Charles "Charlie" Weasley was a character in the Harry Potter books.

Charlie was the second of seven children in the Weasley family. He was a wizard who worked in Romania looking after dragons. He joined the Order of the Phoenix in the Second Wizarding War. He never married and had any children.


Early life

When Charlie attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he befriended Rubeus Hagrid. He was fond of Charlie because he was good with animals.[3] He took Care of Magical Creatures.[4]

He was very good at Quidditch and he was the Seeker and Captain of the House team. He helped them win the Inter-House tournament at least once.[3] He was said to be that good at the sport that he should have had a professional career and joined the England team.[5]

Philosopher's Stone

In June 1991, he graudated Hogwarts. By September, Charlie began working in a sanctuary in Romania to study and look after dragons.[6] Hagrid asked Charlie's brother Ron how he was doing.[7] He purchased a new wand by then too, and gave the old wand to Ron.[6] Mr and Mrs Weasley spent the holidays with Charlie in December in Romania.[8]

In around April 1992, Ron sent Charlie a letter telling him about Rubeus Hagrid's baby dragon named Norbert. He asked Charlie whether he could fly to Hogwarts in order to collect it, and take it to the sanctuary in Romania before Hagrid was caught and had the dragon taken away. Charlie agreed to send friends to pick Norbert up when they were on their way to Romania. He was worried they could get caught and they'd get in trouble, so he wanted Ron to meet him at the highest tower at midnight. Ron agreed and Norbert was sent to Charlie.[9]
