Charms]], and later [[Arithmancy]], and the only areas of study that gave her trouble were [[Flying (class)|Flying]] and [[Divination]]. Some students, such as [[Terry Boot]], wondered why Hermione was sorted into [[Gryffindor]] house rather than [[Ravenclaw]], given her keen mind. Hermione admitted that the [[Sorting Hat]] did consider putting her in Ravenclaw. Being sorted into Gryffindor, Hermione would share a dormitory with [[Lavender Brown]], [[Parvati Patil]], [[Fay Dunbar]] and [[Fay Dunbar's friend|another girl]].<ref name="OOTP">''[[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]]''</ref>

But she proved her rightful place in Gryffindor with her steadfast bravery and loyalty to her friends, [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], and [[Dumbledore's Army]]. It is likely that the Sorting Hat put her in Gryffindor in the first place, because she chose to be in it, just like Harry chose to not be in Slytherin; on the train, she mentions that, "Gryffindor...sounds by far the best."

Hermione was a couple of weeks away from turning twelve when she boarded the [[Hogwarts Express]] in [[1991]], where she met [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] while helping [[Neville Longbottom]] find his pet toad, [[Trevor]]. Hermione demonstrated a knowledge and talent with [[magic]] beyond most of those her age, despite having only recently discovered that she was a Muggle-born witch. She wished to be a Gryffindor or a Ravenclaw, and her wish was granted considering she did get sorted into Gryffindor. She soon proved to be the best in all her classes, eager to please the professors and to help others learn, albeit in a bossy way that made it difficult for her to make friends.

{{Quote|I'm going to bed before either of you come up with another idea to get us killed, or worse; expelled.|Hermione to Harry and Ron|Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone}}Hermione attached herself to Harry and Ron, following them around and trying to prevent them from breaking school rules and getting into trouble. On one night, she followed them as they were leaving Gryffindor Tower to [[duel]] [[Draco Malfoy]]. They were chased by [[Argus Filch]], acting on a tipoff by Malfoy, into the third floor corridor — forbidden to students — where they came face-to-face with [[Fluffy]], a three-headed dog belonging to [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]]. Later on, she argued that her spying was to their benefit when she pointed out the [[Fluffy|dog]] had been standing on a trap door, which Harry and Ron had not noticed.

The friendship between the three was solidified when, on [[31 October|Hallowe'en]] in [[1991]], the three were forced to confront [[Quirinus Quirrell's first mountain troll|a mountain troll]]. Unaware that a troll was on the loose in the school, Hermione had spent that day crying in the girls' bathroom after overhearing Ron making unkind comments about her. The troll made its way into the bathroom she was in, and Harry and Ron came to her rescue, saving her. When Professors [[Minerva McGonagall]], [[Severus Snape]], and [[Quirinus Quirrell]] arrived at the scene, Hermione covered for the boys, claiming she was fighting the troll because she had thought that she could fight one, having read a great deal about them, and that Ron and Harry had merely come to help her escape. From that point on, the three students were best friends.

The incident with the troll was by no means her only adventure in that first year. During the first [[Quidditch]] match, Hermione set [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]]'s robes on fire when she thought he was jinxing Harry's broom. In the spring of [[1992]], [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]], a friend of Hermione's through Harry, managed to procure a dragon egg. Hermione along with Ron and Harry helped Hagrid care for the beast which Hagrid named [[Norberta|Norbert]]. When the dragon was discovered, Hermione and Harry helped smuggle it out of the school to some friends of Ron's elder brother, [[Charles Weasley|Charlie Weasley]]. During the night, they were found, and given detention.

During the night, they were found, and given detention.

Fearing that [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] would return if the [[Philosopher's Stone]], which Harry, Ron, and Hermione had divined was hidden in the school, was stolen, Harry decided to steal the Stone first. When he told Hermione that he could go on alone, she rebuffed him. After the trio passed [[Fluffy]], it was Hermione who freed Ron from a patch of [[Devil's Snare]] he had dropped into by conjuring [[Lumos Solem]].

She and her [[Granger family|parents]] also accompanied Harry and the [[Weasley family]] to [[Diagon Alley]] to shop for school supplies.
It was during her second school year that Hermione first encountered the prejudice and hatred surrounding her [[Blood purity|blood status]], when [[Draco Malfoy]] called her a "filthy little [[Mudblood]]" after she told him off for insulting the [[Gryffindor Quidditch team]]. Hermione had never heard the highly offensive term but looking around at everyone around her, it was an obvious fact. [[Fred and George Weasley]] lunged at him, and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] even tried to hex him, but it backfired, as his [[Ronald Weasley's first wand|wand]] had been damaged. To help Hermione feel better about the incident, [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] urged her not to think about it, pointing out that she was a talented witch, regardless of what bigoted people said about her [[Muggle-born]] status.
 
   
Hermione surprised Harry and Ron with her obvious crush on [[Gilderoy Lockhart]], who became that year's [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] Professor. Ron was very troubled by that fact and it was very obvious that he didn't like that Hermione had a crush on Gilderoy Lockhart. She scored full marks on the first quiz in his class, which contained only questions pertaining to Lockhart's books, including a question regarding his favourite colour (lilac) that most of the class had answered incorrectly. In fact, she went as far as to doodle hearts on her D.A.D.A. assignments, not knowing until later that he was, in reality, a self-obsessed fraud.

On [[Halloween]], [[1992]] Hermione attended [[Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday Party|Nearly Headless Nick's Death-day Party]] with Harry and Ron. While heading back upstairs, she followed Harry, who claimed to be hearing voices. They discovered the [[caretaker]]'s cat, Mrs Norris, was petrified. The walls were vandalised. Hermione began spending all her free time in the Hogwarts Library after she saw the vandalism on the corridor walls, which had said that the [[Chamber of Secrets]] had been re-opened. Despite hoping to read about the legend, she could not; as all the books had been previously checked out. Hermione shocked everyone when she actually interrupted Professor [[Cuthbert Binns]] during a [[History of Magic]] lecture, asking questions about the Chamber of Secrets. This was the only known time when a student asked the boring professor a question, and the class was interested in what he had to say.
 
   
Professor Binns had stated that Salazar Slytherin had hidden a chamber which consisted of a horrible monster. It had been unleashed before once, petrifying many Muggle-born and had also killed a Ravenclaw girl, named Myrtle who is currently haunting the Girl's bathroom. She is now known as Moaning Myrtle and her current form is a ghost. Anyways, Salazar was angry on the fact that Muggle-born children should be allowed to attend Hogwarts but he was outnumbered and Muggle-born like Hermione were allowed to attend the school. Slytherin fled the school but said that he had hidden a chamber, but it was said that the school had been searched many times but no such chamber had been found.

When Harry proposed the theory that [[Draco Malfoy]] was the "Heir of Slytherin," Hermione went even further by daring to check ''[[Moste Potente Potions]]'' out of the library using a note from Professor Lockhart, in the desire to research [[Polyjuice Potion]]. She hoped that they would be able to obtain a confession from Malfoy. She brewed the potion in [[Myrtle|Moaning Myrtle]]'s bathroom, as no one used it. Hermione also risked serious consequences when she stole potion ingredients from [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]]'s cupboards that were needed for the difficult potion, which took a month to brew.

Unfortunately, Hermione was unable to join Harry and Ron in the ruse with Polyjuice Potion because the hair she obtained from [[Millicent Bulstrode]] during their scuffle in the [[Duelling Club]] was actually the hair of Bulstrode's cat.

Months after her recovery from the Polyjuice complication, Hermione suffered another accident. Drawing the connection between Harry hearing voices in the walls and him being a Parselmouth, she came to the conclusion that the creature attacking students must be a [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|Basilisk]], and rushed to the library to conduct further research. On her way back from the library, she warned the first person she saw, [[Penelope Clearwater]], and advised her to look around corners with a mirror before going anywhere. It saved both their lives, because they were both [[Petrification|petrified]] when they spotted the [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|basilisk]]'s eyes through the mirror. Though she was petrified for the rest of the school year, Hermione was still able to assist Harry and Ron, for she had torn out the page on basilisks and scribbled on it ''pipes'', referencing the manner in which the creature had moved around the school undetected. Using this note and other information they had gathered, Harry and Ron were able to successfully put an end to [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s plans to resurrect his body through his memory stored in [[Tom Riddle's Diary|an old school diary]]. Hermione was later cured with a [[Mandrake Restorative Draught]] created by [[Pomona Sprout|Professor Sprout]]. She was disappointed to learn that, as a special treat for the school, Professor Dumbledore cancelled the students' end of year exams, though intensely proud that her friends had solved the mystery.<ref name="CS">''[[Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets]]''</ref>

Just before she began the [[1993-1994 school year]], while visiting [[Diagon Alley]] with Harry and the [[Weasley family]], Hermione met and adopted a ginger part-[[Kneazle]] cat named [[Crookshanks]] from the [[Diagon Alley|Magical Menagerie]]. However, her new bond with her cat caused friction with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and his pet rat [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]], as Crookshanks was always trying to catch the rat. Also at the beginning of this school year, Hermione obtained a [[Time-Turner]] from [[Minerva McGonagall|Professor McGonagall]] so she could double up on classes, though this was kept secret.

When [[Harry Potter|Harry]] received a [[Harry Potter's Firebolt broomstick|Firebolt]] for Christmas with no note, Hermione reported it to Professor McGonagall, thinking it was sent by [[Sirius Black]], whom everyone believed to be a dangerous murderer who was after Harry. His broom was taken away to be inspected, which caused a temporary rift between the two friends. There was further social strain for Hermione when Ron accused Crookshanks of eating Scabbers, who had disappeared. Hermione poured herself into defending [[Buckbeak]], the [[hippogriff]] on trial before the [[Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures]] for attacking [[Draco Malfoy]] during a [[Care of Magical Creatures]] class. Once the trio reconciled, after Hagrid told Harry and Ron how disappointed he was when they selfishly put the Firebolt and Scabbers over their friendship with Hermione, so they apologized, but their attempt failed, as [[Lucius Malfoy]] frightened the [[Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures|Committee]] into deciding that the creature would be executed. Hermione was extremely upset by this news and grew furious to the point of punching Draco when he mocked [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] for being upset about Buckbeak's fate.

That year, Hermione was also among the students who found [[Remus Lupin]] to be the best [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] teacher they have ever got. Hermione cleverly deduced that Professor Lupin was a [[werewolf]], based on his [[Boggart]] taking the form of a full moon, the timing of his unexplained absences from class, and [[Severus Snape|Professor Snape]] changing a lesson he took over to the subject of werewolves. However, Hermione did not expose Lupin, presumably because she believed he was a good teacher and did not agree with the prejudice many hold against werewolves. [[Divination]], on the other hand, turned out to be a subject Hermione had no respect for or interest in, and soon dropped the subject after Sybill Trelawney told her that she did not posses the second sight. She believed that Divination was an imprecise term of magic.

