The Longbottoms were placed in the [[Janus Thickey Ward]] for spell damage at [[St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries]], where they stayed permanently. As a result their son Neville was raised by his grandmother, [[Augusta Longbottom]].

"My son and his wife were tortured into insanity by You-Know-Who's followers. They were Aurors, you know, and very well respected within the wizarding community. Highly gifted, the pair of them."
Augusta Longbottom regarding her son and daughter-in-law[src]

Longbottom is the surname of a pure-blood wizarding family, and one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight. They are related to the Black and Abbott families, and more distantly to the Weasley, Crouch and Potter families.[2]

Most Longbottoms do not appear to hold prejudice based on blood purity, although there are indications that they are considered more respectable than the Weasleys. For example, Callidora Black was not disowned by her family for marrying Harfang Longbottom,[2] implying that he was not considered a blood traitor. Their respectability may also stem from both Frank and Alice's popularity as accomplished Aurors. The last few generations of the Longbottom family, however, had strong connections to the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore's Army, clearly opposing notions of pure-blood supremacy.[3][4]

Recent family history Edit

Harfang Longbottom was a pure-blood wizard who married Callidora Black. The couple had two children, a son and a daughter.[5]

Frank and Alice Longbottom are the parents of Neville Longbottom. They were both Aurors and members of the original Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War before they were tortured to insanity by BellatrixRodolphus, and Rabastan Lestrange; and Bartemius Crouch Jr.. The Longbottoms were placed in the Janus Thickey Ward for spell damage at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, where they stayed permanently. As a result their son Neville was raised by his grandmother, Augusta Longbottom.

Throughout his school years, Neville was mostly a shy, clumsy, introverted boy who was constantly being told by his grandmother that he was not good enough or living up to his parents' accomplishments. He and his grandmother would frequently visit his parents in the spell damage ward at St. Mungo's. However, in his later years, he showed that he possessed great courage and perseverance: he became an important member of Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter. Neville would later fight in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, and the Battle of Hogwarts. During the Battle of Hogwarts, having refused Lord Voldemort's invitation to join the Death Eaters, he destroyed the seventh and final Horcrux when he beheaded the snake Nagini. He also co-led the D.A. during his final year in opposition to the Death Eater professors.

After the end of the Second Wizarding War, Neville briefly served as an Auror before becoming Hogwarts' professor of Herbology and marrying Hannah Abbott. It is currently unknown if the two ever had any children.
