Podcast Question of the Week – Episode 5

On the latest episode of our new Harry Potter podcast I asked all of you cool listeners out there to tell me about magical inheritance.

Consider the scene of Christmas morning when Harry received the Invisibility Cloak one of his first and most ancient gifts. We know (now) that the mystery gift-giver was none other than Albus Dumbledore.

But did Dumbledore have to give the cloak back to Harry as part of some magical rule? Did James leave it for Harry in his will? If so, how exactly does magical inheritance work, and what indeed do you need to do in the eyes of Wizard Law to possess something to hand down in the first place?

If you have an answer to this question, feel free to comment directly below. Some answers will be read aloud and discussed on episode five of Alohomora!
