Dame Antonia Creaseworthy was a witch whose portrait hung at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]


During her lifetime, Creaseworthy acquired the title "Dame,"[2] the female equivalent of the honour of knighthood in Great Britain.[3]

In the winter of 1993, Creaseworthy's name appeared on the Marauder's Map,[4] possibly indicating that she was still alive at this point, or lingering at Hogwarts as a ghost.[5]

After her death,[1] a portrait of her was hung somewhere at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]
