Mrs. Molly Weasley (née Prewett) is one of the supporting characters in the Harry Potter franchise, written by JK Rowling.


Mrs. Weasley was born Molly Prewett and had two brothers, Gideon and Fabian. She was born October 30, in either 1949 or 1950, attending Hogwarts from 1961-1968. Molly and Arthur eloped together and had seven children: William, Charles, Percy, Fred, George, Ronald, and Ginevra.


Molly is a fierce, brave woman who has a strong love for both her friends and family. In The Order of the Phoenix, Molly's boggart was revealed to be the corpses of her children and Harry, with a fear of losing her children. She went up against Bellatrix Lestrange for going after her daughter and later killed her for it. Molly was also a mother figure to Harry, since he grew up without a maternal figure. She gave him the motherly love that his aunt, Petunia had deprived him of. Her sons, Fred and George, were mostly afraid of her. This was shown when Hermione threatened to tell their mother about Fred and George's behavior, causing them to back down.

Though Molly was proud of her children's accomplishments, she tended to get frustrated with her twin sons' antics. Molly also sent a Howler to Ron for taking out the flying car out and causing his father to face an inquiry at work. She also wanted what was best for her children and Harry. Molly was initially one to disapprove of her son Bill's choice of Fleur Delacour. However, when Bill was scarred, Fleur pronounced that she didn't care what he looked like. This helped Molly accept Fleur as a future daughter-in-law.

Molly also had a good rapport with Ron's wife, Hermione, seeing her as a daughter as well. However, she had assumed that Hermione had broken Harry's heart until Harry cleared it up that they were never dating in the first place.

Physical Appearance

Molly was a woman in her forties, with bright brown eyes, red hair, and fair skin. She was about 5'3.5" tall. She was also described as slightly plump and a kindly looking woman. Harry was shocked to see that she could so easily look "like a sabre-tooth tiger" when she was angry with her sons.
