Ginny Weasley Birthplace


Ginny Weasley was born in Great Britain. She was raised in a pureblood wizard family in Ottery St. Catchpole. She was the first girl in the Weasley family, with six older brothers. 

Ginny Weasley Parents

Ginny’s mother, Molly, and father, Arthur, are pureblood wizards. Her mother is overprotective and genuinely loving. Molly is highly regarded for how easily she extends her love to everyone around her family, including their close friends, her astounding cooking and cleaning, and the unique clock that always tells her where her family members are, including Ginny. Her father works for the Ministry of Magic in the Muggle Department. Arthur is always intrigued by how muggles can get around without using magic. He loves his family dearly and bestows upon them the same genuine care, concern, and protection that Molly does. They are an incredibly loving couple and set a great example for their daughter.

Ginny Weasley’s Physical Traits

Ginny Weasley is known for having bright red hair, the same as everyone else in her family. She’s known to be very funny, and even members of Slytherin’s house admit that she’s popular with the boys; many boys think she’s attractive, funny, and smart. In addition to her physical traits, she grows into a forceful, independent girl with a lively personality. She demonstrated her ability to regularly stick up for other people throughout the books, starting with her fiercely defending Harry Potter against Draco Malfoy and later standing up to Neville Longbottom’s self-doubt.

Owing to the fact that she was raised with six older brothers, she’s very difficult to frighten; she doesn’t get scared when Harry Potter throws a tantrum or goes into a rage, even when Hermione and Ron back off in fear. She plays with Crookshanks, Hermione’s cat when no one else will, and she is even fond of Mrs. Norris, showing remorse and sadness when Mrs. Norris is petrified.

Ginny Weasley Early Life

We learn a lot about Ginny Weasley’s early life from the first few books. She is introduced in  Harry Philosopher’s Stone as a young child with flaming red hair who stuck to her mother’s side and was sad that she didn’t get to go to Hogwarts and all of her older brothers got to go. She displays some of the characteristic traits of the youngest child who always has hand-me-down clothes, always gets teased by the older siblings, and most importantly, always gets left behind most of the time, something epitomized by her being the last to attend Hogwarts and therefore feeling left behind while all of her older brothers get to go.

She grew up in a very loving family where she learned quite a bit from her older siblings, especially Fred and George Weasley, even if they teased her a little bit. She was introduced to flying a broomstick very early, constantly sneaking into the yard, and flying on her brother’s broomsticks when they weren’t looking, another quintessential trait of a younger sibling. Having older brothers, she held her own in the face of bullies like Draco Malfoy from a young age.

However, she developed a crush on Harry Potter very early. This represents that common experience where an older sibling brings their friends over, and a younger sibling develops a crush. However, in this case, the crush rendered her unable to speak. She was always bright red and shocked when she was around him for the first few years until she was encouraged to loosen up.

Ginny Weasley Hogwarts Years

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone


In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, we meet Ginny Weasley, introduced as the youngest and only female of the Weasley family with flaming red hair who is upset that she doesn’t get to go to Hogwarts like the rest of her siblings. Not much else happens with her until she begins her academic career.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

After rescuing Harry Potter from his aunt and uncle’s house, where he had been locked away, Harry Potter spends the rest of his summer vacation at the Weasley’s house, where Ginny makes multiple awkward appearances, turning bright red upon seeing him at the breakfast table, accidentally dropping dishes or falling into her food whenever he looks at her or talks to her and being the butt of a few jokes made by Fred and George. As it is her first year at Hogwarts, she goes through Platform 9 and 3/4 with her mother and makes her way to Hogwarts, where the Sorting Hat placed her in Gryffindor. 

Ginny Weasley becomes a more prominent character in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. While shopping for their things in Diagon Alley and picking up books, Arthur Weasley and Lucius Malfoy get into a fistfight (unfortunately, removed from the film version). After the scuffle, Lucius tosses a used book back into Ginny’s bucket. Ginny is unaware that it contains a Horcrux: Tom Riddle’s diary. This diary becomes the source for Ginny’s complaints about her brothers teasing her, Harry Potter being too famous to notice her, and having to wear second-hand robes to school. 

During this book, Ginny Weasley roams the halls under the control of Tom Riddle, opening the Chamber of Secrets, petrifying Mrs. Norris the cat, Nick the ghost, Colin Creevey, Justin Finch-Fletchley, Hermione Granger, and Penelope Clearwater. It is also Ginny who kills the roosters–the deadly enemy of all the basilisks. When Ginny Weasley starts to recognize that something is not right, and chunks of her days and nights are missing, she attempts to destroy the diary by flushing it down the toilet. Unfortunately, she does so in the girls’ bathroom, where Moaning Myrtle lives. It is here that Harry and Ron find the diary. 

