Hogwart's School for Witchcraft and Wizardry
Ronald Bilius “Ron” Weasley (b. 1 March, 1980) was a pure-blood wizard and the sixth son of Molly and Arthur Weasley. He was also the younger brother of Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred and George, and the elder brother of Ginny.
Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 and was sorted into Gryffindor house. He soon became best friends with fellow student Harry Potter and later Hermione Granger. Together, they faced many challenges during their adolescence, including keeping the Philosopher’s Stone from Quirinus Quirrell, saving Ron’s sister from the Chamber of Secrets, forming Dumbledore’s Army, and fighting in numerous battles of the Second Wizarding War, including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, and the Battle over Little Whinging. Ron also became a Gryffindor Prefect and a Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team during his 5th year at Hogwarts. He skipped his last year of school in order to accompany Harry and Hermione on a quest to destroy the Horcruxes of Lord Voldemort and fought in the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, in which he lost his brother, Fred, a loss which devastated him.
After the war, Ron, along with Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom, joined the Aurors at the invitation of Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt, in order to track down Death Eaters who escaped capture. Eventually, he went to work at Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes with his brother George. He and Hermione eventually married and had two children: A daughter named Rose and a son named Hugo Weasley. Ron was also the godfather to James Sirius Potter, his sister Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter’s eldest child.
Ronald Bilius Weasley was the sixth of seven children born to Arthur and Molly Weasley (née Prewett), and got his middle name from his uncle. He was born at the height of the First Wizarding War. In the fighting his maternal uncles Fabian and Gideon Prewett, both members of the Order of the Phoenix, were killed fighting Death Eaters. While he was still a toddler, the wizarding world became peaceful again, for a time, after Lord Voldemort’s first defeat on 31 October, 1981.
Ron and his five older brothers – Bill, Charlie, Percy, and Fred and George — as well as his younger sister, Ginny, grew up in the Burrow in Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon. The Weasley family was not wealthy at all, compared to other wizarding families, and many other pure-blood families, particularly the Malfoys, disdained them for their “blood traitor” beliefs and lack of wealth, which they tried their best to make up for with their love, The Weasley siblings were fond of teasing and playing pranks on each other, and Ron was a particular target for Fred and George. They once transfigured his teddy bear into a giant spider, sparking his arachnophobia and nearly got him to make an Unbreakable Vow on another occasion, which finally made their father truly furious, and they once got him to eat an Acid Pop which burnt a hole through his tongue.
Ron had a fairly happy childhood, which Harry, who had been brought up by his spiteful relatives the Dursleys, envied.
Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 at the customary age of eleven. He was sorted into Gryffindor House, like every other member of his family. On his first trip on the Hogwarts Express, Ron met and became fast friends with Harry Potter, the famous Boy Who Lived. Harry showed Ron great generosity by purchasing a quantity of snacks from the Hogwarts Express food trolley to share with Ron, and that simple act set in motion a lifelong friendship. Examples of this included: Harry standing up for Ron against bigot bully Draco Malfoy, reassuring Harry that it was not his fault that Severus Snape, the Potions Master, gave him a hard time; agreeing to act as his second during what would be a midnight duel but was in actuality a dirty trick by Draco to get Harry and Ron in trouble.
Ron and Harry also first met Hermione Granger on the train but did not particularly like her…
