The grandfather of Neville Longbottom (before 1947—between 1980 and 1995) was a pure-blood wizard. He died while his grandson was present, thus enabling Neville to see Thestrals years later. He revealed as much to Dolores Umbridge during her time evaluating a Care of Magical Creatures lesson. Neville mentioned that, in 1947, his grandfather put a fanged gerbil into his grandmother's handbag as a joke, and that after this, she kept a mousetrap in her bag at all times.

He may have had at least one sibling[1].

Behind the scenes


Notes and references

  1. Pottermore - Writing by J.K. Rowling: "The Quill of Acceptance and The Book of Admittance" states that Neville had "disappointed great aunts and uncles"; Algie and Enid are one of each... making two more that are unaccounted for; it is unknown as to whether they are Augusta's siblings or her husband's, making it possible that either one had at least one sibling.
