Lottozahlen 30.12.15 the same chapter, we learn that the incident with Bob Familye took place in the summer of and the imprisonment of Marvolo Schefkoch De Morfin was "a few months" before the marriage. When she was due to give birth, she stumbled into a Muggle orphanage, where she gave birth to her only son, Tom Marvolo Riddle. She offered him a One Million Dollar Baby laced with a love potion, and he became infatuated with her; they soon eloped and, within three months of the marriage, Merope became pregnant.
She tricked Riddle into drinking a love potion, causing him to fall in love with her. Riddle left his fiancee, Cecilia, and married Merope.
Merope and Riddle were married for about a year, and she kept him under the influence of the potion for the whole time. She became pregnant with his child.
Eventually, she couldn't bare to keep controlling him and stopped giving him the potion. She hoped he would still lover her and stay, but he left once he got control over himself and returned to his parents.
Merope was destitute and unable to take care of herself. She was either unable or unwilling to use magic to save her own life.
On 31 December , right before she gave birth, Merope staggered onto the steps of Wool's orphanage. As she was giving birth, she told a staff member at the orphanage Mrs.
She died shorty after. She gave birth to Tom Riddle Jr. Since Voldemort was conceived through a love potion instead of through real love, he was born without the ability to feel love, which is why he was so willing to commit mass murder.

Ogden arrested both Marvolo and Morfin, who had cursed Riddle because his sister found him attractive. With her family gone, Merope manipulated Riddle into marrying her.
She left the shack with a farewell note revealing her marriage to Riddle, and her existence was never again mentioned by Marvolo. Although Harry Potter , upon learning of these events, speculated that she might have used the Imperius Curse or a Love Potion on Riddle, Dumbledore believed that she most likely used a Love Potion because it seemed more romantic.
Dumbledore also speculated that she could administer the love potion to him while mixing it with water or some other beverage.
In any case, Riddle became infatuated with her and they were married in late , running away to London together. This caused great scandal in Little Hangleton.
After a year of marriage, Merope Gaunt soon became pregnant and decided to release Riddle from his mental enslavement, having grown tired of living a lie.
Dumbledore thought that she did this hoping either that her husband would have truly fallen in love with her by that point, or that he would at least stay for the sake of their unborn child.
Unfortunately for her, Riddle did nothing of the kind. Riddle awoke into a nightmare and fled back to his family's home , believing to have been bewitched , although according to Albus Dumbledore, he probably did not say that exactly, for fear of being thought insane.
Instead, the villagers were told at most that he had been "taken in", in which they interpreted that Merope lied to Tom about being pregnant with his child.
After her husband's sudden escape, Merope soon fell into a deep depression and lived as a pauper in London, selling her valuables to survive in order to gain some gold.
With her heart broken and her dreams in tatters, Merope stopped using magic altogether after Riddle's desertion, not even willing to raise her wand to save her own life although, according to Dumbledore, it was also possible that her powers may have been sapped as a result of depression and also because of her unrequited love for Riddle.
On the night of New Year's Eve in , she staggered up the front steps of an orphanage , ready to give birth to a son.
She told Mrs Cole , a woman who worked in the orphanage, to name him Tom for his father, Marvolo for her father, and Riddle to be his surname.
Mrs Cole believed Marvolo was a "funny name", and wondered whether Merope had come from a circus. Merope died without warning, within an hour, and her last words were a final wish that her son would turn out to look like his father, which Mrs Cole said that she was right to hope it since Merope was no beauty.
Years later, her own son would find it difficult to believe that she could ever have been a witch, as she succumbed to something as mortal as death; he was, however, forced to accept that she was indeed a witch once finding nothing of "Tom Riddle" in the history of Hogwarts.
It seems she was too depressed to use magic after Riddle left her when the effects of her magic wore off on him. Her son would grow up believing his father married Merope of his own free will, only leaving her after discovering she was a witch.
Although Merope had a choice, she chose death in spite of a son that needed her due to the utterly miserable existence to which she had been condemned.
These circumstances caused even Harry Potter to feel a twinge of reluctant sympathy for Riddle. Merope's son would ultimately grow up to become the most dangerous Dark wizard of all time, Lord Voldemort.
Nevertheless, Dumbledore and Harry did not resent her, as they understood that given her suffering and lack of inner strength, she could not in good conscience be blamed for her son's corruption.
Her son, while contemptuous for her mortal weakness, did avenge her death by killing the elder Tom Riddle for abandoning both mother and son.
Despite her son's inability to feel love, he did sire a daughter, Delphini , with his most loyal servant, Bellatrix Lestrange.
This made Merope, posthumously, a grandmother. Merope possessed lank and dull hair. Her hair framed a plain, pale, and heavy face.
Her eyes like her brother's stared in opposite directions. She seemed to keep herself cleaner than her father and brother, but when Harry first saw her in a memory, he still thought of her as the most defeated-looking person he had ever seen.
