Apart from the recipe for skiving snackboxes and the secret to their love potions, you wouldn't think there's much left to learn about Fred and George Weasley. But as always, Harry Potter fan theories continue to blow minds, and this latest one about the twins is particularly interesting.

While JK Rowling is busy filling fans in on the history of the American wizarding world, HP fans reckon they've uncovered something interesting themselves about the history of the Weasley family, and it's all to do with a connection to actual ROYALTY.

If you're SUPER observant when it comes to Harry Potter trivia, you might have noticed in the past that all of the Weasley characters share their names with British royalty. Ooh, interesting.

There's Arthur, Bill (William), Ginevra (a form of Guinevere), Percival, Ron (the name of Arthur's spear), Fred (Frederik) and George - so now you know.

With that tres interesting little snippet in mind, one oh so historically wise Harry Potter fan has noticed that, according to actual history, Fred's tragic death (let's not talk about it too much) was actually foreshadowed when George's ear was blasted off by a Death Eater.

It might sound like it makes zero sense, but HOLD UP. King George III was deaf in one ear when he took the throne in 1760 - and that was only because of the shocking early death of his brother, Prince Frederick.

HOW COOL. We have no idea whether this is JK Rowling's infinite wisdom showing itself again, or whether it's just a crazy coincidence, but either way it's kind of awesome.
