Professor Sakndenberg lived in the fifteenth century and was appointed Headmistress of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She died in 1503.


After her death, her portrait was hung in the Headmaster's office, so that she could advise the current Headmaster.[2] She had more portraits around the castle: in the East Wing,[3] Grand Staircase[4] and other halls.