On the [[6 June|day of Buckbeak's execution]], the trio ventured down to console Hagrid. While in his cabin, Hermione discovered [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]], Ron's lost rat. Hagrid urged them to leave and they witnessed what they thought to be Buckbeak's execution. Before they could return to their dormitory, Scabbers bit Ron and fled. While chasing after the rat, they were attacked by a [[Sirius Black|black dog]], which pulled Ron, by the arm, into a tunnel beneath the [[Whomping Willow]], which then attacked them. Afterward, Hermione and Harry hurried after them eventually arriving in the [[Shrieking Shack]], where Sirius Black, whose [[Animagus]] form was the black dog, confronted them. They were soon joined by Professor Lupin who was acting strangely, and Hermione told Harry and Ron of her belief that he was a werewolf, which he then confirmed. It was revealed that Sirius had been framed for the betrayal of [[James and Lily Potter]], and that the true traitor was Peter Pettigrew, who had been hiding from the world as Ron's pet rat, Scabbers. Hermione also cast [[Disarming Charm|Expelliarmus]] on Snape, knocking him out, at which she was horrified.

Once it had been decided that Pettigrew would be turned over to the authorities, the motley group left the Shrieking Shack. When the full moon appeared, chaos ensued as Lupin transformed as he did not take the potion that Professor Snape produced for him. Pettigrew attacked Ron and escaped, and Sirius had to transform in order to protect Harry, Ron, and Hermione from the werewolf. Hermione and Harry rushed to Sirius' aid when they heard him moaning, but then hundreds of [[Dementor]]s descended on them, come to recapture Sirius. Sirius quickly fainted, and Harry told Hermione to think of something happy and attempt to cast a patronus as he was trying to himself, but they were both unable to cast one. As Harry conjured an uncorporeal Patronus, Hermione passed out leaving Harry to fight the Dementors alone. Harry held them off for a while but was eventually overwhelmed. The Dementors were about to perform the [[Dementor's Kiss|Kiss]] on Harry, Hermione, and Sirius when a mysterious figure cast a [[Patronus Charm]] to repel the [[Dementor]]s. Harry and Hermione awoke in the [[hospital wing]] after being rescued by [[Severus Snape]] who conjured stretchers for Hermione, Harry and Sirius.

Hermione agreed with Harry that it was difficult to watch their problems again but she strictly said that they could do nothing about it as bad things happened to wizards/witches tried to meddle with their past and future lives.

Before her fourth year at Hogwarts, Hermione spent much of the summer holidays at [[The Burrow]] with [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], sharing a room with [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]]. With the other [[Weasley family|Weasleys]] (excluding Molly Weasley), they attended the [[1994]] [[Quidditch World Cup]] in [[August]]. After the game, the communal camp-site was [[Riot at the Quidditch World Cup|set upon]] by [[Death Eaters]]. Hermione, Harry, and Ron fled into the woods and witnessed the casting of ''[[Morsmordre]]''. Initially caught up in the chaos surrounding the effort to catch the caster, she took exception to the accusations levelled against Harry, and the many wizards' treatment of the house-elf [[Winky]] who had also been at the scene.
   
Once at Hogwarts, Hermione began a crusade for the liberation of [[house-elf|house-elves]] by beginning the [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare]], or what she and the group called S.P.E.W, (or as [[Ronald Weasley]] called it: spew) having been appalled by [[Bartemius Crouch Sr.|Bartemius Crouch]]'s abusive treatment of his house-elf [[Winky]]. This di[[File:1280656006_8448_full.jpg|thumb|169px|Hermione's Yule Ball look.]]d not earn her any popularity, as most believed that house-elves enjoy their work; indeed, even the house-elves did not like her campaigning. Harry, Ron, and [[Neville Longbottom]] only reluctantly joined, mostly in order to prevent Hermione from nagging them about it. [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] as well as [[Fred and George Weasley]] refused to join on the grounds that it would upset the house-elves, though Fred did tell Hermione how to get into the [[Hogwarts kitchen]]s, where she spoke to [[Dobby]] and Winky. Hermione considered the former to be a good example of a free elf, and tried to comfort the latter about being sacked by Crouch, but Winky soon became upset by Hermione's claims that house-elves deserved to have holidays and wages, along with the other elves.

After the events surrounding Harry's name coming out of the [[Goblet of Fire]], Hermione was the only student who believed Harry's innocence; in fact, she "accepted his story without question." Even Ron was suspicious that Harry had cheated in order to gain more glory, creating a rift between the two for some time. Hermione helped Harry for the [[Triwizard Tournament]] by teaching him useful spells, such as [[Stunning Spell|Stupefy]], [[Impediment Jinx|Impedimenta]] and [[Summoning Charm|Accio]]and tried to get Harry and Ron to talk to one another multiple times.

At this time, Hermione unknowingly attracted the interest of [[Durmstrang Institute|Durmstrang]] Triwizard Champion and Bulgarian International [[Seeker]], [[Viktor Krum]] for her intelligence, unconventional beauty, and the manner in which she declined to hound him for autographs, unlike other girls. Krum began following Hermione to the library and other places around Hogwarts, and even asked Harry if it was all right for him to pursue Hermione. He eventually asked her to attend the [[Yule Ball]] with him, and she accepted, not telling anyone but [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]].

{{Quote|It was Hermione. But it didn't look like Hermione at all. She had done something with her hair; it was no longer bushy but [[Sleekeazy's Hair Potion|sleek and shiny]], and twisted up into an elegant knot at the back of her head. She was wearing robes made of a floaty, periwinkle-blue material, and she was holding herself differently, somehow--or maybe it was merely the absence of the twenty or so books she usually had slung over her back. She was also smiling--rather nervously, it was true--but the reduction in the size of her front teeth was more noticeable than ever; Harry couldn't understand how he hadn't spotted it before.|Description of Hermione at the [[Yule Ball]]|Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire}}

The attention to her appearance was unusual, and she received many positive remarks on it. Hermione commented that she had used [[Sleekeazy's Hair Potion]], but that it was too much work to use it every day. Upon seeing Hermione with Krum, Ron was overcome with jealousy. Hermione intended for Ron to ask her, but his invite was insensitive and at the last minute. The two rowed about it in the common room, in which Hermione revealed that he should have asked her instead of Krum, but Ron misunderstood the point. After that, the two were seemingly more polite, although Ron continued to show dislike of Krum.

Hermione was chosen as a "kidnap victim" for Krum during the Tournament's Second Task, something that she subsequently endured teasing over. She was taken to the bottom of the Black Lake to await rescue from Krum, who donned a half-shark [[Transfiguration]].

[[Rita Skeeter]], a journalist for the ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' and unregistered[[File:Images_(16).jpg|thumb|Hermione dancing with Viktor Krum at the ball.]] [[Animagus]], was hiding in beetle form in Hermione's hair during this conversation. Hermione had previously told Skeeter off for printing horrible lies about Harry and [[Rubeus Hagrid]], angering the journalist, who wrote a scathing article on "the devious Miss Granger," claiming that she was toying with both Harry and Krum's affections and possibly brewing [[Love Potion]]s. In the words of Ron, Skeeter was making Hermione out to be a "Scarlet Woman." Although she called Hermione "plain" in the article, she had previously reported Hermione as Harry's "stunningly pretty... girlfriend" by likely twisting and sensationalising the words of [[Colin Creevey]] and thus used this as the basis for the article. Although Hermione found the lies ridiculous, some people believed them and started sending Hermione hate mail, and even [[Molly Weasley]] treated her coldly until Harry corrected her. Hermione found this irritating and vowed to get revenge on Skeeter for her libel, and she did.

Following the death of [[Cedric Diggory]], the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]] refused to accept [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Albus Dumbledore|Dumbledore]]'s claims that [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] had returned, and the ''[[Daily Prophet]]'' labelled them either liars or nutters. However, Hermione and Ron believed Harry and defended him against the criticism of doubtful classmates. Though occasionally Harry vented his frustration at them, Hermione and Ron stuck by him. They also wanted to become members of the reconvened [[Order of the Phoenix]] but were not allowed to because they were under-age. Hermione helped exterminate [[12 Grimmauld Place]], which served as headquarters for the Order, and was immensely relieved when Harry was acquitted of the charge of having used under-age magic. Also before returning to Hogwarts, she and Ron learned that they had been appointed [[prefect]]s for [[Gryffindor]] house and received badges. She took her position very seriously.

Once the school year began, Hermione resumed some of her activism on behalf of house-elves, though she was not as intense about [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|S.P.E.W.]] as she had been the previous year. She learnt how to knit socks and hats for the house-elves and hid them in Gryffindor Tower. The elves found this attempt at freeing them insulting, and they stopped cleaning the Tower at all. [[Dobby]], already a free elf, was the only one who enjoyed the gifts. He took everything Hermione had made and cleaned the Tower by himself, a fact which Hermione did not know.

Meanwhile, it was not long before Hermione realised that the Ministry of Magic had decided to interfere at Hogwarts.

Halfway through the year at Hogwarts, Harry had a vision of Voldemort's snake, Nagini, biting Mr Weasley during his task for the Order of the Phoenix. Mr Weasley was carried into St. Mungo's Hospital, where Mrs Weasley screamed at him for trying to [[stitches|stitch]] his wound instead of healing it with magic. Hermione was one of the few who visited him and stayed at Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place for a couple of weeks until Mr Weasley was nursed back to health. Hermione had managed to convince her parents by telling them that skiing wasn't ''really'' her thing and that people who were serious about [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|their exams]] stayed at Hogwarts and studied.

She successfully lured Umbridge into the [[Forbidden Forest]], where Umbridge was carried away by a herd of [[centaur]]s. Hermione had predicted that the centaurs would let her and Harry go, since they did not insult the centaurs and were young enough to be considered "foals." However, the centaurs were already enraged by Umbridge and were further angered when Hermione admitted that she had hoped that they would drive Umbridge off, being insulted that they were thought of to do the bidding of humans. They were about to carry the two students off as well, but [[Grawp]] stumbled onto the scene and a [[Skirmish in the Forbidden Forest|fight broke out]] between the [[giant]] and the herd. This allowed Hermione and Harry to escape and meet up with Ron, Ginny, Luna, and [[Neville Longbottom|Neville]], who had escaped from the [[Inquisitorial Squad]].

Hermione's fear turned out to be justified, as Harry's vision was a ruse designed to lure him to the Ministry to obtain a [[Sybill Trelawney's first prophecy|prophecy]] Voldemort sought. As soon as Harry did this, the six D.A. members were surrounded by [[Death Eaters]], and a [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries|battle]] ensued.

