The Cloak of Invisibility helped Harry on many missions, including his hunt for Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes. Harry learned all about the Cloak of Invisibility, from the legend of the Deathly Hallows.
Lord Voldemort is the brother with the Elder Wand, Severus Snape is the brother with the resurrection stone and Harry Potter is the brother with the invisibility cloak.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone has sparked an interest in the invisibility cloak and many are debating who gave it to Harry.
Who gave Harry the invisibility cloak?
- Dumbledore gave Harry Potter the invisibility cloak.
In the first book of the series, “Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone,” headmaster Albus Dumbledore gives Harry an invisibility cloak as a gift that belonged to Harry’s father who passed away, James.
The gift included a note: “Your father left this in my possession when he died. It is time it was returned to you. Use it well.”
Harry also receives the resurrection stone from Dumbledore
During the first book, Harry catches a Golden Snitch by swallowing it during his first Quidditch match. Later, he discovers Dumbledore hid the resurrection stone within that snitch. After Dumbledore’s death, his will leaves the resurrection stone snitch to Harry.
For a while, Harry is unable to open the snitch. A sentence appears on the golden object that reads, “I open at the close.”
As Harry Potter walks to his death match with Lord Voldemort, he’s finally able to get the snitch open by whispering “I am about to die.” Inside, he finds the resurrection stone, Harry is then able to see all of his deceased family members.

The Cloak of Invisibility was passed down to Ignotus’ son and his son’s eldest daughter, Iolanthe, who then inherited it. The heirloom was then passed down the generations through the female line, the Potters, as Iolanthe had married Hardwin Potter from Stinchcombe.
The Cloak was therefore left to Harry and was kept by him after Lord Voldemort’s defeat. Harry confirmed that he would pass it on to his children one day, as the tradition goes.
