Klaus is described as the oldest and most feared of all originals (and vampires), but is he the oldest???

Elena in 2x09 says referring to Klaus: "The oldest vampire in the history of time is coming after me?", yet Damon in 2x21 says: "How does one go about killing an all powerful wolf-vamp and his two-faced OLDER brother?"

So, in 2x09 Klaus is the oldest....but in 2x21 Elijah is the oldest...

Someone asked Julie on twitter who was the youngest out of Elijah and Klaus and Julie said that she believes that Klaus is the youngest...

Klaus looks younger then I think Elijah is older....but if Elijah's older then why is Klaus described as "The oldest vampire in the history of time."???

Does anyone get who's older or have they made a mistake???

I've always said that even though Elijah is described as the easter bunny compared to Klaus it has nothing to do with who's more powerful and who's older...but I'm confused now to who is older....

I thought Klaus was the youngest..Also I think that Elijah kind of sees Damon with Elena as a version of him with Katerina. look what it says here..that Elijah is older than Klaus.

Oldest vampire does not have to mean oldest brother. Oldest vampire could mean first vampire, but we will not really know that until we know how they became vampires. In 2x09 the line probably should have been "one of the oldest vampires in the history of time," if the entire family turned together. We do now know that Elijah was humanly born before Klaus.

Since very little was known about the originals, it was probably thought that Klaus was considered the oldest and most powerful of the vampires. Oldest i highly doubt but powerful I can believe that, I believe he can be considered the most powerful of the originals due to his hybrid (having the strength of both vampire and werewolf abilities). Elijah probably wanted all the vampires and everyone else to think that Klaus was older for personal reasons and that rumor was probably spread around the vampire community over the years and passed down throughout the centuries.

I believe that Klaus is the youngest of all the originals. Their mother probably didn't love their father as much as she used to and fell in love with someone else who was more than likely a werewolf himself and hence, she gave birth to Klaus, who is a hybrid (mother's vampire and father's werewolf gene). Now I cannot speculate whether Elijah is the oldest of the siblings, we have not seen any of the others yet, but we will eventually see some of them (hopefully) in season 3 because that season is considered the season of the originals.

So now only a small handful of non-originals know the truth about Klaus not being the oldest of the originals after learning about Elijah and Klaus' relationship. That's just my personal theory.

I always assumed it was Klaus that was the older one

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
