    So I was thinking earlier today.. Harry is unique in that he is the only known person to have survived AK, thanks to Lily's sacrifice. So, are we to believe that in all the hundreds/thousands of years of wizarding history, not one other person has jumped in front of AK to save a loved one?? Or am I missing/overlooking something?

    Nope, that's right. Or maybe the key is in "KNOWN person in wizarding history". Maybe he was the only one people knew about since it was a high profile case. At the same time it was also to do with the intent. Lily wasn't going to die. Maybe all the other people who jumped in front we're going to be killed either way.

    Maybe the key there is intent as crapple has said.
    Either
    A) the murderer using the spell was going to kill the person doing the sacrificing anyway so the spell still worked or
    B) because the person who jumped in front knew that it had worked previously and saved a person didn't have the same blind and pure love that Lily had?


    Btw I am also grateful there are no books with movie still covers. Ugh.
