"His turban, he told them, had been given to him by an African prince as a thank-you for getting rid of a troublesome zombie, but they weren't sure they believed this story."
—Alleged African prince[src]

Quirinus Quirrell claimed to have received his turban from an African prince in return for ridding him of a zombie.[2] In reality, Quirrell used the turban to hide the face of Lord Voldemort on the back of his head. Therefore, it is possible that this individual does not exist, particularly as there are no wizarding princes, and it would be odd if a Muggle prince knew about a zombie, additionally, zombies are known to be native to South America.

Notes and references

  1. Remus Lupin states in Half-Blood Prince that there are no wizarding princes, and thus this prince must have inherited his nobility from Muggle ancestors.
  2. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Chapter 8 (The Potions Master)