Hermione [[Stunning Spell|stunned]] [[Nott]] when he grabbed Harry, thus freeing him and causing Nott to be injured by the collapsing shelves of prophecies. She later stunned another [[Death Eaters|Death Eater]] and [[Silencing Charm|silenced]] [[Antonin Dolohov]] before he could alert the other Death Eaters to the group's location. She was critically injured by the [[Antonin Dolohov's curse|curse]] Dolohov subsequently struck her with, but made a full recovery.<ref name="OOTP" />

By the time they arrived in Hogwarts, Hermione's romantic feelings for Ron had become obvious, and she was upset when he and Lavender started flirting. Hermione and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]]'s relationship suffered greatly in their sixth year, when Ron became envious of both Hermione and [[Harry Potter|Harry]], who were invited to be members of the [[Slug Club]], a group of students favoured by [[Potions (class)|Potions]] professor [[Horace Slughorn]], while he was ignored. He was mollified when Hermione revealed that she was going to ask if he wanted to attend Slughorn's [[Slug Club Christmas party|Christmas party]]with her, and the two seemed on their way to a romantic relationship.

However, during an argument with his [[Ginevra Weasley|sister]], Ginny humiliated Ron about his inexperience with the opposite gender and told him that Hermione had kissed [[Viktor Krum]] duri[[File:Emma-watson-half-blood-prince-harry-potter-hermione-hermione-granger-potion-Favim_com-45655.jpg|thumb|302px|A frustrated Hermione in Potions Class.]]ng their earlier romance. Ron subsequently began treating Hermione coldly, much to her bewilderment. He became even angrier with her when she believed that Harry slipped Ron [[Felix Felicis]] to assist in his [[Quidditch]]-playing abilities, despite having believed it initially himself, accusing her of having no faith in him when it was discovered that he had not been slipped the potion at all. All of this culminated in Ron beginning a very public relationship with fellow Gryffindor student [[Lavender Brown]] (Hermione was always insecure around Ron). When she found out about Ron's relationship with Lavender, she conjured a flock of wild birds to attack Ron. After this, Hermione went to the aforementioned Christmas party with [[Cormac McLaggen]] to get back at Ron, but it did not go well due to the former's impoliteness. Afterwards, Ron (who was relieved that Hermione and McLaggen's date did not go well and who was growing discontent in his relationship with Lavender) attempted to speak to Hermione, but she ignored him.<ref name="HBP">''[[Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince]]''</ref>

Throughout the year, she and Ron were both sceptical of Harry's claims that [[Draco Malfoy]] had been branded with the [[Dark Mark]] and was up to something. Moreover, Hermione was confident that Malfoy couldn't have brought any Dark objects into Hogwarts without alerting Filch. Hermione also strongly disapproved of Harry using the textbook of the "[[Severus Snape|Half-Blood Prince]]" to get ahead in [[Potions (class)|Potions]] unfairly, though she did not turn him in. She was particularly alarmed by the increasingly [[Dark Arts|Dark]] nature of the magic in the book, such as the spell ''[[Sectumsempra]]''. Near the end of the school year, Harry's suspicions would be proven right. Malfoy let [[Death Eaters]] into the school, resulting in the [[Battle of the Astronomy Tower]].

Also throughout the school year, Hermione as well as Ron had been informed of the content of Harry's private lessons with Dumbledore.

By the time she got rid of the shield charm, all she could do was scream for him to come back, without success. Hermione then cried over Ron for more than a week after his departure, although she tried to hide it from Harry. Both were deeply saddened and hurt by their friend's departure, although Hermione more than Harry, as she cried over Ron's departure for weeks.

Ron destroyed the [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket|locket Horcrux]] with [[Godric Gryffindor's Sword]], saving Harry's life and thus receiving forgiveness from him for leaving. Before he destroyed it, however, the locket revealed some of Ron's deepest fears, including that Hermione preferred Harry to him.

In the spring of [[1998]], Hermione, Harry, and Ron were tracked down and captured when Harry had accidentally triggered the Taboo curse by a group of [[Snatchers]], which included the deadly and fierce [[werewolf]] [[Fenrir Greyback]], who was dangerously eager to bite Hermione. They were brought to [[Malfoy Manor]] and turned over to [[Bellatrix Lestrange]], who immediately panicked at the sight of [[Godric Gryffindor's Sword]]. She gave away that the sword and another Horcrux were hidden in her [[Lestrange Vault|vault]] at [[Gringotts Wizarding Bank|Gringotts]] in her panic, and proceeded to isolate Hermione and then brutally torture her with the [[Cruciatus Curse]] repeatedly as an interrogation method. Ron, who had tried to take her place unsuccessfully, was reduced to sobs by hearing Hermione scream in pain. Hermione, however, would not be crushed, and came up with a fake story that the sword was merely a copy of the real thing, a lie that Harry persuaded the imprisoned goblin [[Griphook]] to go along with.

In [[1998]], Hermione went back to Hogwarts to attain her [[Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test|N.E.W.T.s]]<ref>PotterCast 130</ref>. She was the only one of the trio to do this. By [[2017]], Hermione and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] were married with two children: [[Rose Weasley|Rose]] and [[Hugo Weasley]]. Hermione is also the godmother of [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]]'s oldest child, [[James Potter II|James]]. <ref>[http://www.mugglenet.com/app/news/full_story/1414 Video clip of J.K.

Hermione attained a high position in the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]], first through the [[Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures]]. There, she continued her work with [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|S.P.E.W.]], working for the rights of underprivileged non-humans such as [[house-elf|house-elves]].

Hermione also eventually translated ''[[The Tales of Beedle the Bard]]'' from the original, which was written in [[Study of Ancient Runes|runes]] and which [[Albus Dumbledore]] bequeathed to her in his [[The Last Will and Testament of Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore|will]] in [[1997]].

Hermione is a particularly pretty girl or sometimes even refered to as gorgeous<ref name="GOF"/>, despite her bushy brown hair. She has a bossy sort of voice, and brown eyes.<ref name="PS" /> As a youngster, she had rather large front teeth, prompting insults from students such as [[Pansy Parkinson]] and [[Severus Snape]], her [[Potions]] [[Professor]], who once compared her to a chipmunk. Hermione had Nurse [[Poppy Pomfrey]] magically shrink them in [[1994]] after she was accidentally struck with a [[Densaugeo]] spell, making it unnecessary for her to receive the braces her parents had originally intended for her. When angered, her voice would become slightly shrill.<ref name="OOTP" />
 
   
Hermione never gave much attention to her appearance, except when she used great care in fixing her hair for the [[Yule Ball]] using [[Sleekeazy's Hair Potion]], which she later remarked was too much work to use every day. Many of her fellow students were stunned by how pretty Hermione looked that evening. She recieved many positive comments from her classmates on how beautiful she looked that evening.<ref name="GOF" /> [[File:Hermione_43.jpg|left|thumb|Hermione at the age of 17]] She keeps her hair long, as it was once described as a "long mane of brown hair,"<ref name="HBP" /> and sometimes ties it back in a plait.<ref name="DH" />

Hermione was described as being quite pretty when she made an effort at it,<ref name="GOF" /> but usually she hid her looks under a bushy hairstyle and a mountainful of books which she kept slung on her back.<ref name="PS" /> She had brown eyes, a bossy sort of voice and, as a child, rather large front teeth.

When angered, her voice would become slightly shrill.<ref name="OOTP" />
   
Clothing-wise, Hermione generally wore her school uniform under her robes. Otherwise, she dressed casually. For the Yule Ball, however, she wears a beautiful blue dress of floaty fabrics, and a lilac dress at the wedding of Bill and Fleur.

She is described as being rather plain-looking in her younger years. However, she had become more attractive later on{{fact}}, due not only to her looks, but also to her friendship with famous Harry Potter, involvement in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], and inclusion in the [[Slug Club]].

Hermione also aquired some scars during her years at [[Hogwarts]] and up untill the Battle of Hogwarts. It is unknown how many scars she aquired in total but there are two notable ones. One which ran as a thin line across her torso was given to her by [[Antonin Dolohov]] in her 5th year at Hogwarts, in the Battle at the [[Ministry of Magic]]. The second was given to her by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] when she, Harry and Ron were captured at Malfoy Manor while on the run during their 7th year.
+
Hermione's arm was scarred when [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] carved the word "Mudblood" into her skin with a [[Bellatrix Lestrange's knife|knife]] when she, Harry and Ron were captured at [[Malfoy Manor]] in the spring of [[1998]]. It is unlikely that this scar ever completely healed.

Hermione was noted for being extremely intelligent and hard-working, coming out on top in most of her classes and continuously helping Ron, Harry, and [[Neville Longbottom]] with their school work. She was given a [[Time-Turner]] in her third year to facilitate her taking many more courses than most students.<ref name="POA" /> She was so adept at school work at that she often had time to do hobby work on the side, such as preparing a defence for [[Buckbeak]] to save him from execution, and creating [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|S.P.E.W.]], an organisation promoting the freedom of [[House-elf|house-elves]].<ref name="GOF" /> Such acts demonstrate Hermione's social conscience, tenacity, and compassion.

Hermione was noted for being extremely intelligent and hard-working, coming out on top in most of her classes and continuously aiding Harry and Ron in their adventures.

Unlike most wizards who depended solely on their magical ability, Hermione readily relied on logic. Although this often helped her cleverly deduce information that many others missed, such as [[Remus Lupin]]'s [[Werewolf|lycanthropy]],<ref name="POA" /> Hermione's emphasis on logic also made her sceptical about accepting anything without proof, as opposed to Harry who would come to intuitive conclusions. For example, she completely dismissed the idea of the [[Deathly Hallows]], refusing to believe in them without physical evidence.<ref name="DH" />

Hermione was quite responsible, perfectionistic and well put-together, which led to her being made a prefect during her fifth year. Throughout her entire school career, Hermione was insistent on order and steadfastly devoted to the rules, at the expense of her popularity. Her sense of humor was limited; she frequently expressed disapproval over [[Fred and George|Fred and George's]] practical jokes and threatened to put them in detention for selling prank items in the common room. She often attempted to act as the voice of reason among her more impulsive friends, to varying levels of success.  However, in spite of her straightlaced disposition, Hermione was not above using coersion and threats to get what she wanted, as is evidenced by her blackmailing [[Rita Skeeter]] into writing a good article about Harry.<ref name="CS" /> Hermione was not afraid to stand up to her friends when she thought it was in their best interests, or when she felt they were wrong; she risked angering Harry by getting his [[Harry Potter's Firebolt broomstick|Firebolt]] confiscated because she feared it might be jinxed,<ref name="POA" /> and argued with both him and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] over his use of the shady Half Blood Prince's textbook.<ref name="HBP" /> Hermione was very determined and focused, in that she "always [kept] her attention focused on the job that must be done."<ref>[http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/2007/11/19/new-interview-with-j-k-rowling-for-release-of-dutch-edition-of-deathly-hallows 19 November 2007 Interview with J.K.

Because of her intelligence and her opinionated nature, Hermione had the reputation for being a bossy know-it-all. However, her sometimes abrasive confidence masked her insecurities and great fear of failure, as personified by her [[Boggart]].<ref name="JKRHG">[http://www.jkrowling.com/textonly/en/extrastuff_view.cfm?id=8 Extra Stuff: Hermione Granger] on [[J.K.Rowling Official Site|J.K.

