Uncle Vernon was waiting beyond the barrier. Mrs Weasley was close by him. She hugged Harry very tightly when she saw him, and whispered in his ear, ‘I think Dumbledore will let you come to us later in the summer. Keep in touch, Harry.’ - Goblet of Fire, CH 37, “The Beginning”

↳Regulus Arcturus BlackREGULUS — “The Little King” | “The King Star”
ETYMOLOGY: According to the Babylonians, Regulus is “the star that stands at the lion’s breast” (referring to Leo). Regulus means “the little king” or “prince” in Latin (diminutive of rex — “king”). The star is first believed to have been referred to as Regulus by Copernicus. It is likely a translation of the Hellenistic Greek word Basilikos (“little king”) used by Geminos and Ptolemy, though it could also be a translation of the Babylonian Lugal, which means “king.” The Arabic name for the star is Qalb al-Asad, meaning “heart of the lion.”