She’s also one of the many students who, when winter set in, had to take a Pepperup Potion. This potion worked instantly, but it left the drinker smoking out the ears for hours after taking it. Because Ginny Weasley had already been looking pale and had bright red hair, the steam from her ears made it look like her entire head was on fire. 

Around Valentine’s Day, the ridiculous Professor Gilderoy Lockhart arranges for dwarves with golden wings and harps to deliver messages throughout the school. One of them is a poem about Harry Potter which the dwarf delivers in the hallway, crowded with students, after tackling and sitting on Harry Potter. Draco points out that it was no doubt Ginny Weasley who sent it and that Harry did not like her poem. However, during this skirmish, the dwarf rips open Harry Potter’s bag and break his inkwell. Doing so reveals how the diary works and frightens Ginny, who fears the diary would reveal her wrongdoings to Harry. 

When Hermoine is petrified near the end of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Ginny takes up her squishy armchair by the Gryffindor fire and sits quietly with Harry and Ron, bearing the weight of her secret. 

At one point, Ginny tries to tell Harry Potter and Ron that she believes she is the one who led to the problems with the Basilisk. Still, she is interrupted by Percy, who casually thinks that she is about to disclose his relationship status. Later, Ginny breaks into Harry’s room and rifles through all of his things to find the diary and steal it. 

Only after Tom Riddle sucks the life out of her and forces her to write her goodbye on the wall and bring herself to the Chamber of Secrets do Harry and Ron make their way to her rescue with Lockhart. After battling Riddle and being healed by Fawkes, Harry resuscitates Ginny and brings her, Ron, and Lockhart back to Dumbledore’s office. Dumbledore saves the family the embarrassment of explaining precisely what happened by noting that Voldemort curiously took control of Ginny while in Albania. 

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Ginny is still awkward around Harry Potter but slightly less so. Harry attributes this to the fact that he saved her in the previous school year, and she is still embarrassed about the circumstances. At the start of the book, when everyone is on the Hogwarts Express, Ginny is separated from the rest of her family. She makes her way into the compartment where Professor Lupin, Harry, Hermione, and Ron were when the Dementors came on the board. After the Dementors were gone, Ginny was left shaking and crying.

Later, in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, when Harry Potter falls off his broom because of the Dementors that appeared during the Quidditch match, many people showed up at the hospital wing to cheer him up, including Ginny, who was blushing furiously and gave him a get-well card she made herself which sang continually until he closed it under a bowl of fruit. Unfortunately, this entire Valentine’s chapter is excluded from the film adaptation. 

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

That summer, Hermione Granger stayed at the Burrow in anticipation of the Quidditch World Cup, sharing a room with Ginny Weasley. It was then that Hermione advised Ginny to relax around Harry Potter. Until that point, all she could do was turn bright red and get nervous, rarely talking to him. Hermione suggested that Ginny try dating other boys this year until Harry starts to take notice and, if not, move on with her life.

She wore a green Shamrock hat during the Quidditch World Cup, supporting the Irish. When the Death Eaters appeared at the end of the game and caused a riot, Fred and George protected her and hit her in the forest.

When the Triwizard Tournament was announced and Harry Potter’s name was called, Ginny Weasley was one of the few people who stuck by his side and supported him, while many others at Hogwarts supported Cedric Diggory. She and Hermione Granger remained so close as friends that Ginny was the only person Hermione told about the Yule Ball and Viktor Krum.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, when Harry and Ron realized they didn’t have dates to the Yule Ball and absolutely needed them, Ron put the needs of his best friend first by telling him he could take Ginny and Ron would find someone else. Ginny pointed out that she couldn’t go with Harry because she was already going with someone. When the boys mocked the concept of anyone going to the Yule Ball with Neville Longbottom, Ginny yelled at them to stop and seemed completely distressed. She had finally gotten the chance; she wanted to go out with Harry Potter but since she was one year too young to attend the ball, going with a fourth-year like Neville Longbottom was her only opportunity to attend. During this Christmas party, she met Michael Corner and began to date him at the end of the year.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

After Harry Potter returned with Cedric’s body and stated that Voldemort was back, Ginny Weasley was one of many members who brought back the Order of the Phoenix. For the summer, her family was relocated to number 12 Grimmauld Place, where she shared a room with Hermione. She and Hermione became close with Nymphadora Tonks and Sirius Black during that time. Tonks would entertain Ginny and Hermione by changing her appearance at the dinner table.