Hermione also tended to be rather argumentative, a trait most evident in her interactions with Ron. Although she was generally not as short-tempered as her friends, she displayed a formidable one on several occasions, such as slapping Draco Malfoy in defence of [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid,]]<ref name="POA" /> blackmailing [[Rita Skeeter]] as revenge for her libel of Hermione and her friends in the press,<ref name="GOF" /> sabotaging [[Cormac McLaggen]]'s tryout as a [[Keeper]] for the [[Gryffindor Quidditch team]] after he insulted Ron and Ginny, and [[Avis|conjuring a flock of canaries]] to [[Oppugno|attack]] Ron in their sixth year.<ref name="HBP" />
 
 
Hermione seems to have a great deal of compassion, evidenced by her somewhat whimsical purchase of Crookshanks simply because "No one wanted him."
 
 
Hermione also cared for her children; when Ron joked about disinheriting the family members who weren't Sorted into Gryffindor, Hermione placated [[Rose Weasley|Rose]] and her cousin [[Albus Potter|Albus]].
 
   
Hermione is very similar to Harry's mother, Lily, in many ways. Both are Muggle-born, both were exceedingly bright witches, both had male best friends, and both fell in love and married one of their friends Lily married James, while Hermione later married Ron.

*'''[[Duel]]ling''': Hermione demonstrated her fighting ability on numerous occasions, showing remarkable [[duel]]ling skill for her age.

*'''[[Defence Against the Dark Arts]]''': Hermione was very skilled in this subject as she was able to earn an "Exceeds Expectations" in her O.W.L. In their first year she mastered Body-Bind Curse. In their third year when she took Professor Lupin's exam, Harry saw that she did everything perfectly except for the part of fighting the Boggart. Hermione mastered all spells while being taught by Harry in their fifth year at Dumbledore's army. She mastered the Stunning spell, Impediment jinx and more jinxes and hexes. She was the only one aside from Neville to master the shield charm and was also capable of using powerful spells such as the [[Blasting Curse]]. If Hermione became an Auror she would have excelled but instead dedicated herself to rebuilding the wizard laws.

*'''[[Charms]]''': Until she began studying [[Arithmancy]] in her third year, Hermione's favourite subject was [[Charms (class)|Charms]], and indeed some of her most impressive magical feats were charms. She not only achieved an '[[Outstanding]]' [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]] but also received a hundred and twelve percent in her first year Charms exam. Her array of protective charms defended her, Harry, and Ron for almost a year while they were searching for Voldemort's Horcruxes, while several far more experienced wizards were captured within months. She also enchanted her [[Hermione Granger's handbag|small handbag]] with an [[Undetectable Extension Charm]] to allow her to carry more items in the bag than physically allowed, which allowed her, Harry and Ron to survive the months spent out in the open.

She was able to identify potions and their effects quickly after having only read about them. She was the only one in her sixth year class who understood [[Golpalott's Third Law]], without need for further explaination and was able to compose an anidote containing fifty-two ingredients, including a chunk of her own hair. The only time she was ever out-smarted in potions was in her sixth year by [[Harry Potter]] because of using [[Severus Snape's copy of Advanced Potion-Making|Half-Blood Prince's old copy]] of the [[Advanced Potion-Making]] textbook that was full of hints and scribbles which helped Harry excel.<ref name="HBP" />

In 1994 she was the only one able to transform a [[Hedgehog to pincushion]]. She could also [[Vanishment|vanish]] objects, which is one of the hardest spells taught at [[Ordinary Wizarding Level]]. In 1995 she was able to vanish Harry Potter's [[potion]] after believing him to be finished with it and a kitten by mid-year the hardest vanishment challenge of all. Hermione was very skilled at [[conjuration]], an advanced type of transfiguration; for example, in her sixth year, she was able to conjure [[Avis|a flock of canaries]],<ref name="HBP" /> and by the [[1997|next year]], she could conjure a [[Orchideous|wreath of flowers]] and a flask [[Nonverbal magic|non-verbally]].

*'''[[Study of Ancient Runes]]''': Hermione was gifted in translating ancient runes into English. She earned an 'Outstanding' O.W.L. in the subject and took it to [[N.E.W.T.]]-level. This is what later helped lead her, [[Harry Potter]], and [[Ronald Weasley]] to the [[Deathly Hallows]].

*'''Logical thinking and intelligence''': Hermione had a mastery of logic that most wizards lacked, as she stated that "a lot of the greatest wizards haven't got an ounce of logic". In 1992, Hermione was able to use logic to get [[Harry Potter]] past a protective measure that was taken to protect the [[Philosopher's Stone]] by [[Severus Snape]]. Hermione was noted to be a "borderline genius"<ref name="WBUR" />, getting top scores in every class, and getting 'Outstanding' in all her [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.s]] except [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]]. However, her intelligence could be a handicap, as she tended to rely more heavily on facts and information that could be proven by background analysis rather than making intuitive leaps. She often provided the trio with vital information when carrying out research into the various mysteries they faced, for example in her second year she was the one to figure out through research that the monster in the [[chamber of Secrets]] was a [[Basilisk]] and in her third that [[Professor Lupin]] was a werewolf. Harry was generally the one to put the pieces together to create the final picture necessary to explain recent events.

*'''[[Muggle Studies]] (knowledge)''': This was one of the subjects Hermione chose to take in her third year with the aid of a [[time-turner]] but dropped the subject after a year. Hermione was a [[muggle-born]] [[witch]] anyway, and so knew a great deal about [[muggles]] already. She was seemingly good at it because she could bring another point of view to the class-room and the lessons. She achieved a score of over 300% on her final exam in third year.

*'''[[Bellatrix Lestrange's wand]]:''' In [[1998]], after the [[Skirmish at Malfoy Manor]], Hermione lost her own wand while Ron [[Disarming Charm|disarmed]] [[Bellatrix Lestrange]]. Harry grabbed Bellatrix's [[Bellatrix Lestrange's wand|wand]] as they left, and Hermione subsequently used it, though it did not work well for her, as she did not win its allegiance. Hermione used this wand at least until the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], when she fought Bellatrix with her own wand.<ref name="DH" /><br clear="right" />

*'''[[Advanced Rune Translation]]:''' Hermione owned a copy of this book, probably because it may have been required for her lessons in 6th year [[Ancient Runes]] which she started in her 3rd year with the aid of a time turner.

It is also mentioned to have information about Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Later, in [[1997]], Hermione considered taking this book with her as she was sorting supplies for their mission to find [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es. It is not specified if it was one of the books she decided to bring with her when she left with [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ron Weasley|Ron]]. It is, however, unlikely as it was of no real use to them on their mission.<br clear="right" />

Harry has always been protective over Hermione. Hermione returns the favour by always being loyal to him, helping and supporting him with everything, and was fiercely protective of him; for example, she snapped at [[Lavender Brown]] for doubting Harry's contention that [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]] had returned, and interceded when [[Dolores Umbridge]] threatened to use the [[Cruciatus Curse]] on Harry, coming up with a lie that eventually freed them from Umbridge and the [[Inquisitorial Squad|Inquisitorial Squad.]]<ref name="OOTP" /> She stuck by Harry even when Ron, her other best friend and her romantic interest, temporarily left during the search for the [[Horcrux]]es and asked her to go with him.<ref name="DH" />

Harry, for his part, is quick to defend Hermione from Cho Chang, Draco Malfoy, and others who insult her, protects her instinctively in dangerous situations, and shows his pride in her intellect on numerous occasions. One example is in their fifth year when Harry snapped angrily at [[Dolores Umbridge]] for taking five points from Gryffindor when Hermione was giving true opinions on Defense Against the Dark Arts and contradicting [[Wilbert Slinkhard]]'s opinions in his textbook ''[[Defensive Magical Theory]]'', though this was because Umbridge was simply teaching theory as she refused to teach practical magic due to her belief that Dumbledore was trying to take on the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry of Magic]].

Others, including [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], [[Cho Chang]], [[Viktor Krum]], [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley,]] [[Professor Dumbledore]], and several of their classmates have occasionally mistaken Harry and Hermione's relationship to be a romantic one, given their closeness and expressions of physical affection, such as Hermione kissing Harry on the cheek after the [[Triwizard Tournament]], usually being the first to be next to his bed whenever he is hurt or injured, choosing to stay with him rather than leaving with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], embracing each other, and holding hands.<ref name="GOF" /><ref>The film adaptation of ''Goblet of Fire'' expands on this by having Hermione and Harry being caught in a friendly embrace by [[Rita Skeeter]] who incorrectly interprets it as teen romance.

It is interesting to note that Albus Dumbledore's final plan to defeat Lord Voldemort, in which Harry would learn the story of the Deathly Hallows in time to use them against Voldemort, revolved not only around Harry himself, but Hermione as well. Dumbledore knew that Harry was too passionate and angry to be able to keep from attempting to become Master of Death, and so entrusted ''The Tales of Beedle the Bard'' to Hermione, so that she would learn of the Hallows' symbol first and would be able to caution and guide Harry down the path of reason. Harry and Hermione's is a joint role in which each inexorably needs the other, recalling ancient dualities like the head and the heart and the male and female of pagan religions.

Ronald Weasley was, essentially, the love of Hermione's life. Although their relationship would have many ups and downs, Hermione and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] were good friends for most of their years at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], and of course, were best friends with [[Harry Potter]], who was usually a mediator in their disputes. They tended to bicker frequently, though they usually got over their arguments, which tended to be minor or about trivial issues. As they grew older and matured, Ron and Hermione tended to fight less often and become more in touch with their feelings for each other. Hermione sometimes had the tendency of calling [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] "Ronald". Their first major falling-out was in their third year, when Ron accused Hermione's pet cat [[Crookshanks]] of eating his pet rat [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]].<ref name="POA" />

Hints of their feelings were also shown in their third year as after Ron saw [[Sirius Black|Black]] standing over him with a knife, Hermione was shocked and scared the most and even cried. They were both very awkward and embarrassed at times, being insecure with their own feelings for each other, and Ron was frequently jealous that Harry and Hermione liked each other. Ron was used to always being in Harry's shadow and didn't want the girl he liked to be also taken from him by his best friend. Ron and Hermione's relationship again suffered when Ron began dating [[Lavender Brown]] in [[1996]], though the two reconciled after Ron was accidentally poisoned, leaving Hermione shaken. Ron's relationship with Lavender ended soon after, and both he and Hermione were more content for it.<ref name="HBP" />

By the summer of [[1997]], the two were closer than ever and "sort of" together, according to Harry.

Hermione was extremely upset when Ron temporarily left her and Harry, crying often, and she was absolutely furious with him when he returned.

