Gerbold Octavius Ollivander was a pure-blood wizard, It is said that his family has a long tradition of wand-making, which is also passed to his son, Gervaise Ollivander, and consequentially, grand-son Garrick Ollivander.

Gerbold Octavius Ollivander is indeed in Hogwarts Legacy, and players worldwide are wondering how old he is. Prima Games team digs deep into the depths of the internet in search of an answer to this question and we are delivering our findings below.

When was Gerbold Octavius Ollivander born?

The information about the Ollivander family is generally pretty scarce, but it is approximated that Gerbold Octavius Ollivander was born around the year 1800, give or take. We’ve turned every stone on the internet and couldn’t pinpoint the exact year of birth of Gerbold Octavius Ollivander.

In Which Year is Hogwarts Legacy Taking Place?

Hogwarts Legacy is taking place in the 1890s, which we’re sure of.

This leads us to believe that Gerbold Octavius Ollivander is, at the time of Hogwarts Legacy, approximately 90 years old.
We need to leave some margin for error of course, which we’ll arbitrarily set to 5-10 years in any direction, so basically, because both his year of birth and year of Hogwarts Legacy storyline are not precisely set in stone, Gerbold Octavius Ollivander could be anywhere between 80 and 100 years of age. In the absence of more precise information, that’s what we are sadly forced to go with. We’d like to update this as soon as there’s some official clarification on the matter, but given the circumstances, we are forced to believe that this won’t happen.

Garrick Ollivander is a half-blood wizard, seen in a lot of Harry Potter books (and movies alike). Garrick remembers every wand he made and sold and after a lot of testing and honing of his wand-crafting skills, he has decided to stick with dragon heartstring, unicorn hair, and phoenix feather as prime core materials for his creations.

Garrick Ollivander’s Birthday is September 25th, based on all available information. However, his birth year remains a mystery, with various sources throwing their estimates left and right. Given some activities Garrick Ollivander had in the story, a rough estimate is that he was born no later than 1910.
