I have always wondered this, and as today is the anniversary of the battle of Hogwarts, I think I will ask this:

Who killed Tonks and Lupin in the battle of Hogwarts?

1 Answer 1


Antonin Dolohov and Bellatrix Lestrange

Rowling answered this in a 2007 livechat on Bloomsbury.com:

J.K. Rowling: Remus was killed by Dolohov and Tonks by Bellatrix.

    @Randal'Thor I'd be interested to see a statistical breakdown of who killed who; I feel like Bella tends to come up a lot more often than anyone else in these sorts of questions May 2, 2016 at 14:09

    So, if Harry, Heromine and Ron had killed Dolohov in the diner instead of stunned/erased his memory...Remus would be alive!! Silly children and their sentiment on life.

    @Mayshar That's exactly the type of thinking a Slytherin would have!