Some people had expected Ron and Hermione to become more than friends much sooner (when Ron was in the hospital wing after being poisoned and Hermione stayed with him holding his hand, Ginny said "About time, don't you think?") and Harry Potter had even thought that they would start dating in their sixth year. In 1997, when the Trio was captured by [[Snatchers]] and brought to [[Malfoy Manor]], [[Fenrir Greyback]] mistakenly called Ron Hermione's boyfriend when she tried to protect him. Also, Ron screamed and yelled and was in terrible distress when he heard Hermione being tortured by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] in Malfoy Manor.

Shortly afterwards, Hermione led Harry through [[Time-Turner|time-travel]], and together they rescued [[Sirius Black]] and [[Buckbeak]]; Hermione breaking the rules of using her Time-Turner, something she admitted was incredibly dangerous, demonstrated the strength of her friendship with Harry.<ref name="POA" /> The [[1994|following year]], Hermione was the only student who believed Harry when he told her he had not put his name in the [[Goblet of Fire]], and spent much of the [[Triwizard Tournament]] teaching Harry useful spells and trying to reconcile him and Ron.<ref name="GOF" />

Harry has always been protective over Hermione. Hermione returns the favour by always loyal to him, helping and supporting him with everything from fighting [[Death Eaters]] to school work, and was fiercely protective of him; for example, she snapped at [[Lavender Brown]] for doubting Harry's contention that [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]] had returned, and interceded when [[Dolores Umbridge]] threatened to use the [[Cruciatus Curse]] on Harry, coming up with a lie that eventually freed them from Umbridge and the [[Inquisitorial Squad|Inquisitorial Squad.]]<ref name="OOTP" /> She stuck by Harry even when Ron, her other best friend and her romantic interest, temporarily left them during the search for the [[Horcrux]]es and asked her to go with him.<ref name="DH" />
+
[[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]] was Hermione's best female friend. The two grew close when Hermione stayed in Ginny's room at [[the Burrow]] during her many summertime visits. Ginny was the only one Hermione told about being asked to the [[Yule Ball]] by [[Viktor Krum]],<ref name="GOF" /> while Hermione was the only one who knew that Ginny had been learning to fly in secret for years.<ref name="OOTP" /> She also gave Ginny advice about dealing with her feelings for Harry — advice that eventually led to the two dating<ref name="HBP" />, and eventually marrying. Hermione comforted Ginny after an encounter with [[Dementor]]s upset her in [[1993]],<ref name="POA" /> and after the death of her brother [[Fred Weasley|Fred]] in [[1998]].<ref name="DH" /> However, Hermione would not have been afraid to stand up to Ginny when she felt that Ginny was wrong. The two remained very close after [[The Second Wizarding War|the war]] and eventually became sisters-in-law when Hermione married Ron, making her an aunt to Ginny's three children, [[James Potter II|James]], [[Albus Potter|Albus]], and [[Lily Potter|Lily]], as well as being chosen to be godmother to Ginny's eldest son James, and making Ginny Rose and Hugo's aunt and almost certainly Rose's godmother.
Harry, for his part, was quick to defend Hermione from Cho Chang, Draco Malfoy, and others who insult her, protects her instinctively in dangerous situations, and shows his pride in her intellect on numerous occasions.

====Weasley family====
Others, including [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] (under the influence of a [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket|Horcrux]]), [[Cho Chang]], [[Viktor Krum]], and [[Molly Weasley|Mrs. Weasley]] have occasionally mistaken Harry and Hermione's friendship for a romantic relationship, given their closeness and occasional expressions of affection, such as Hermione kissing Harry on the cheek after the [[Triwizard Tournament]], usually being the first to be next to his bed whenever he is hurt or injured, choosing to stay with him rather than leaving with her love [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], embracing him between her arms in a friendly, though usually mistaken by other people, hug whenever he is scared, angry, sad, crying, etc.<ref name="GOF" /><ref>The film adaptation of ''Goblet of Fire'' expands on this by having Hermione and Harry being caught in a friendly embrace by [[Rita Skeeter]] who incorrectly interprets it as teen romance. In the film adaptation of ''Half-Blood Prince'' Harry asks Hermione to go to Slughorn's party as his date, but she declines, having already decided to take McLaggen to annoy Ron.</ref> But by Harry's description, they [[love]]d each other like siblings;<ref name="DH" /> notably, both were only children raised in the [[Muggle]] world. For the brief time the two travelled together without Ron, during the search for the Horcruxes, Hermione and Harry experienced some "charged moments," and shared something very intense of which no one else was a part.<ref>Behind the scenes footage of the upcoming ''Deathly Hallows'' adaptation suggests the film may expand on this.</ref> However, Hermione and Harry's relationship ultimately remained entirely platonic, and both remained faithful to and maintained strong romantic feelings for their own main love interests: Hermione for [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]], and Harry for [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]].<ref name="HAH">[[J.

[[File:Tumblr_lexby64vZ61qzetxfo1_1280.jpg|thumb|224px|Harry, Hermione along with the Weasley family at the Quiditch World Cup.]]Because of her friendships with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]], Hermione became friendly with the entire [[Weasley family]]. She spent a portion of many of her summer and [[Christmas holidays]] at their home of [[the Burrow]], and attended some family outings with them, such as shopping for school supplies in [[Diagon Alley]] and attending the [[1994]] [[Quidditch World Cup]] with them. [[Arthur Weasley]] was fascinated by the [[Muggle]] world and thus Hermione's background, and even invited Hermione's [[Granger family|parents]] for a drink upon first meeting them. [[Molly Weasley]] was fond of Hermione, though she treated her coldly for a brief time after [[Rita Skeeter]] printed lies about Hermione toying with the hearts of [[Harry Potter]] and [[Viktor Krum]], much to Hermione's bewilderment. After Harry explained that the stories were false, Mrs Weasley once again warmed up to Hermione. Also, she and [[Percy Weasley]] were considered to be on good terms until their fight over elf rights.
   
Hermione and Harry remained best friends into adulthood, and eventually became siblings in-law when Hermione married [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] and Harry married [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]]. Hermione was also the aunt and godmother of Harry's three children: [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], [[Albus Potter|Albus Severus]] and [[Lily Potter|Lily Luna]].

It is interesting to note that Albus Dumbledore's final plan to defeat Lord Voldemort, in which Harry would learn the story of the Deathly Hallows in time to use them against Voldemort, revolved not only around Harry himself, but Hermione. Dumbledore knew that Harry was too passionate and angry to be able to keep from attempting to become Master of Death, and so entrusted ''The Tales of Beedle the Bard'' to Hermione, so that she would learn of the Hallows' symbol first and would be able to caution and guide Harry down the path of reason. Harry and Hermione's is a joint role in which each inexorably needs the other, recalling ancient dualities like the head and the heart and the male and female of pagan religions.

===Ron Weasley===

[[Fred and George Weasley]] seemed to regard Hermione and Harry almost like other younger siblings, teasing them as well as being protective of them. When [[Draco Malfoy]] called Hermione a "[[Mudblood]]" in [[1992]], the twins were outraged, and attempted to attack him.<ref name="CS" /> Although Hermione disapproved of some of their antics, trying to use her status as a [[prefect]] to keep them in line, she still got on well with them. Hermione once argued with them that the [[Ageing Potion]] they planned on using to trick the age line protecting the [[Goblet of Fire]] wouldn't work because Dumbledore would have already thought of a foolish ageing potion. They didn't listen and tried to cross the line which resulted in them being thrown back and grow long, white beards.The only time she was notably angry with them was when they tested out their [[Skiving Snackbox]]es on unsuspecting [[first year]] students; though the twins initially scoffed at her concerns and her ability to make them stop, they backed down when she threatened to tell their [[Molly Weasley|mother]].

[[File:Ron-Hermione-kiss-romione.gif|frame|232px|Hermione and Ron's first kiss]]
 
   
Although their relationship would have many ups and downs, Hermione and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] were good friends for most of their years at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], and of course, were best friends with [[Harry Potter]], who was usually a mediator in their disputes. They tended to bicker frequently, though they usually got over their arguments, which tended to be minor or about trivial issues. As they grew older and matured, Ron and Hermione tended to fight less often and become more in touch with their feelings for each other. Hermione sometimes had the tendency of calling [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] "Ronald". Their first major falling-out was in their third year, when Ron accused Hermione's pet cat [[Crookshanks]] of eating his pet rat [[Peter Pettigrew|Scabbers]].<ref name="POA" />
+
However, Hermione still admired the cleverness and creativity of their spell work,<ref name="OOTP" /> once remarking that they could do some "extraordinary magic," which Fred was flattered enough by to offer Hermione material from their [[Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes|joke shop]] free of charge.<ref name="HBP" /> Fred and George also tried to get Hermione to relax, joking around with her about things such as their late uncle [[Bilius]]'s penchant for making mischief at weddings.<ref name="DH" /> Hermione was devastated when Fred was killed during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]]. Hermione was not as close to the other Weasley siblings, though she was invited to [[William Weasley|Bill]]'s [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] to [[Fleur Delacour]] in [[1997]].
   
[[File:DH1_Ron_and_Hermione_picking_up_stones.jpg|left|thumb|Ron and Hermione while the Hocrux hunt]]
+
With her marriage to Ron, Hermione became a part of the Weasley family herself.
   
Hints of their feelings were also shown in their third year as after Ron saw [[Sirius Black|Black]] standing over him with a knife, Hermione was shocked and scared the most and even cried. They were both very awkward and embarrassed at times, being insecure with their own feelings for each other, and Ron was frequently jealous that Harry and Hermione liked each other. Ron was used to always being in Harry's shadow and didn't want the girl he fancied to be also taken from him by his best friend. Ron and Hermione's relationship again suffered when Ron began dating [[Lavender Brown]] in [[1996]], though the two reconciled after Ron was accidentally poisoned, leaving Hermione shaken. Ron's relationship with Lavender ended soon after, and both he and Hermione were more content for it.<ref name="HBP" />
+
====Fleur Delacour====
  +
[[File:Fleur_Dealcour_promo.jpg|thumb|left|[[Fleur Delacour]].]]
   
{{Quote|Ron, you are the most insensitive wart I have ever had the misfortune to meet|Hermione tells Ron off for his insensitivity with girl's feelings (in this case, [[Cho Chang]]'s) in a dignified voice|Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix}}
+
Hermione first met [[Fleur Delacour]], an incredibly beautiful, [[France|French]], part-[[Veela]] [[Wizards|witch]], in [[1994]], during the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. Hermione disliked Fleur almost immediately, as she was given to fussily and loudly criticizing nearly everything at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], from the weather, to the decoration and food. The fact that Ron had a little bit of a crush on Fleur didn't help.
   
[[File:5-stills-mq-scarpotter-05_large.jpg|thumb|Hermione and Ron in their Fourth Year.]]
+
Hermione, like Ginny and [[Molly Weasley|Mrs Weasley]], was infuriated by Fleur's arrogance and constant complaining when [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] sent Fleur, his then fiancée, to [[the Burrow]] to get to know his family. However, when Fleur responded to Bill becoming permanently disfigured by [[Fenrir Greyback]] with indignant denial that Bill's appearance would in any way effect their marital plans, Hermione most likely set her feelings aside.
   
