Shouldn't her name be Walburga Black (nee' Black)? Cause she was called Walburga Black when she was born and she married a Black. Inbred wizards are sooooo complicated, espiecally Orion and Walburga!

The word 'née' is French for 'born'. If you put it all into English, it would mean Walburga Black (born Black). I can see where you're coming from but it's not necessary - only when the name has changed is there any need to state their maiden name. 220.127.116.11 13:59, May 1, 2011 (UTC)
is it quite possible given how psychotic her protrait is, its possible insanity was beginning to linger in the Black family as it did with the house of Gaunt, due to inbreeding and a fanatical belief in blood purityP3891 05:31, May 8, 2012 (UTC)
If Walburga is supposed to keep record of the tapestry and blast off her relatives' faces, then who put her death date on the tapestry? Bellatrix was in Azkaban, Andromeda porbably wouldn't care, Regulus, Cygnus, Orion and Alphard were dead and Sirius was also in Azkaban. The only possibilities are Lucretia Black and Narcissa Black. Another possibility is that information is recorded automatically i.e. by means of magic.
House of My Fathers
The expression "the house of my fathers" does not necessarily mean that she lived there as a child. It is not the same thing as saying "this was my father's house." In fact, even if she did say that, the fact that it was her "father's house" does not necessarily mean that she, herself, grew up there.
There is a house that has been in my paternal line going back to around 1850. It could properly be called "the house of my fathers" using the same meaning as "ancestral home." However, neither I not my father have ever lived there. That is not what the phrase means. Wva (talk) 16:57, April 8, 2015 (UTC)
