Is Lily Potter really muggle born?
Here's some speculations about wether Harry's mother Lily Potter realy
is muggle born
|| I see in multiple areas
where you think that Lily Potter is Muggle-born. Is there anywhere
in the books that actually says that? I realize in book 2 Harry says
she is muggle born to Tom Riddle, but of course he would think she
is muggle born I ask that because I suspect that Lily and Petunia's
parents were magical people. I keep thinking that maybe for some reason,
Lily's parents hid their magical background from their kids. In Book
1 when Hagrid is in the house on the rock in the sea, Petunia says
that her parents were so proud to have a witch in the family.
I see no reason why muggles would be so proud about having a witch
in the family. I suspect many muggles would react more like the Dursley's
if they found out they had a witch in the family. I think the reason
why Petunia is so bitter towards Harry, Lily and the magical world
in general is because her parents knew for a long time that Lily was
a witch, but Petunia turned out to be a squib and therefore treated
Lily differently (and probably better) than her sister Petunia.
In my theory I am not sure of why Lily's and Petunia's parents would
hide their magical abilities. The only thing I can think of would
depend on when Voldemort came to start his terror. If Petunia and
Lily were born after Voldemort came to power, then maybe Lily and
Petunia's parents hid their magical abilities to protect their children