Like all of the underage kids, Ginny was considered too young to attend official meetings, but that didn’t stop her from using antics similar to those of her older brothers Fred and George, like throwing dung bombs at the door to tell whether or not the door had eavesdropping-proof-barriers.

Ginny started relaxing around Harry Potter, now that she was dating someone else. She didn’t show any of the shyness or embarrassment that she had previously. When the moment came that Sirius Black decided to fill Harry Potter in on what was happening, there was a big fight between the younger children, Molly and Arthur. Molly didn’t think that Harry Potter had a right to know, but serious black insisted. Somali tried to shoo away Fred and George, but Arthur didn’t support her, informing her that 17 was legally old enough to be an adult in the magical world in there for those two boys to stay. So Molly tried to shoo away Ron and Hermione, who stood their ground, confident that Harry Potter would tell them everything afterward anyway, so they might as well be allowed to stay. The only one that Molly could officially get to leave the room was Ginny, who threw a tantrum and stomped and screamed her way back up the stairs–whom Hermione filled in on all the details later about what was happening with the Order of the Phoenix. 

When Harry Potter was acquitted of his charges, Ginny joined her brothers in singing and dancing throughout the house “he got off.” That same month when the group boarded the Hogwarts Express, Ginny introduced everyone to Luna Lovegood. Later in the year, when the students were prohibited from using or learning actual defense against the dark arts, Ginny brought her boyfriend to a meeting where they signed up to join Dumbledore’s Army. It was Ginny who came up with the name. During their regular group meetings, she demonstrated a great talent for using defensive magic and disarming spells and the reductor curse. Her brothers were quite jealous of her abilities, and Harry Potter was equally impressed.

After Umbridge had given her brothers and Harry Potter a lifelong ban, Ginny Weasley tried out for seeker for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Almost immediately after, news that Nagini had attacked her father caused the whole family to be sent to Number 12 Grimmauld Place for the Christmas holidays. The entire scene where all of the Weasley children go back to the headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix and visit their father in the hospital at St. Mungo’s only takes place in the books and is completely left out of the movies. This is where they all learned the truth about Neville Longbottom’s parents and where some of the adult members of the Order of the Phoenix on whom the group is eavesdropping posit that Harry Potter might be possessed by Voldemort, which is how he was able to tell Arthur Weasley had been attacked. After Harry Potter became sullen and secretive, Ginny called him out on his bad behavior. She said that out of everyone in the group, he should have come to her first because she’s the only one who truly knows what it’s like to be possessed by Voldemort. Therefore, if he thought he was possessed, he could talk to her and confirm whether or not his experiences were the same.

After the group returns to Hogwarts, Ginny demonstrates just how much her older brothers have rubbed off on her. Harry Potter is talking to her in the library about how he needs to speak with serious black, but he doesn’t know how he can do it. She remarks that when you live with Fred and George, you learn to find a solution to every problem, so she could help him find a way to talk to Sirius Black. 

In the books, Ginny Weasley plays her second game of Quidditch, capturing the golden snitch directly underneath Cho Chang’s nose and helping the Gryffindor team win the Quidditch cup. Ginny dumped her boyfriend in the aftermath because he was a bad loser.

The Battle of the Department of Mysteries

After Harry Potter has a vision of Sirius Black being tortured in the Department of Mysteries, Ginny Weasley and Luna help Harry, Ron, and Hermione break into Umbridge’s office so that they can figure out whether or not serious black was legitimately at the ministry of magic. Ginny, Luna, Neville, Ron, Hermione, and Harry all set off to rescue Sirius Black. Death Eaters trapped them, and Bellatrix Lestrange threatened to torture Ginny to get Harry Potter to talk. All six members started fighting throughout the multiple rooms, and Ginny’s Ankle was broken. The inquisitorial squad captured the group but managed to break free using skills like the bat bogey hex. She recovered thanks to Madam Pomfrey and helped comfort Harry Potter after losing his Godfather.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


That summer Ginny and her family returned to their home, where they had a new guest in the form of Fleur Delacour, her older brother Bill’s fiance. It became a running joke with the women in the house, including her mother and Hermione, to refer to Fleur as “phlegm” and mock her behind her back.

She spent the summer holidays practicing Quidditch and bought a new pygmy puff from Fred and George’s new shop in Diagon Alley, Weasleys Wizard Wheezes.

Onboard the Hogwarts Express, she got so annoyed by Zacharias Smith asking what happened the previous year at the department of mysteries that she cursed him using her bat bogey hex. Doing so in front of the new Professor Slughorn, she was certain to get detention but instead got invited to join his special Slug Club of students he thought were particularly unique.

