Behind the scenes
Notes and references
- ↑ Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 1 (The Other Minister) tells us that Cornelius Fudge was sacked a fortnight after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries (18 June, 1996). Thus, Fudge had been sacked on 2 July, 1996. Since Fudge tells us that that was "three days ago", the chapter is set on Friday, 5 July, 1996.
