|M. G. McGonagall|
c. 1960 or earlier
M. G. McGonagall was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the early 1970s. He or she played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, winning an award for it in 1971, which was displayed at Hogwarts on a plaque that also bore the names of James Potter and R. J. H. King.
Behind the scenesEdit
- The name M. G. McGonagall appears only in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. M. G. McGonagall cannot have been the same person as Minerva McGonagall, as Minerva attended Hogwarts as a student circa 1937 to 1944, and taught there beginning in December 1956. However, it does not say what place on the team that they played, so, it could be Minerva McGonagall if it is referring to her as head of House for Gryffindor, which presumably won the cup that year. It is also possible that it is referring to Minerva's younger brother, Malcolm McGonagall, as it is not stated how much younger than Minerva he is.
- In the video game adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a trophy can be found in the Trophy Room near the Great Hall. Inspecting it causes Ron to comment on the presence of Minerva McGonagall's name near James Potter's, to which Harry speculates that it may have been due to her being Head of Gryffindor House at the time. However, these two awards cannot be considered the same, as the one seen in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a plaque, and not a cup. Also, while Harry is standing next to the cup, Ron is still standing in the middle of the Trophy Room and it is possible that he's not talking about the cup at all, but about the different plaques that are hanging on the fireplace right in front of him.
