"I could pick him up at the age of 6 and put him on top of the dresser. But enough about me...what about you?"
Rubeus Hagrid discussing his father to Olympe Maxime[src]

Mr Hagrid (died c. 1941) was a wizard who was Rubeus Hagrid's father, and the first husband of Fridwulfa. He was short, not only in comparison to his giantess wife and half-giant son, but by human standards as well.



In or before the early twentieth century, he met Fridwulfa, a giantess. Despite their overwhelming size difference, they became a couple and married. Around 1928, they had a half-giant child, named Rubeus.


Fridwulfa left Mr Hagrid three years after their son's birth. He was heartbroken.[1]

Rubeus and his father

After Fridwulfa left him, Mr Hagrid had to take care of his young son alone. In 1940, his son started his magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


Mr Hagrid died around 1941, when Rubeus was in his second year thus unaware of his son's expulsion from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry the next year.[2]