[[File:Ron-Hermione-Hands.JPG|thumb|250px|Hermione and Ron fell asleep holding hands]]
+
Despite seeming rather inconsiderate and self-centred, Fleur proved to be courageous and ultimately caring, even selfless, in her own way. She put her life in danger by posing as one of Harry's decoys in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], and after the [[Battle of Malfoy Manor]], Hermione, Harry and Ron, along with [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Dean Thomas]], and an injured [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]], stayed with Bill and Fleur for a month at [[Shell Cottage]], where Fleur took care of them all like a mother. Later, Fleur became Hermione's sister-in-law through her marriage to [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]], and Hermione's marriage to [[Ron Weasley]].
   
Hints of romantic feelings between the two could be seen as early as their [[1992|second year]], as Ron was particularly protective of Hermione and disgusted by her crush on [[Gilderoy Lockhart]].<ref name="CS" /> During the [[Yule Ball]] in [[1994]], Hermione was affronted by Ron's clumsy attempt to ask her to go with him, and Ron was jealous of her attendance with [[Viktor Krum]]; this jealousy would persist for years.

====Children====

In turn, Hermione was jealous of Ron's crush on [[Fleur Delacour]], though expressed it in a subtler way.
+
[[File:Hermione_and_Rose.jpg|thumb|250px|Hermione hugging Rose before Rose departs for [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|school]]]]
   
In their fifth year, Hermione kissed Ron on the cheek before the Quidditch Tournament, to which he reacted by being "puzzled" and touching the spot where she kissed him. During Gryffindor's Quidditch try-outs in their sixth year, Hermione also [[Confundus Charm|confunded]] Cormac McLaggen to increase Ron's chances of being made the team's Keeper. Also, Hermione became jealous (but she tried to conceal it) when Ron began dating [[Lavender Brown]] and kissing her frequently.{{Dialogue a-b-a|Hermione|I came running after you! I called you! I begged you to come back!|Ron|I know. Hermione, I'm sorry, I'm really—|Oh, you're ''sorry''! You came back after weeks — ''weeks'' — and you think it's all going to be all right if you just say sorry?... Weeks and weeks, we could have been ''dead''…|Hermione and Ron after the latter's return to her and Harry|Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows}}
+
After the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione had two children with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]], a daughter named [[Rose Weasley|Rose]] and a son named [[Hugo Weasley|Hugo]].
   
[[File:Ronhermyhbp.jpg|thumb|left|250px|Hermione and Ron in their [[1996|sixth year]].]]By the summer of [[1997]], the two were closer than ever and "sort of" together, according to Harry. They danced together at [[William Weasley|Bill]] and Fleur's [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]], and were generally kinder to one another. During the hunt for the [[Horcrux]]es, Ron comforted Hermione several times by putting his arm around her, and Harry believed that they might have fallen asleep holding hands. Hermione was extremely upset when Ron temporarily left her and Harry, crying often, and she was absolutely furious with him when he returned. It was also revealed, through a vision caused by the [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket|locket Horcrux]], that one of Ron's deepest fears was that Hermione preferred Harry to him.
+
Rose started her first year at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]] in [[2017]], along with her cousin, [[Albus Potter|Albus]]. Ron stated that Rose had inherited her mother's brains.
   
The two eventually made up, and Hermione initiated a kiss during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], when Ron suggested saving the [[house-elf|house-elves]] and not ordering them to fight for wizards. Hermione, who had been a promoter of house-elf rights since her fourth year and even started her own society to help house-elves (the [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare]]) was so delighted at Ron's unexpected display of sensitivity that she kissed him on the lips. The pair eventually married and had two children, [[Rose Weasley|Rose]] and [[Hugo Weasley]].<ref name="DH" />
+
Hermione was probably very close to Rose because she was also described as smart, yet not a complete know-it-all.
   
Some people had expected Ron and Hermione to become more than friends much sooner (when Ron was in the hospital wing after being poisoned and Hermione stayed with him holding his hand, Ginny said "About time, don't you think?") and Harry Potter had even thought that they would start dating in their sixth year. In 1997, when the Trio was captured by [[Snatchers]] and brought to [[Malfoy Manor]], [[Fenrir Greyback]] mistakenly called Ron Hermione's boyfriend when she tried to protect him. Also, Ron screamed and yelled and was in terrible distress when he heard Hermione being tortured by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] in Malfoy Manor.
+
Hugo was born in [[2006]] or [[2007]]. He most likely inherited his father's [[Quidditch]] skills, as he is noted to fly a lot with his cousins [[Albus Potter]] and [[James Potter II|James Potter]]. He also appears to have a quiet demeanour.

====Nieces and nephews====
[[File:Hermione and Ginny.jpg|thumb|220px|right|Hermione and Ginny.]]
+
As four of [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]]'s five surviving siblings were married by 2017, Hermione had quite a few nieces and nephews through her husband: [[Harry Potter|Harry]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] had three children ([[James Potter II|James]], [[Albus Potter|Albus]] and [[Lily Potter|Lily]]), as did [[William Weasley|Bill]] and [[Fleur Delacour|Fleur]] ([[Victoire Weasley|Victoire]], [[Dominique Weasley|Dominique]] and [[Louis Weasley|Louis]]), while [[George Weasley|George]] and [[Angelina Johnson]] had a son and a daughter ([[Fred Weasley II|Fred]] and [[Roxanne Weasley|Roxanne]]), and [[Percy Weasley]] had two daughters ([[Molly Weasley II|Molly]] and [[Lucy Weasley|Lucy]]) with his wife, [[Audrey Weasley|Audrey]]. [[Victoire Weasley]], one of Fleur and Bill's daughters, was seen kissing [[Ted Lupin|Teddy Lupin]] at [[King's Cross Station]], by [[James Potter II|James Potter]], Hermione's nephew and godson. Hermione visited them all on many occasions.
{{Dialogue a-b|Ginny|Hermione told me to get on with life, maybe go out with some other people, relax a bit around you, because I never used to be able to talk if you were in the room, remember?

[[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny Weasley]] was Hermione's best female friend. The two grew close when Hermione stayed in Ginny's room at [[the Burrow]] during her many summertime visits.

Hermione first met Luna on the [[Hogwarts Express]] in [[1995]]; she insulted ''[[The Quibbler]]'', but backtracked when Luna told her that her [[Xenophilius Lovegood|father]] was the editor. Hermione was frustrated with Luna's belief in all manner of things without proof or logical grounds, but eventually simply accepted their differences, telling Luna that her planned trip to [[Sweden]] in search of a [[Crumple-Horned Snorkack]] sounded "lovely." <ref name="OOTP" />
   
 
The [[1996|following year]], Luna comforted Hermione when she was upset over her fight with [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]].<ref name="HBP" /> Hermione was one of the five portraits Luna painted — along with Harry, Ron, Ginny, and Neville — and hung from her bedroom ceiling, the word “friends” linking them in gold writing. When [[Xenophilius Lovegood]] attempted to turn Harry, Ron, and Hermione over to [[Death Eaters]] in exchange for his daughter's safety, Hermione [[Ambush at the Lovegood House|engineered their escape]] so that the Death Eaters saw Harry briefly, thus ensuring that both Luna and her father were not harmed. Despite disagreeing with Luna on many things herself, Hermione defended her when others insulted her; for example, she tried to kick Ron for teasing Luna about [[Gurdyroot]]s at the [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] of [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] and [[Fleur Delacour]], and snapped at the [[Portraits|portrait]] of [[Phineas Nigellus Black]] for calling Luna an oddity. The two girls remained close friends in adulthood and saw each other regularly. Luna may be one of the best female friends of Hermione (along with Ginny), as she was only seen with these girls during her school-time at Hogwarts. <ref name="DH" />

[[Rubeus Hagrid]] was the [[Keeper of Keys and Grounds|Gamekeeper]] and [[Care of Magical Creatures]] professor at Hogwarts, as well as a member of the [[Order of the Phoenix]] during the [[First Wizarding War|First]] and [[Second Wizarding War]]s. Since Hagrid had met [[Harry Potter]] prior to the start of Hermione's first year at Hogwarts, Hermione grew closer to Hagrid as her friendship with Harry developed, eventually coming to visit him in his [[Rubeus Hagrid's cabin|hut]] regularly with Harry and [[Ron Weasley]]. In their second year, Hagrid comforted Hermione when she was called a "mudblood" by Draco Malfoy. Though she disapproved of Hagrid's penchant for collecting dangerous [[Creature|pets]], she tended to more pro-actively support him in his efforts to care for them than Harry and Ron, as when Hagrid was attempting to appeal the execution of [[Buckbeak]] and raise his half-brother [[Grawp]]. In turn, it was Hagrid who encouraged Ron and Harry to re-think their treatment of Hermione when the three had a brief falling out over Hermione getting Harry's new [[Firebolt]] confiscated in their third year. When [[Dolores Umbridge]] threatened Hagrid's job during the [[1995-1996 school year]], Hermione advised him to teach only materials related to their O.W.Ls, so as not to give Umbridge any excuse to fire him, and worked tirelessly to keep him on track.

Hermione was among the students who were very impressed by [[Remus Lupin]]'s teaching in 1993, when he was appointed [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] professor. Hermione deduced he was a [[werewolf]] during the school year, yet chose to keep it a secret in order to respect his privacy. Towards the end of the year, however, Lupin admitted that he was a werewolf to Harry, Ron and Hermione whilst in the [[Shrieking Shack]]. Following the events in this dilapidated building, Lupin became fully prepared to help [[Sirius Black]] kill [[Peter Pettigrew]], the wizard who betrayed [[James and Lily Potter]] to [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]. However, thanks to Harry's intervention, they chose not to commit the murder, inadvertently allowing Pettigrew to escape.

[[File:Sirius_animagus_1.png|thumb|left|160px|[[Sirius Black, her friend]]]]Hermione first learned about [[Sirius Black]] in [[1993]], when he escaped [[Azkaban]]. The wizarding world at large knew of him as the wizard who murdered twelve Muggles and a wizard ([[Peter Pettigrew]]) with a single curse. Very few knew of his affiliation with the Potters and those who did also believed that Sirius had betrayed [[James and Lily Potter]] to Voldemort by revealing their location at [[Godric's Hollow]]. During the events at Hogwarts in [[1993]], Hermione along with Harry, Ron and Lupin discovered that, contrary to their previous beliefs, [[Sirius Black]] had never committed the murders he had been incarcerated for and nor had he betrayed his closest friends. The trio managed to save Sirius and Lupin from being subjected to the [[Dementor's Kiss]] at the hands of [[Severus Snape]] by firing three simultaneous [[Disarming Charm]]s at him. Snape was blasted off his feet and knocked unconscious, allowing Harry, Ron and Hermione to continue their interrogation of Sirius who later revealed that Pettigrew had disguised himself in his rat [[Animagus]] form for twelve years in order to escape justice and the wrath of Voldemort's remaining Death Eaters. However, upon exiting the [[Whomping Willow]]'s secret passageway together, Pettigrew shrewdly used Lupin's werewolf transformation as a distraction and escaped. Sirius was soon apprehended and locked in [[Filius Flitwick]]'s office to await the Dementor's Kiss. Harry and Hermione would later use the latter's [[Time-Turner]] to [[Rescue of Sirius Black and Buckbeak|rescue]] Sirius, who became deeply grateful to both of them.

