Ron began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1991 at the customary age of eleven.
He was Sorted into Gryffindor House, like every other Weasley.
He was also the younger brother of Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, and the elder brother of Ginny.
Ron and his brothers and sister lived in the Burrow.
On his first trip on the Hogwarts Express, Ron met and became fast friends with famous wizard Harry Potter.
Harry let him share his carriage on the Hogwarts Express and showed an understanding of Ron's circumstance, not much different from his own, by purchasing a large amount of wizarding snacks from the Hogwarts Express food trolley to share with Ron, and that simple act started a lifelong friendship.
Like all his siblings, he was home educated in reading, writing and simple maths by his mother.
The Weasley family was not wealthy at all, compared to other wizarding families.
Together, they faced many challenges during their adolescence, including keeping the Philosopher's Stone from Professor Quirinus Quirrell, saving Ron's sister from the Chamber of Secrets, forming Dumbledore's Army, and fighting in numerous battles of the Second Wizarding War: including the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (1996), Battle of the Astronomy Tower (1997), and Battle of the Seven Potters (1997).
Ron also became a Gryffindor prefect and a Keeper on the Gryffindor Quidditch team during his fifth year at Hogwarts.
He and Hermione eventually married and had two children, Rose and Hugo Granger-Weasley.
