Harry Potter: 8 Facts You Might Not Know About Lord Voldemort

Think you know everything there is to know about the great Lord Voldemort? We’re here to teach you a thing or two!

Tom Riddle aka. Lord Voldemort might be one of the greatest villains in cinematic and literature history, but there’s still a LOT that even the most devoted Potterheads don’t know about the iconic Dark Wizard! For our latest post on The Blog That Must Not Be Named, we’re taking an in-depth look at the beloved Harry Potter “baddie” and sharing 8 facts that even the biggest Potterheads might not know!

Check out the list below:


He’s incapable of feeling love because his mother used a love potion to seduce his father.


He wanted to teach Defence Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts but was denied by Professor Dumbledore. He later cursed the position.



Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter are both descendants of the Peverell brothers (original owners of the Deathly Hallows), meaning the two are distantly related.


Despite hating muggle born or half-blood witches and wizards, Voldemort was actually a half-blood wizard.



After leaving Hogwarts, Voldemort found a job selling goods at Borgin and Burkes. Not where you’d expect the greatest Dark Wizard of all-time to work?


The T in his name is supposed to be silent, meaning we’ve been saying his damn name wrong for over twenty years! Oh well, our way sounds cooler!



He might have looked much younger, but Lord Voldemort was actually 71-years-old when he was finally defeated by Harry Potter.


Voldemort created his first Horcrux while he was still at Hogwarts, meaning he was just a teenager when he murdered for the first time!
