Mr. Potter married a [[James Potter's mother|pure-blood witch]], and together the couple had one son, [[James Potter I|James Potter]], who was born on [[27 March]], [[1960s|1960]].

James later married the [[Muggle-born]] witch, [[Lily Evans]], in around [[1978]]-[[1979]]. Shortly after their son's wedding, both Fleamont and Euphemia (who were advanced in age) succumbed to [[dragon pox]], dying within days of each other.<ref name="PotterFamilyPottermore" /> However, they had presumably died happy, for they have had the satisfaction of living long enough to see their son settled in life and married to a fine young woman.

James and his wife [[Lily Evans|Lily]] were murdered by [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]] on [[31 October]], [[1981]].

Fleamont Potter (died c. 1979) was a pure-blood wizard and Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He was the son of Henry Potter, the father of James Potter, and the paternal grandfather of Harry Potter. He was also the great-grandfather of James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna Potter.

BiographyEdit

ChildhoodEdit

Fleamont was born into the wealthy pure-blooded family, to Henry Potter, a prominent Wizengamot member.[2] He was named after his paternal grandmother's maiden name, as it was her dying wish that he perpetuate her maiden name, which would otherwise die out.[2]

He started at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the age of eleven and was Sorted into Gryffindor House.[3] Due to the teasing he got for his first name, he often got into fights over it, which he would later attribute his dexterity at duelling to.[2] At some point and per the family tradition, he inherited the Cloak of Invisibility from his father Henry Potter, who was a distant descendant of Ignotus Peverell.[2]

After his graduation, Fleamont developed the Sleekeazy's Hair Potion, sales of which quadrupled the family gold. Upon retirement, he sold the company at a vast profit.[2]

Marriage and familyEdit

Fleamont married Euphemia Potter, and although the family prospered, they had difficulty in bearing children. They had given up hope of having a son or daughter when, later on in their life, to their shock and surprise, Euphemia became pregnant.[2] Their son, James, was born on 27 March, 1960.[4] The Potters had James later in their lives; he was their only child, and was pampered and cherished accordingly.[5]

Around 1976, Fleamont and Euphemia took in their son's best friend, Sirius Black, who had run away from home at age 16, because his family hated him. They treated Sirius like a second son. Though Sirius stayed in the Potter home for only a year, eventually using money inherited from his uncle, Alphard Black, to buy his own flat, Mr and Mrs Potter always welcomed him over for Sunday dinner thereafter.[6]

Death and postmortemEdit

James later married the Muggle-born witch, Lily Evans, in around 1978-1979. Shortly after their son's wedding, both Fleamont and Euphemia (who were advanced in age) succumbed to dragon pox, dying within days of each other.[2] However, they had presumably died happy, for they have had the satisfaction of living long enough to see their son settled in life and married to a fine young woman.

With their deaths, James inherited an invisibility cloak that had been passed down through the Potter family for many generations[7][8], and the considerable Potter fortune (which enabled him and his wife to lead a comfortable but all too brief life).[7]

Fleamont's and Euphemia's deaths also meant that they did not meet their grandson, Harry, who would be born on 31 July, 1980, nor did they realize tragedy would beset the House of Potter soon thereafter.

MirrorofErised

Harry Potter seeing his mother, father, and other relatives in the Mirror of Erised.

Since Harry was, himself, orphaned at a very young age, it soon became his heart's desire to meet his family. When, in 1991, he glimpsed into the Mirror of Erised, Harry saw his grandparents, on both his father's and his mother's side, among a number of other relatives he had never met.[9]

Physical appearanceEdit

When Fleamont's grandson Harry looked into the Mirror of Erised and saw his family, he noted several individuals who had "green eyes like his, other noses like his, [and] even a little old man who looked as though he had Harry's knobbly knees." While it is almost certain that Fleamont Potter could not have had green eyes, which Harry inherited from his mother, Lily Evans, he may have been one of the other individuals who shared traits with his descendants. Fleamont Potter did not wear glasses.

Magical abilities and skills Edit

  • Martial magic: Due to the numerous times he had to fight people at Hogwarts after they had made fun of his name, Fleamont was a skillful duelist.
  • Potions: Fleamont was an accomplished potioneer. After his graduation from Hogwarts, he invented the Sleekeazy's Hair Potion, and in doing so founded a potion-making company.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • It was once presumed that Charlus Potter and Dorea Black, who appeared on the Black family tree, might have been James's parents (since it was known that Charlus and Dorea also had one son). However, J. K. Rowling revealed via Pottermore that that is not the case. It is still more than likely, however, that Charlus Potter is some sort of relative of Fleamont's.
