The grandfather of Neville Longbottom (before 1947[1]—between 1980 and 1995) was a pure-blood wizard. He died while his grandson was present, thus enabling Neville to see Thestrals years later. Neville revealed as much to Hagrid and Dolores Umbridge during her time evaluating a Care of Magical Creatures lesson.

He may have had at least one sibling[3].

Behind the scenesEdit


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 It is unknown whether he is the maternal or paternal grandfather of Neville. In The Queen's Handbag, Neville says he had a grandfather who put a fanged gerbil in his grandmother's handbag in 1947. If he is the husband of Augusta, then he would have been born before 1947.
  2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 21 (The Eye of the Snake)
  3. 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.
