In the Deathly Hallows Harry and Voldemort are fighting in the forest. Voldemort defeats and kills Harry, why didn't Voldemort become the true owner of the Elder Wand and therefore win their final battle?

  • Because harry is the true owner of it, can not kill one with his wand. Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 11:25
  • If Harry cannot be killed with the wand whilst he is the owner, how did he die and the Horcrux be destroyed? Shouldn't the wand have backfired like it did during their final battle? Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 11:34
  • Some says that's harry doesn't die, just the Horcrux destroyed and harry have some kind of near-death experience. Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 11:36
  • A Horcrux that has a living container can only be destroyed with their death therefore Harry must have died in order to destroy the Horcrux Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 11:37
  • Could someone be described as "defeated" if they never defended themselves? Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 11:52
