Notes and references

  1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 24 (Occlumency) "Looks like we’ll have to split up,” said Tonics briskly, looking around for empty chairs. “Fred, George, and Ginny, if you just take those seats at the back … Remus can stay with you. …” She, Harry, Ron, and Hermione proceeded up to the very top deck..." Harry begins Occlumency lessons the next day which according to the same chapter was on a Monday, placing the date he returned to Hogwarts on a Sunday
  2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 24 (Occlumency) “I will expect you at six o’clock on Monday evening, Potter. My office." - Severus Snape, this is the day after Harry returns to school via the Knight Bus after holiday break
  3. 3.0 3.1 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 25 (The Beetle at Bay) states that Broderick died the same day the new term started at Hogwarts. The new term started on a Monday in early January, the same day Harry Potter started Occlumency lessons (see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 24 (Occlumency) - "Six o’clock Monday evening, Potter.”). It is stated in the Daily Prophet the next day on a Tuesday, that he died the night before
  4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 25 (The Beetle at Bay) The day after Harry's first Occulmency lesson on a Monday in early January, the Daily Prophet states "The Ministry of Magic announced late last night that there has been a mass breakout from Azkaban" placing the date of the breakout the day before
  5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 24 (Occlumency) "Er — d’you want to come into Hogsmeade with me on Valentine’s Day?” “Oooh, yes!” she said, blushing crimson and beaming at him." It is confirmed they did go on Valentine's day in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 25 (The Beetle at Bay)
  6. 6.0 6.1 April started in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 27 (The Centaur and the Sneak) page 605, when it is said March "blurred into a squally April". In Chapter 28, Page 634, Hermione Granger said that “the Easter holidays start on Friday”. Easter in 1996 was on Sunday 7 April. The Easter holidays therefore can only have started on Friday 5 April. Dumbledore's Army was discovered, Dumbledore left and Educational Decree Number Twenty Eight happened between pages 605 and 634. Then, pages 635 to 650 took place the next day. It is still not the Easter Holidays. Therefore, pages 605 to 650 took place between Monday 1 April to Friday 5 April.
  7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 29 (Careers Advice) It happened on the same day Harry met with Professor McGonagall for advice. He met with her on a Monday ("he was expected in Professor McGonagall’s office at half-past two on Monday") and it was the first day back at school following the final Easter holiday weekend. The Easter Holidays are traditionally two weeks long, but there is a chance it could be three at Hogwarts since Christmas is traditionally two weeks but has been confirmed in the OOTP to be three weeks at Hogwarts. Either way, it places the day Fred and George left school at the end of April

  22. Roger's at least two years older than Harry Potter since he was captain of Ravenclaw's Quidditch team from at least 1993 to 1996 and Fleur considered him old enough to go to the Yule Ball with when she declined Ron. Therefore, Roger left Hogwarts following the 1995-1996 school year
  23. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Chapter 16 (The Goblet of Fire) states her seventeeth birthday was in October 1994. Therefore, she was in her sixth year then and left school in the 1995-1996 school year
  24. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone states Lee Jordan was in the same year as Fred and George Weasley meaning he would have left school in the 1995-1996 school year
  25. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 9 (The Half-Blood Prince) states that Katie Bell was "the only remaining member of the original Gryffindor Quidditch team that Harry had joined in his first year". Alicia was still a member of the team the following year, since she is mentioned to be on the team in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 14 (Percy and Padfoot). This means she left following the 1995-1996 school year

  28. Fudge says in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 1 (The Other Minister) that Emmeline and Amelia died the same week as the chapter takes place in ("I have been having the same week you have had... the Bones and Vance murders"). Fudge was sacked on 2 July, "a fortnight" after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries on 18 June. Fudge says he was sacked "three days ago", making the date of the chapter 5 July. A week ago would be 28 June and they cannot have died more than a day earlier on 4 July, meaning they died between that time.
  29. It is explicitly stated that Karkaroff was able to stay alive for "a year" meaning that he died sometime after June 1996 (as this was "a year" after he fled) and when it was revealed to the Order.
