Description

Various witches and wizards try to kill Harry Potter

The plot to kill Harry Potter was one of the main purposes of the Second Wizarding War, in which various witches and wizards attempted to assassinate Harry Potter.

Attempts

Wedding of Bill and Fleur

In August 1997, William Weasley and Fleur Delacour married at the Weasley family home in Ottery St. Catchpole, The Burrow. Late that evening, the Death Eaters overtook the British Ministry of Magic, killing Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour and replacing him with Pius Thicknesse, who was at the time under the Imperius Curse. They then crashed the wedding; mostly all of the guests got away alright and went into hiding.

Ambush at the Lovegood House

"They took my Luna because of what I’ve been writing. They took my Luna and I don’t know where she is, what they’ve done to her. But they might give her back to me if I – if I… They will be here any moment. I must save Luna. I cannot lose Luna. You must not leave."
—Xenophilius moments before Death Eaters arrive at his doorstep.[src]

Xenophilius Lovegood revealed that Death Eaters has captured his daughter Luna in order to force him to cease his public political dissension. When the trio came to visit Lovegood to ask him about the Deathly Hallows, Xenophilius contacted the Voldemort-controlled Ministry that Harry was in his home in the hopes that they would return Luna in exchange. Soon after Xenophilius had explained to them what the Deathly Hallows were, his house was visited by two Death Eaters. Xenophilius' shot a stunning spell at Harry but missed its target and instead struck an Erumpent horn which exploded. Hermione then blasted the floor beneath them so that the Death Eaters could catch a glimpse of her and Harry (Ron was under the invisibility cloak) before disapparating, in the hopes that they would spare Xenophilius' live and return Luna.

Battle of Hogwarts

On 2 May, 1998, Lord Voldemort and his army attacked Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in order that Voldemort might finally kill Harry Potter; he gave the school until midnight to hand him over and they then fought. The siege lasted until dawn, when Harry and Voldemort faced off in the Great Hall; Harry disarmed Voldemort, and the spell caused Voldemort's wand, still shooting its final spell, flew across the hall and killed the master it would not serve.