Harry Potter was named quidditch captain, and she tried out for the position of chaser instead of seeker. After practice, Harry Potter and Ron caught her kissing her new boyfriend Dean in the portrait hole tunnel. This resulted in a particularly harsh fight between Ron and his sister, where Ginny mocked her brother Ron for the way he always lingered with his face out, hoping that Fleur would kiss him and how pathetic it was. She also brought up the fact that he was jealous because he had never really kissed anyone, and that’s why he was insinuating that she got around and that what she was doing by snogging her boyfriend was somehow wrong.

Throughout this book, Harry Potter experiences what is beautifully described as a tiny monster inside of him at the sight of Ginny Weasley with any other boy.

During the following quidditch match, Zacharias Smith was the commentator. During that time, he made some disparaging remarks about the team. In response, Ginny not only scored several goals but crashed into the commentary box knocking him over, after which she apologized to Professor McGonagall and said that she couldn’t hit the brakes even though she tried.

She and Ron continued their feud through Christmas when Ginny Weasley attended Slughorn’s Christmas party with her boyfriend, Dean Thomas. But after the Christmas holidays, she was less than enthusiastic about meeting up with Dean. After Ron accidentally consumed the chocolates. Love potions meant for Harry Potter, his sister, visited him daily in the hospital, and they resolved their feud. 

When Harry Potter used his Felix Felicis potion, he knocked Ginny Weasley as she was climbing through the portrait hole one evening. Ginny turned on her boyfriend, Dean Thomas, and criticized him for always trying to push her through the porthole, which caused the two of them to break up shortly after that. Now a free woman, after winning the Quidditch cup, she made her way toward Harry Potter and kissed him fiercely in front of the entire common room, starting a new relationship, one that would last.

Battle of the Astronomy Tower

When Draco Malfoy let Death Eaters into Hogwarts, Ginny joined other members of Dumbledore’s Army, taking the extra luck potion amongst them and fighting the Death Eaters. She dueled Amycus Carrow and came out unscathed thanks to the luck potion. She explains that every time a Death Eater threw a curse at them, it just barely missed them; they had just enough luck to survive. At the end of the book, following Dumbledore’s funeral, Harry Potter ends their relationship, knowing that he has to start on his journey to find Horcruxes.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


On Harry Potter’s 17th birthday, before he, Ron, and Hermione left on their search for Horcruxes, Ginny kissed him as his birthday present. When the Delacour family arrived, and a now slightly older Gabrielle batted her eyelashes at Harry, forever grateful that he had once saved her, Ginny coughed loudly to display her displeasure. During the reception, when Viktor Krum asked if she was single, Harry Potter lied and said that she was dating a large man who was very jealous. When she returned to school, Ginny joined forces with Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood to restart Dumbledore’s Army and slowly undermine Snape’s new regime. They would sneak out at night and graffiti on the walls of the corridors that they were still recruiting, and they tried to steal the Gryffindor Sword for Harry Potter. After Luna was abducted during the Christmas holidays, she and Neville word the two leaders remaining. Once Neville pushed things too far, and the Death Eaters tried to kidnap his grandmother, Ginny was the de facto leader of Dumbledore’s Army.

Battle of Hogwarts

During the final battle of Hogwarts, Ginny was once again at the center of a debate with her mother about whether or not she was old enough to participate in the fight. Molly won that argument, and her daughter was forced to remain in the room of requirement for safety against her will. However, when Harry Potter needed the room of requirement to convert back into the place where it hid lost items so that he could get the diadem of Ravenclaw, Ginny happily left and joined the fight along with her family.

Later she was seen fighting alongside Nymphadora Tonks. When there was a pause in the fighting, she was heartbroken by the death of Fred and helped recover the wounded outside. Harry Potter walked by her as she did this, wearing his invisibility cloak on his way to see Voldemort and die. She happened to be comforting a small girl and seemed to notice his presence, turning around and looking for someone even though she couldn’t see him. When Voldemort brought back what was supposedly Harry Potter’s dead body, Ginny screamed in anguish. Still, once the battle restarted, she, Luna, and Hermione dueled with Bellatrix Lestrange until Molly got there and eventually killed Bellatrix.

Ginny Weasley After Hogwarts Years


Nineteen years after the battle, she and her husband escorted their children James and Albus for their first year at Hogwarts. Following her time at Hogwarts, Ginny Weasley became a professional quidditch player for the Holyhead Harpies, all the while rekindling her romance with Harry Potter. Eventually, she retired from her position to raise a family, after which she served as a senior quidditch correspondent for the daily prophet.,, 

Ginny Weasley Family

Ginny Weasley later married Harry Potter. Together they had multiple children, including James, Albus, and Lily.

