There will forever and always be only one Harry Potter in our hearts who we hold near and dear…
Or will there?
J.K. Rowling has just revealed to the globe some news that has us all shook:
There are actually two Harry Potters.
Okay, it’s not like a Polyjuice Potion went wrong and someone got stuck as Harry forever. It’s much more simple than that.
J.K. revealed in a Pottermore post that the Potter family has had two Harry’s.
In addition to our beloved Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived, he has a great-grandfather who went by the name of Harry as well.
His great-grandpa’s name was actually Henry, but everyone knew him as Harry, and he “served on the Wizengamot (aka high Wizard court) from 1913 to 1921.”
He caused a "minor stir when he publicly condemned then Minister for Magic, Archer Evermonde, who had forbidden the magical community to help Muggles waging the First World War.”
She also revealed that his “outspokenness on the behalf of the Muggle community” was a “strong contributing factor in the family’s exclusion from the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight,’” a group of ‘truly pure-blood’ wizarding families from the 1930s.
