Beauxbatons Academy of Magic

The Beauxbatons Carriage[1] (French: Le carrosse de Beauxbâtons)[2] was a light-blue carriage pulled by a dozen winged horses used to transport the staff and 7th year students of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic.

Despite being used as transportation by Beauxbatons, travelling in an Abraxan horse-drawn giant carriage is a breach of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy.[3]

History

1994-1995

When Beauxbatons competed in the 1994 Triwizard Tournament, the students and their Headmistress Olympe Maxime travelled to Hogwarts in the carriage and back to Beauxbatons once the Tournament had finished.

Due to Barty Crouch Sr.'s, one of the tournament's judges, disappearance was near the carriage's area, Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge suspected Madame Maxime to be the culprit, though this accusation was due to his personal prejudice since she is a Half-giant.

1997

When Madame Maxime attended Albus Dumbledore's funeral in 1997, she travelled to Hogwarts in the carriage.
