James and Ginny Potter on Victoire and Teddy Lupin's blossoming relationship[src]

Victoire Weasley (born on 2 May,[1] c. 2000 or 2001[2]) was a part-Veela witch and the eldest child of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour.[3]


Early life

Victoire was born on 2 May[1] in the first years of the 21st century. She is the oldest of all her Weasley cousins.[2] She was given her name, which means "victory" in French, because her date of birth fell on the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, in which the Order of the Phoenix and its allies prevailed against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters[1]. She has two younger siblings: a sister, Dominique, and a brother, Louis[4]. Through her maternal great-grandmother, Victoire is one-eighth Veela. It is possible she lived at Shell Cottage with her family.

Victoire began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the early 2010s. At some point, she entered into a romantic relationship with Teddy Lupin, who was at least two years above her. On 1 September, 2017, Victoire's by-then-graduated boyfriend came to see her off for another year at King's Cross Station. Victoire's cousin, James Potter, saw the couple snogging and interrupted them. When Teddy told him to leave, James returned to tell his family what he had seen, and his younger sister, Lily, expressed her wish that Teddy and Victoire would marry someday, making Teddy an official part of the extended Weasley-Potter clan.[5]

Physical appearance

Victoire was described as "very good-looking,"[3] which presumably indicates that she took after either her mother, Fleur, or her father, Bill, or both, in appearance. It could also link to her Veela ancestry, which might consequently make her beauty more profound.


Victoire means "victory" in French, the native language of her mother Fleur Delacour, probably chosen because she was born on the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. It is also the feminine version of the male given name Victor. If she was given the name because it was the feminine version of Victor, it could refer to her mother's friend (Viktor Krum) who was also in the Triwizard Tournament.

  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Victoire is at least two years younger than Teddy Lupin. If she was only a year below him at Hogwarts, she would have been born between September 1998 and August 1999, and would not have returned for another year in September 2017, as she did, because she would have already graduated that June.
