Mr Ollivander was the son of Garrick Ollivander and his wife. He had a sister who, by 2011, had died.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • It is possible that Mr Ollivander took over from his father as the owner of Ollivanders.
  • This individual was only mentioned on the original version of the "Mr Ollivander" article on the old Pottermore.[2]


Notes and references

  1. His paternal grandmother was Muggle-born, so he is either a half-blood wizard or a Squib, if born with no magical abilities.