When she lived in the Gaunt household, she wore a ragged grey dress that blended in with the stone walls of the house, and her only adornment was Salazar Slytherin's Locket , which hung from a gold chain around her neck.
Merope was physically and emotionally abused by her family, and as a result was timid and miserable for most of her life, traumatised to the point of being unable to perform magic well.
She could perform magic, but having been terrified of her father and brother, lacked confidence; thus, her magic was haphazard at best. However, she grew bolder and happier once Marvolo and Morfin were sent to Azkaban and displayed enough cunning and magical skill to manipulate the man she was in love with into marrying her.
By extension, she seems to have also been able to effectively manipulate her husband when he was under her control as to prevent him from becoming suspicious about the truth of their marriage and resisting her.
She loved Tom Riddle Snr obsessively, given the lengths to which she went to obtain his affection and her morbid depression after he left.
Even the responsibility of having a baby to look after was not enough to give Merope the will to live. Her obsession seemed to have grew into a desire for a genuine affectionate relationship as opposed to living a lie any further; she ceased her enslavement of Tom in hopes that he would have truly fallen in love with her, or at least remain for their unborn child.
Her naivety proved to be her undoing, as Tom felt nothing for his captor, and fled to never return. Having lived a life where she had always been miserable, Merope had no hope left and could not find the courage to make her want to keep trying, even for the sake of her newborn son.
This decision had a dramatically negative impact on her son's psyche. Despite this making Merope responsible for the creation of the most dangerous dark wizard of all time, both Albus Dumbledore and even if reluctantly, Harry Potter sympathised with her upbringing and did not bore her a grudge for it, with Dumbledore stating one should not judge her too harshly, as she had been greatly weakened by long suffering which resulted in her choosing to die instead of staying alive for her son, and she never had the courage and inner-strength of Lily Evans , Harry Potter's mother, who sacrificed herself willingly for her son.
Merope's relationship with her father and brother was a violent one where they treated her more like a slave than family, and forced her to do all the housework.
Her father, Marvolo, who placed the utmost importance on his heritage, tended to use words such as "squib" as putdowns and to make insinuations about blood status when as a form of insult.
Marvolo became furious with Merope's infatuation with a Muggle leading to the involvement of authorities and a stint in prison. Morfin made fun of Merope's romantic feelings for Tom Riddle , and laughed while watching Marvolo abuse her.
She was physically and emotionally abused by her family, and as a result was timid and miserable for most of her life, traumatised to the point of being unable to perform magic.
Upon discovering that Merope was a blood traitor , Marvolo went as far as to attempt to murder her in front of a Ministry official.
She grew bolder and happier once Marvolo and Morfin were sent to Azkaban , and displayed enough cunning and magical skill to brew a Love Potion.
However, Marvolo was shocked when he learned that Merope had left the house, despite never loving her to begin with, and never mentioned her name or existence ever again, and this was probably a shock that led to his death or possibly due to Merope no longer feeding him, as he never learned to feed himself.
Morfin then felt that Merope had betrayed him and Marvolo, for marrying that "filthy Muggle". Despite a lifetime of abuse at the hands of her father, Merope did give her son her father's name as a middle name, showing she might have had lingering affections for her father, sentiments that were not reciprocated.
An alternative explanation could be that Merope chose to name her son "Tom Marvolo Riddle" because she was likely reflecting on her life in her dying moments, and "Tom" and "Marvolo" were among the few male names that came to mind.
This could be due to her Gaunt upbringing leaving her with very few men in her life to truly interact with aside from Marvolo and Morfin before her marriage.
Tom Riddle was a handsome and wealthy Muggle, who lived near Merope's house. Like many people in Little Hangleton, Tom looked on with disdain on her father and brother , because of their poverty, their strange shabby appearances, and antisocial tendencies to those around them.
Tom's only mention of Merope, was briefly mentioning to his Darling Cecilia that Marvolo had two kids. Though Tom didn't seem to give Merope any thoughts, positive or negative, it was known that Merope was deeply enamoured by Riddle, and spied on him as he often rode by their house.
Merope then used a Love Potion on Tom, and the two eloped, she eventually became pregnant with Tom's child. Dumbledore had theorised that Merope, who was deeply, truly in love with her husband , could not bear to continue enslaving him by magical means, and made the choice to stop giving him the potion, convincing herself that he might have truly fallen in love with her of his own accord, or even if he had not, he would stay with her for their child's sake.
This turned out to be a fatal mistake; Tom, feeling as if he'd woken up from a nightmare, immediately escaped Merope to never return, claiming he had been "hoodwinked" and "taken in".
It was speculated among his neighbours that he had been tricked into thinking he was the father of her unborn child.
Merope was heartbroken and devastated by this, to the point of losing the will to live, and later died shortly after giving birth to his son.
