Ollivander (fl. 382 B.C.) was the wizard who arrived at Britain from, apparently, a Mediterranean country, and set up Ollivanders Wand Shop in 382 B.C.. An expert wandmaker, Ollivander sold to ancient British wizards whose wands were crude of construction and unreliable in performance.[2]

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Ollivander was apparently an ancient Roman wizard. Based on the etymology of his name, which is said to mean "he who owns the olive wand", he may have been brought up in a Mediterranean country (olive trees not being native to Great Britain).[2]

Career as a wandmakerEdit

It is believed by Garrick Ollivander, a descendant of this individual, that the founder of Ollivanders Wand Shop arrived with the Romans, setting up a stall (subsequently a shop) to manufacture and sell wands to the ancient British wizards, whose wands were crudely-made and inferior in quality and performance.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Despite Garrick Ollivander's claims that the original Ollivander arrived to Great Britain with the Romans, this individual started his wand-making business in 382 B.C. but the Roman conquest of Britain (Britannia) only began effectively in A.D. 43, under Emperor Claudius.

AppearancesEdit

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Pottermore - The Ollivander family are listed among the Sacred Twenty-Eight. However, it is unknown how far back into the family's history Cantankerus Nott researched to make that claim.
