Reverte[1] was the incantation of a charm that could return or revert objects to their original positions or states, which might cause the targeted objects to move in reverse.

History

In 1927, Leta Lestrange used this spell on the record towers in the Records Room at the French Ministry of Magic Headquarters, in an attempt to flee from pursuing Matagots. This sent all the record towers - previously summoned by Lestrange - flying backwards and spinning back into their original positions in the ground.[1]

Etymology

Reverte is derived from Latin for "you shall return", being a second-person imperative form (singular, present, active) of the verb reverto ("I return, or turn back").[2]
