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


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]


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]
