How old was Tom Riddle when he made each of his Horcruxes, and who did he kill to create each? I know about Myrtle, The Riddle family, Hepzibah, and Harry's parents, but who were the others?

    As such, perhaps it is worth editing this to ask only about Voldemort’s age.

    @Valorum Found a better dupe here. The one answer mentions all the dates, Voldemort's age, and who he killed.

1 Answer 1


Full disclosure, I am taking my answer from the Harry Potter wiki entry on Horcruxes

Voldemort was born on the 31st of December, 1926.

  1. The Diary. Made from the murder of Moaning Myrtle. Date created: 13 June 1943 or later. Lord Voldemort's age: 16 (or 17, going from the 'later' in the date given)

  2. The ring. Made from the murder of Tom Riddle Senior. Date created: August 1943. Lord Voldemort's age: 16

  3. Salazar Slytherin's Locket. Made from the murder of a Muggle tramp. Date created: 1946 or later, but before 1979. Lord Voldemort's age: between the ages of 20 to 53.

  4. Helga Hufflepuff's Cup. Made from the murder of Hepzibah Smith (who claimed to be descended from Helga Hufflepuff). Date created: 1946 or later. Lord Voldemort's age: 20.

  5. Rowena Ravenclaw's Diadem. Made from the murder of an Albanian peasant. Date created: 1946 or later. Lord Voldemort's age: 20.

  6. Nagini. Made from the murder of Bertha Jorkins. Date created: Summer of 1994. Lord Voldemort's age: 68

Edit: Regarding Pseudo-Horcruxes Harry and Professor Quirrell. These Pseudo-Horcruxes were not created intentionally using the Horcrux-making spell for the purpose of obtaining immortality, as is also pointed out in this question on SciFi&Fi.

  1. Pseudo-Horcrux Quirrell was created between 1990-1991. Lord Voldemort's age: 64 - 65.

  2. Pseudo-Horcrux Harry was created on the 31st of October, 1981. Lord Voldemort's age: 55
