In the fictional universe of Harry Potter created by J.K. Rowling, the character Neville Longbottom is often discussed in relation to the prophecy of the “Chosen One.” According to the prophecy, the Chosen One would have the power to defeat the dark wizard Lord Voldemort. The prophecy initially mentioned that the Chosen One would be born at the end of July, to parents who had defied Voldemort three times.
Both Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom fit the initial criteria of the prophecy, as they were born at the end of July and their parents had encountered Voldemort. The interpretation of the prophecy led to a series of events that led to Voldemort targeting Harry Potter, believing him to be the Chosen One.
Throughout the series, Harry Potter’s journey is centered around his role as the Chosen One, and he ultimately confronts and defeats Voldemort. While Neville Longbottom plays a significant role in the story and demonstrates bravery and determination, it is Harry who fulfills the role of the Chosen One as depicted in the books.
Therefore, within the context of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter is considered the Chosen One rather than Neville Longbottom.
