"But Hogsmeade's a very interesting place, isn't it? In Sites of Historical Sorcery it says the inn was the headquarters for the 1612 goblin rebellion..."
Hermione Granger recounts facts she knows about Hogsmeade.[src]

The 1612 goblin rebellion was one of a series of rebellions in which the goblin population of the wizarding world revolted against the discrimination and prejudice towards their kind on behalf of wizards and witches.

This particular rebellion occurred in 1612 and took place in the vicinity of Hogsmeade Village; one of the village's inns was used as headquarters for the rebellion.[1] Although exact casualties are unknown, they were presumably quite high on both sides, as the rebellions have been described as "bloody and vicious".

Behind the scenes

  • It is unclear which of the inns in Hogsmeade Hermione is referring to as headquarters during this rebellion, though it was presumably either the Three Broomsticks Inn or the Hog's Head Inn.
