叔父のアルファードが、私にかなりの金貨を残してくれていた――この叔父も、ここから抹消されているがね。たぶんそれが原因で――まあ、とにかく、それ以来自分独りでやってきた。 シリウス・ブラックの語るアルファード・ブラック





ブラック家の伝統である星や星座の名前を子供に名付けるという伝統に従い、アルファード・ブラックも星の名前から付けられている。アルファードは、りゅう座の中で最も明るい星のなまえで、ヘビの心臓部にある。アラビア語でアルファード( فرد|الفرد)は、孤独なものという意味を持つ。



  1. 1.0 1.1 The Black family tree does not show Alphard's date of birth, but it does show that he was born sometime after his sister Walburga, in 1925, and before his brother Cygnus, in 1938.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Harry Potter Glossary at the: exact quote: Sirius Black's uncle who died when Sirius was seventeen, leaving him 'a decent bit of gold. Along with the former link, in the F.A.Q. section of J.K. Rowling's Official Site, she stated that Sirius was "around twenty-two" when he was imprisoned in Azkaban. Given that he was imprisoned shortly after 31 October 1981 and attended Hogwarts from 1971 to 1978, Sirius would have been born between 1 September 1959 and 1 November 1959. This means that Alphard, who gave Sirius gold when he was 17, died between his 17th birthday, in late 1976, and his 18th birthday, in late 1977

  4. In 『ハリー・ポッターと謎のプリンス』第4章, Horace Slughorn states: "The whole Black family had been in my house, but Sirius ended up in Gryffindor!" This implies that all Blacks except Sirius were sorted into Slytherin while Slughorn was teaching at Hogwarts. As revealed in, Chapter 3 (Horace Slughorn), Slughorn had "completed half a century of service" at the time of his retirement in 1981, meaning he started teaching there circa 1931. Alphard, born sometime between 1925 and 1938, would have attended Hogwarts starting in the late 1930s or 1940s, and thus would have been a student of Slughorn. Sirius Black also states "My whole family have been in Slytherin" and in Chapter 23 of Deathly Hallows, confirming that at least those Blacks closely related to Sirius were in Slytherin.
