J.K. Rowling just dropped a ‘Harry Potter’ bombshell and our muggle minds are blown

Much to the excitement of obsessed Harry Potter fans across the globe, J.K. Rowling often reveals tidbits of secret wizarding information on the site Pottermore. The last post Rowling shared made us aware of disturbing wizard “restroom” habits. We’re honestly still recovering from the knowledge that Harry and the gang probably *went* wherever they stood and vanished their excrements with a spell. Ew.

However, Rowling’s most recent bombshell is infinitely more shocking—though much less disgusting. Are you ready for this mere muggles?? There are actually two Harry Potters. Yes, TWO and our minds are blown.

Look at that face, she knows how crazy these magical secrets make us. Though, I am grateful that the series never really has to come to an end because we can live vicariously through Rowling’s spontaneous reveals.

The author’s latest post revealed that there are TWO Harry Potters in the wizarding universe…TWO!

As in double the scar, double the “Chosen One”, and double the adventures. Okay, not exactly but there was another wizard named Harry Potter.

There’s the bespectacled Harry that we all know and love with that crazy lightning scar.

OMG, he was so young in that first film.

AND there was another Harry Potter who lived in the early 1900s.

According to Rowling, “Henry Potter (Harry to his intimates) was a direct descendant of Hardwin and Iolanthe, and served on the Wizengamot from 1913 – 1921.”

Apparently, he was also a bit of a rebel (much like his descendent).

“Henry 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. His outspokenness on the behalf of the Muggle community was also a strong contributing factor in the family’s exclusion from the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight’,” Rowling added.

Sounds like a Potter to me.

Henry’s son Fleamont (yes that was his real name) married Euphemia and had a little boy named James Potter—meaning Henry was our Harry’s great grandfather. Follow me?

“Fleamont and Euphemia lived long enough to see James marry a Muggle-born girl called Lily Evans, but not to meet their grandson, Harry. Dragon pox carried them off within days of each other, due to their advanced age, and James Potter then inherited Ignotus Peverell’s Invisibility Cloak.”

If only we could meet past Harry and introduce him to current Harry. Also, does this mean there could be two Ron Weasley’s!?