Ginny Weasley Magical Abilities and Special Skills

Ginny Weasley is famous for her bat bogey curse, a curse that transforms bogeys into bats that come flying out of the victim’s nose. She performed it so well, in fact, that it earned her a place in the “Slug Club” hosted by Professor Slughorn. 

She is well trained in defense against the dark arts as a committed member of Dumbledore’s Army. She learned to cast many offensive and defensive spells, all of which helped her fight Death Eaters during multiple battles.

The card she made for Harry Potter as a get-well present was a proficient demonstration of charm work as she could charm the card to sing to him. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when Neville Longbottom’s plant explodes stink sap all over the group, she further demonstrates her charms ability by using the scouring charm to clean everyone up. 

She is an accomplished flyer and quidditch player able to defeat Cho Chang and take over Harry Potter’s role as the Gryffindor Seeker. She was able to take those skills and apply them professionally when she joined the Holyhead Harpies as a professional quidditch player. She was so good that she helped Gryffindor win the Quidditch Cup in 1996 and 1997.

She showed herself to be resilient and use powerful curses and jinxes like the reductor curse. She regularly demonstrates her ability to dodge spells in combat because she’s small and fast. She was an effective co-leader of Dumbledore’s Army alongside Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood when the other characters had to leave Hogwarts. 

Ginny Weasley’s Popular Possessions

For a short time, Ginny Weasley owned Tom Riddle’s Diary. Ginny Weasley purchased a pygmy puff from her brother’s shop in 1996. This cute creature remains with her presumably through the rest of her time at Hogwarts. She also possesses a coin from Dumbledore’s Army. These coins were changed by Hermione to always indicate the time and date of the next meeting whenever Harry Potter changed his, an idea that came to her because of the left forearm tattoos used by Death Eaters.

Ginny Weasley is also known to have a broomstick, multiple Weasley jumpers that she gets for Christmas, you’ll ball robes that she wore when she attended the Yule Ball with Neville Longbottom, dress robes that she wore to the Slug Club Christmas party, and a gold bridesmaid dress that she wore to Bill and Fleur’s wedding.

Ginny Weasley Wand

Ginny Weasley Wand

Ginny Weasley’s wand is made from yew. She bought it at Ollivanders in 1992 before starting her education at Hogwarts. It is not known how long it is or what material is used for the core.

Ginny Weasley Trivial and Fun Facts

The second book says that Ginny has been looking forward to attending Hogwarts ever since her older brother Bill went to Hogwarts. She was distraught at the prospect of being kicked out during her first year. However, when her older brother Bill went to Hogwarts, it was 1982, and she was only one year old, so it’s unlikely that she would have a memory of her brother going to Hogwarts, let alone a burning desire to go herself.

She is one of only 14 characters who appear in all 8 of the film adaptations.

Ginny’s Patronus in the books is never described, but in the films, it is shown as a horse.

In the book  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the Gryffindor Quidditch team won the Quidditch cup. Harry Potter came into the room where everyone was celebrating, and Ginny Weasley headed straight for him with a fierce determination in her eyes and kissed him. They maintained their steady relationship for the rest of the year, but at Dumbledore’s funeral, Harry breaks up with her knowing that he has to cut all ties for her protection. In the film adaptation, they are hiding the advanced potion-making book in the room of requirement. Ginny Weasley tells Harry to close his eyes while she hides the book so that other students, including Harry, won’t be able to find it again and kisses him. They don’t break up in the film, so it’s implied that they still have a relationship.

In the book version of  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ginny gives Harry Potter a kiss in her bedroom as his birthday present, something Ron interrupts. While not in the books, it provides equally funny comic relief. After Ron gives Harry a stern talking-to about messing around with his sister, they leave the matter to rest. In the film adaptation, Ginny asks Harry to zip up the back of her dress, and the two of them kiss, all while George Weasley sneaks into the background, positions himself appropriately, and clears his throat to break up the happy couple.

In the final part of the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Harry starts to tell Ginny that he loves her during the final battle, and she cuts them off, telling him that she knows, and they both continue the fight only to be shown years later loading their children onto the Hogwarts Express. This confession of love scene never happened in the books.

“I never really gave up on you. Not really. I always hoped….

And she thought you might take a bit more notice if I was a bit more — myself.”

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, when Ginny and Molly are discussing Fleur:
