Time of birth or life?
I just wondered if there is any canon informatiom on when he lived? I couldn't help but wonder if he was the father of Augusta Longbottom.
- His wife Callidora was born in 1915, so he was most likely in Augusta's generation. Possibly a brother or cousin, but to say either way would be speculation. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 06:22, December 31, 2013 (UTC)
- I always thought Augusta was on McGonagall's age? Perhaps Harfang was Augusta's housband? User:Simen Johannes Fagerli
- Can't be her husband, he's Callidora Longbototm (nee Black)'s husband ... unless he had a secret mistress the entire wizarding world knew about. Another thought, though: what if she married the unnamed son of Harfang Longbottom? I personally find it hard to believe that Augusta would be in her forties or fifties when she had Frank, who if I recall correctly was born in the sixties? But if she married this unnamed son, she'd be in twenties or thirties depending (or possibly late teens). --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 14:55, December 31, 2013 (UTC)
Having used an image of Callidora to get Harfang's name to add to his page as an image, I considered something. Is his name actually Hareang, not Harfang? I drew over the name in paint and it seems to be. I included a comparison of the image and my writing over it, to show: . You may have to click on the image to see my writing as it's a bit too small here...
- The newest family tree from Pottermore has his name as Harfang - as does JKR's hand written tree (which is highest canon of course). The film prop appears to have a typo? --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:27, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
As far as I know, the image of her handwritten tree on this wiki comes from Harry Potter Film Wizardry (I don't own it myself.), and it gives the name as Harfang.--Rodolphus (talk) 16:55, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
- It's Harfang. Rowling's handwritten family tree trumps anything else in terms of canon, and lists him as such (the case of Iola Black is not an apt comparison: her name had been mistranscribed not by us, but by the HP Lexicon when the document went for auction in 2006, which was before there were actual decent-resolution photographs of the handwritten tree anywhere out there). -- 19:26, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