After the events of the Third Task, Sirius (while in his Animagus form) joined Hermione, Ron and [[Molly Weasley]] at Harry's bedside, each indicating their affections for the latter.

Here they discussed the many mysteries that had occurred during that year, the trio learning valuable pieces of information regarding the imprisonment of [[Bartemius Crouch Jr.|Barty Crouch Jr.]]. After the events of the Third Task, Sirius (while in his Animagus form) joined Hermione, Ron and [[Molly Weasley]] at Harry's bedside, each indicating their affections for the latter.
   
 
Hermione and Sirius would not meet again until the summer of [[1995]], at the Headquarters of the second [[Order of the Phoenix]]. Sirius was obliged to remain in [[12 Grimmauld Place]] for his own safety (his innocence not yet recognised by the Ministry). Sirius was rather disappointed when Harry was allowed to return to Hogwarts, Hermione pointing out that he had probably been secretly wishing that Harry had been expelled from school so that they could both stay at Grimmauld Place and be "outcasts together". Hermione expressed an even deeper understanding of Sirius's emotions when she stated her opinion to Harry that Sirius was attempting to relive his happier school days through his godson. Harry ignored this and became slightly agitated at the suggestion that Sirius might be guilty of such a crude mentality. Sirius was eventually killed by [[Bellatrix Lestrange]] in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]], much to the dismay of his friends and loved ones. Hermione was devastated by his death, and often tried to provide comfort to Harry, who had been even more deeply affected by the tragedy. At the end of the [[Second Wizarding War]], Hermione became godmother to Harry's eldest son, [[James Potter II|James Sirius]], whose first and middle name was derived from James Potter I and Sirius Black respectively.

===Fleur Delacour===

[[File:Fleur_Dealcour_promo.jpg|thumb|left|[[Fleur Delacour]].]]
 
 
Hermione first met [[Fleur Delacour]], an incredibly beautiful, [[France|French]], part-[[Veela]] [[Wizards|witch]], in [[1994]], during the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. Hermione disliked Fleur almost immediately, as she was given to fussily and loudly criticizing nearly everything at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]], from the weather, to the decoration and food. The fact that Ron had a little bit of a crush on Fleur didn't help.
 
 
Hermione, like Ginny and [[Molly Weasley|Mrs. Weasley]], was infuriated by Fleur's arrogance and constant complaining when [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]] sent Fleur, his then fiancée, to [[the Burrow]] to get to know his family. However, when Fleur responded to Bill becoming permanently disfigured by [[Fenrir Greyback]] with indignant denial that Bill's appearance would in any way effect their marital plans, Hermione most likely set her feelings aside.
 
 
Despite seeming rather inconsiderate and self-centred, Fleur proved to be courageous and ultimately caring, even selfless, in her own way. She put her life in danger by posing as one of Harry's decoys in the [[Battle of the Seven Potters]], and after the [[Battle of Malfoy Manor]], Hermione, Harry and Ron, along with [[Luna Lovegood]], [[Dean Thomas]], and an injured [[Garrick Ollivander]] and [[Griphook]], stayed with Bill and Fleur for a month at [[Shell Cottage]], where Fleur took care of them all like a mother. Later, Fleur became Hermione's sister-in-law through her marriage to [[William Weasley|Bill Weasley]], and Hermione's marriage to [[Ron Weasley]].

[[Severus Snape]] was the [[Potions (class)|Potions]] [[Potions master|Master]] during most of Hermione's time at [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. He was also the [[Head of Slytherin House]], and tended to openly show preferential treatment for the students of his own house, while being quick to criticise and deduct points from [[Gryffindor]] students. He was particularly unpleasant towards the trio, and regularly punished and verbally assaulted Harry and Ron for their poor to mediocre performances in his class. He could not do the same to Hermione, as she was the best student in the year and instead mocked her for things like being an "insufferable know-it-all," once even snidely insulting the size of Hermione's teeth<ref name="GOF" />. Despite his pre-existing dislike for Gryffindor<ref name="DH" />, Snape's treatment of Hermione likely had more to do with her close friendship with Harry. Despite this, Hermione was still seen to defend Snape on occasion when Harry and Ron blamed him for evil deeds which occured in [[Hogwarts]], like setting the troll in the dungeon and trying to steal the Philosopher's Stone in Harry's first year. After Dumbledore's Death, she like many, believed that Snape was a coward who killed a man who trusted him more than anyone. It is unknown exactly how she reacted to learning of Snape's true motives and allegiance, but given her personality, it is highly likely that she came to both forgive her former Professor's cruelty, and even admire him for his bravery.

As with most aspects of the [[Wizarding world]], Hermione read about [[Albus Dumbledore]] shortly after learning that she was a [[Wizards|witch]]. She first met the Hogwarts headmaster during her her first year at the school, in [[1991]], and quickly came to respect Dumbledore's immense power and seemingly infinite wisdom. Although Dumbledore was not as close with her as he was with [[Harry Potter]], he showed great insight into her character very early on. She was one of only three students Dumbledore bequeathed a personal item, as he believed her to be, along with [[Ron Weasley]], trustworthy of accompanying Harry on his mission to destroy [[Tom Riddle|Voldemort]]'s [[Horcrux]]es. He respected her intellect, perspicacity, and level-headedness, admitting to Harry that he had counted on Hermione to keep things in perspective when the trio finally discovered the existence of the [[Deathly Hallows]]. Hermione was devastated when Dumbledore was killed, and visited his [[Albus Dumbledore's portrait|portrait]] with Harry and Ron after the [[Battle of Hogwarts]] to determine the fate of the Hallows.

It is unknown what happened to Crookshanks after the [[Battle of Hogwarts]], as Hermione had left him at [[The Burrow|the Burrow]] before the [[Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour|wedding]] of Bill and Fleur, most likely has been left in care of Mrs. Weasley or Ginny but it is possible that they were reunited after the war.

When she overheard him insulting [[Ronald Weasley|Ron]] and [[Ginevra Weasley|Ginny]] during [[Quidditch]] try-outs, Hermione struck him with the [[Confundus Charm]], undermining his abilities as a [[Keeper]].

[[File:Pansypo.png|thumb|Pansy Parkinson]]Pansy was more or less Hermione's polar opposite: where Hermione was compassionate (i.e. [[SPEW]]), independent, and incredibly helpful to nearly anyone who needed it, Pansy was petty, mocked just about every non-Slytherin student she encountered (as well as [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]]), and was little more than one of Draco Malfoy's more sycophantic [[Draco Malfoy's gang|lackeys]]. Pansy had a tendency to taunt and snipe at Hermione, [[Harry Potter|Harry]], and [[Ron Weasley|Ron]] at any given opportunity, though Hermione rarely seemed more than slightly irritated by her comments; the major exception to that most likely would have been Pansy's attempt to surrender Harry to [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] shortly prior to the start of the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].

Hermione first learned about [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]], the most dangerous [[Dark Wizard]] of all time, after reading about him sometime before she began attending Hogwarts. During her first year, she and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] helped [[Harry Potter]] reach the [[Philosopher's Stone]] and protect it from Voldemort. A year later, she was petrified for being [[Muggle-born]] by [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk]], which was controlled by Tom Riddle's memory. In [[1995]], she learned that the Dark Lord had returned and supported Harry against the [[British Ministry of Magic|Ministry]]'s denial and smear campaign. She also fought in the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]] to prevent Voldemort from obtaining a vital [[Sybill Trelawney's first prophecy|prophecy]], but was severely injured and rendered unconscious. In [[1997]], she left Hogwarts to help Harry and Ron find and destroy Voldemort's horcruxes. She personally destroyed [[Helga Hufflepuff's Cup]] using a [[Salazar Slytherin's Basilisk|basilisk]]'s fang. She later witnessed Harry's defeat of Voldemort in the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].

However, Hermione made very little direct contact with Voldemort, truly seeing him for the first time during the [[Battle of the Department of Mysteries]]. Possibly the closest connection Hermione and Voldemort shared was through the former wearing [[Salazar Slytherin's Locket]] whilst travelling with [[Harry Potter]] and [[Ronald Weasley|Ron Weasley]] in 1997. The [[Horcrux]] locket was worn by all three for regular, though limited, periods of time, inadvertently allowing the portion of soul within to access the wearer's thoughts, emotions and deepest fears. The Horcrux had learned enough about Hermione to use hers and Harry's likenesses in emotionally torturing Ron, reflecting Ron's deepest fears of Hermione preferring Harry to him. Because the Horcrux had become so disconnected from the once whole soul of [[Tom Riddle]], the physically bodied Voldemort was not aware of any of these events, nor of the information the Horcrux had gained dangling around the necks of Harry and his closest friends. Although they had very little direct contact, Hermione and Voldemort are sometimes similar; both are model students who achieved outstanding grades in NEWTS. Both were Prefects, although Voldemort was Head Boy while Hermione skipped school during her seventh year, preventing her from being Head Girl. They both came form Muggle backgrounds, but Voldemort came form an orphanage while Hermione was brought up in a loving Muggle family.

All of the DA members grew closer over the course of the year (with the exceptions of [[Marietta Edgecombe]], who betrayed the DA to Umbridge, and later [[Zacharias Smith]], who deserted them), as evidenced by their reunion in [[1997]], and their enthusiasm in supporting Harry and mobilising against the invading Death Eaters during the [[Battle of Hogwarts]].

Hermione's relationship with [[Cho Chang]] was two-sided; while Hermione gave Harry advice on how to build a successful relationship with Cho, Cho grew increasingly jealous of Harry's close friendship with Hermione, believing that the two of them were romantically involved. Because of this, Cho went into a dramatic and tear-filled departure from her date with Harry when he mentioned that he promised to meet with Hermione, who would later comment sadly on how Harry went the wrong way on telling Cho about the appointed meeting. When Cho attempted to insult Hermione for [[Dumbledore's Army parchment jinx|jinxing]] her friend [[Marietta Edgecombe]] for betraying DA, Harry defended her and in turn insulted Marietta. However, when Hermione returned to Hogwarts during the last stand against Voldemort, any negative feelings for each other seemed to have evaporated, as Cho welcomed the trio.

