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. – Mohammed Alhanafi Jan 3 '18 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? – Simon Aspinall Jan 3 '18 at 11:34
  • Some says that's harry doesn't die, just the Horcrux destroyed and harry have some kind of near-death experience. – Mohammed Alhanafi Jan 3 '18 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 – Simon Aspinall Jan 3 '18 at 11:37
  • Could someone be described as "defeated" if they never defended themselves? – Adrian Wragg Jan 3 '18 at 11:52
