Important events that occurred in 1800 in the Wizarding World

Let’s forget about all the characters in the Harry Potter saga that we knew until now, since practically none were born in 1800, but that does not mean that interesting things did not happen during this time, as JK Rowling has gradually revealed through of passages described in the novels themselves or on their Wizarding World website where the story of the magical world is fed.

Quidditch is the most famous magical sport, although its rules become quite rare, and in some respects even absurd.

Hogwarts Express is created in 1830Although it will take more than 100 years for platform 9 and 3/4 to be established (in 1952) its construction may be an important event in the game. Elladora Black was born in 1850, ancestor of Sirius Black, and known for guarding the heads of the elves who had served her, she is also the sister of Phineas Nigellus Black, “the least popular director of Hogwarts in history”, in the words of his own great-great grandson. They may both appear as young students.

In 1891 is when Dumbledore’s younger sister, Ariana, is attacked by some Muggle boys, provoking the fury of her father who is later sent to Azkaban for the torture he subjected them to.