[[Wikipedia:Hermione (mythology)|Hermione]] is also the name of a figure from Greek mythology, in which she was a princess of Sparta and daughter of Helen of Troy who was pursued by both Orestes and Neoptolemus, perhaps alluding to the jealousy and rivalry between Ron and [[Viktor Krum]] over Hermione. It is also the name of the heroine of Jean-Baptiste Lully's play ''[[Wikipedia:Cadmus et Hermione|Cadmus et Hermione]]'', based on the myth of the goddess of harmony, Harmonia, who married the founder of Thebes. The name ''Hermione'' is derived from the Greek god [[Wikipedia:Hermes|Hermes]], who was a messenger to the gods and the patron of various arts.

For all that, however, the name was chosen because Rowling thought it unusual enough that the few people who shared the name would endure teasing over it. In order to ensure correct pronunciation among fans, a scene was created between Hermione and Viktor Krum in ''[[Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire]]'' in which they discuss the correct pronunciation; the closest Krum got was "Herm-own-ninny."

[[Wikipedia:Granger (name)|Granger]] is another word for farmer; specifically, it was the title of a farm bailiff, who oversaw the collection of rent and taxes from the barns of a feudal lord. It is a surname of English and French origin, derived from the Anglo-Norman ''grainger'' and the French ''grangier'', both of which come from Latin ''granica'', meaning "granary." It recalls Hermione's [[Muggle]] roots. Also, "[[Wikipedia:Granger|Granger]]" is a term for a member of the Grange Movement of the United States, which involved agricultural activism in the nineteenth century, possibly alluding to Hermione Granger's [[Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare|activism]] on behalf of [[house-elf|house-elves]]. Her original last name was "Puckle," but Rowling later decided this didn't suit her character.

[[J. K. Rowling]] has said that she loosely based Hermione at the age of eleven on herself at the same age, though an exaggerated version:
 
   
:'''''"...none of the characters in the books are directly taken from life. Real people did inspire a few of them, but of course once they are on the page they become something completely different. But, yeah, Hermione is a caricature of what I was when I was eleven — a real exaggeration, I wasn't that clever — Hermione is a borderline genius at points — and I hope I wasn't that annoying...sometimes she is an incredible know-it-all."'''''<ref name="WBUR" />

Rowling has gone on to say that Hermione, Harry and Ron are all "a bit like different parts of my personality" as well as her favourite characters, along with [[Rubeus Hagrid]], [[Albus Dumbledore]], [[Fred and George Weasley]], and [[Luna Lovegood]],<ref name="EBF">[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2004/0804-ebf.htm J K Rowling at the Edinburgh Book Festival, Sunday, August 15, 2004]</ref> and that Hermione and Dumbledore were the most useful characters for [[wikipedia:Exposition (literary technique)|exposition.]]<ref name="DVD">[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2003/0302-newsround-mzimba.htm Chamber of Secrets DVD interview with Steve Kloves and J.K.

Rowling has also stated that, from a feminist point of view, she is very proud of Hermione. In her words, Hermione does not "play the game" in refusing to sacrifice parts of herself as she grows from a girl to a woman. Hermione never makes Ron "feel better" by pretending to be less than she is; she always preserves who is and waits for Ron to catch up. In general, Rowling regards her as a heroine, but isn't sexy nor entirely sexless, but a "real girl."

*In ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]]'', [[Harry Potter|Harry]] mentions that the only spell Hermione ever had trouble with was the [[Patronus Charm]], although she was among the first of the D.A. to master the spell and casts it successfully multiple times throughout the series.

It may also have something to do with the caster's self confidence as JK has stated that Hermione is afraid of failure and Harry's first powerful uses of the spell, at a Quidditch match and when he saved Sirius, seemed more motivated by his confidence rather then a positive memory.

Hermione was also seen trying not to cry in the second film after Draco Malfoy called her a filthy little Mudblood since she was aware of the term, which contradicts the events of the novel in which she doesn't know what the word 'Mudblood' means until Ron explains it to her and Harry.

[[File:TI4U_u1141962737.jpg|thumb|160px|Hermione Granger in her [[1992|second year]].]]
  +
[[J. K. Rowling]] has said that she loosely based Hermione at the age of eleven on herself at the same age, though an exaggerated version:
  +
  +
:'''''"...none of the characters in the books are directly taken from life. Real people did inspire a few of them, but of course once they are on the page they become something completely different. But, yeah, Hermione is a caricature of what I was when I was eleven — a real exaggeration, I wasn't that clever — Hermione is a borderline genius at points — and I hope I wasn't that annoying...sometimes she is an incredible know-it-all."'''''<ref name="WBUR" />
  +
  +
Rowling has gone on to say that Hermione, Harry and Ron are all "a bit like different parts of my personality" as well as her favourite characters, along with [[Rubeus Hagrid]], [[Albus Dumbledore]], [[Fred and George Weasley]], and [[Luna Lovegood]],<ref name="EBF">[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2004/0804-ebf.htm J K Rowling at the Edinburgh Book Festival, Sunday, August 15, 2004]</ref> and that Hermione and Dumbledore were the most useful characters for [[wikipedia:Exposition (literary technique)|exposition.]]<ref name="DVD">[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2003/0302-newsround-mzimba.htm Chamber of Secrets DVD interview with Steve Kloves and J.K. Rowling, February 2003]</ref> She also identified Hermione as "the most brilliant" of her group of friends and confirmed that "Harry needs her badly."<ref>[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2000/0600-times-treneman.html 30 July 2000 Times Interview with J.K. Rowling]</ref> Rowling has also said that she considers Hermione to be "a very strong female character," as well as "the brightest character."<ref>[http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2001/0101-oprah.html January 2001 Interview with ''O Magazine'']</ref>
  +
  +
Rowling has also stated that, from a feminist point of view, she is very proud of Hermione. In her words, Hermione does not "play the game" in refusing to sacrifice parts of herself as she grows from a girl to a woman. Hermione never makes Ron "feel better" by pretending to be less than she is; she always preserves who she is and waits for Ron to catch up. In general, Rowling regards her as a heroine, but isn't sexy nor entirely sexless, but a "real girl."
  +
  +
Rowling admitted in an interview conducted by Emma Watson for the magazine ''Wonderland'' in February of 2014 that, with hindsight, she had second thoughts on the suitability of Ron as a partner for Hermione and believes that in some ways, Harry might have made a better romantic partner for her:
  +
:'''''"I wrote the Hermione-Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment. That's how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione [ended up] with Ron."'''''
  +
She went on to say that she found the attraction itself plausible, but that the combative side of it might cause problems in an adult relationship as there was too much fundamental incompatibility. However, according to Rowling, they could "probably be alright" with a bit of marriage counselling, and Ron needed to work on his self-esteem issues while Hermione needed to learn to be less critical. She concluded with the statement that just like herself, the uptight Hermione had a real weakness for a funny man.<ref>[http://www.mugglenet.com/jkrint-wonderland-020714.shtml February 2014 Interview with ''Wonderland'']</ref>

Harry Potter: "But why's she got to go to the library?"

Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley on Hermione.[src]

Hermione Jean Granger (b. 19 September, 1979[1]) was an English muggle-born witch and the only daughter of Muggle Mr and Mrs Granger, both dentists in London. At age eleven, Hermione learned that she was a witch and had been accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She began attending the school on 1 September, 1991 where she was subsequently sorted into Gryffindor House. She possessed a brilliant academic mind and proved to be a gifted student. She was very studious and bookish. Along with Harry Potter and a few others, she was relatively little intimidated by Lord Voldemort's name, calling him by his name, instead of You-Know-Who or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Hermione first met Harry Potter and Ron Weasley aboard the Hogwarts Express. Both boys found Hermione unfriendly and a know-it-all. Later her eagerness to please her professors and her constantly correct answers reinforced their initial impression. However, in spite of the cool relationship between the three, Hermione stepped in to take the blame from Ron and Harry after they had saved her from a troll on Hallowe'en. Harry and Ron were surprised but grateful, and the three quickly became friends. In her second year, Hermione fell victim to a basilisk unleashed upon Hogwarts following the opening of the Chamber of Secrets but was returned from her petrification under the care of Madam Pomfrey with the assistance of Professor Sprout's Mandrake Restorative Draught. The following year, Hermione was granted permission to use, and was sent, a Time-Turner from the Ministry of Magic to facilitate her volition to study far more subjects than was possible without time travel. Later in the year, she and Harry would use the Time-Turner to rescue Sirius Black from the Dementor's Kiss as well as Buckbeak the hippogriff from execution. During her fourth year at Hogwarts, Hermione became an advocate for the better treatment of house-elves, forming the association S.P.E.W. In her fifth year, she was the driving force behind the creation of Dumbledore's Army. Later in her fifth year she fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. In her sixth year she fought in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and, at the beginning of what would be her seventh year, the Battle of the Seven Potters in 1997. Hermione, as well as Ron — with whom she had become romantically involved — decided not to return to Hogwarts for their final year of studies and instead chose to accompany Harry on his quest to find and destroy Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes. She then fought in, and survived, the Battle of Hogwarts.

Following the Second Wizarding War, Hermione went back to Hogwarts to complete her education at Hogwarts. Later she found employment with the Ministry of Magic, furthering the cause for the better treatment of house-elves, before being promoted to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement. She eventually married Ron Weasley, and together they had two children: a daughter, Rose, and a son, Hugo. Hermione became the godmother of Harry and Ginny Potter's eldest son James.

Apparent pre-Hogwarts photos of Hermione

Not much is known about Hermione's life before she entered the wizarding world. She was the only child[4] of Muggle parents, Mr and Mrs Granger, both dentists in London. Mr and Mrs Granger were seen as "quite ordinary" and although they were "a bit bemused" by the oddities displayed by their daughter, they were known to be proud of her.

In the summer of 1991, Hermione was surprised to learn that she was a witch and was invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She eagerly accepted and took to studying magic even before she began her first year at Hogwarts in the September of 1991, learning all the set spell books by heart and even managing to perform "a few spells" successfully. In addition to the texts set by the school, Hermione brought with her several other books for reference and to further her understanding of the wizarding world.[5]

Hermione's enthusiasm in class

Hermione enjoyed her years as a pupil at Hogwarts, and took assignments, classes, and school rules very seriously. Her favourite subject was initially Charms, and later Arithmancy, and the only areas of study that gave her trouble were Flying and Divination. Some students, such as Terry Boot, wondered why Hermione was sorted into Gryffindor house rather than Ravenclaw, given her keen mind. Hermione admitted that the Sorting Hat did consider putting her in Ravenclaw. Being sorted into Gryffindor, Hermione would share a dormitory with Lavender Brown, Parvati Patil, Fay Dunbar and another girl.[6]

But she proved her rightful place in Gryffindor with her steadfast bravery and loyalty to her friends, Hogwarts, and Dumbledore's Army. It is likely that the Sorting Hat put her in Gryffindor in the first place, because she chose to be in it, just like Harry chose to not be in Slytherin; on the train, she mentions that, "Gryffindor...sounds by far the best."
