The Daily Harry Potter

The pivotal moment in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the ultimate confrontation between Harry and Voldemort. The heroes and Death Eaters engaged in combat in what is renowned as the Battle of Hogwarts, which decided the future of the Wizarding World. Although the movie depicted this Battle well, the novel contains much more information. In addition, J.K. Rowling has also added many further details about the events leading up to and following the Battle of Hogwarts, giving fans loads more answers.

Let’s look at some of the most intriguing information concerning the Battle of Hogwarts on its 25th Anniversary.

The Battle resulted in the deaths of almost fifty people

The number of people who died in the Battle of Hogwarts is not explicit in the film, but the novel offers additional information. In addition to Colin Creevey, Tonks, Lupin, and Fred Weasley, there were more than fifty other people whose deaths were confirmed. The list of Death Eater fatalities is not included in what has come to be called the Fallen Fifty.

Harry believed that torturing Amycus Carrow was justified

Harry erred when he tormented Death Eater Amycus Carrow with the Cruciatus curse after Carrow spit on Professor McGonagall just before the Battle of Hogwarts started. Harry’s malicious act was an isolated incident, but J.K. Rowling claimed he had no regrets.

From Hogsmeade, Professor Kettleburn took part in the Battle of Hogwarts

Before Harry learned about Care of Magical Creatures, Professor Kettleburn, who taught the course, retired. After retiring, he relocated to Hogsmeade and had a minor role in the Battle of Hogwarts. Professor Kettleburn flung his stock of Flobberworms at the Death Eaters that passed his house to divert them, as was revealed in Chapter Four; Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship, and Dangerous Hobbies.

The Centaurs arrived just in time to assist the heroes in the Battle

In the series, the centaurs were overtly hostile to people and declined to assist when the Battle of Hogwarts started. They did, however, take action when Hagrid confronted them for their inaction when he believed Harry had died. The centaurs came just in time to fight the Death Eaters, although it was not depicted in the film, giving Harry the chance to reveal that he was still alive. The Resurrection Stone that Harry had left in the forest was also buried permanently due to the centaurs charging into Battle.

Narcissa’s Forest Lie Led To The Malfoys Avoiding Justice

Given their assistance to the Death Eaters before Voldemort’s defeat, the Malfoys would have been simple prisoners for Azkaban. However, they all escape from jail thanks to Narcissa’s deception of Voldemort about Harry’s survival in the forest. Since this lie ultimately helped Harry defeat Voldemort, it let the family off the hook.

Well, we hope you’d have liked it after reading these fantastic facts on its 25th Anniversary!
