Elizabeth II (full name Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) was the reigning queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries during the 1990s.[1]

History

Corgi incident

In September 1991, one of the Queen's corgwn was transformed into a hamster by an unknown witch or wizard, prompting the Improper Use of Magic Office to launch an investigation and question several suspects.[2] The motive behind this attack was unknown at the time,[2] and it is not known if the culprit was ever found.

Muggle authorities, on the other hand, concluded that the Queen's corgi had been stolen and replaced with a hamster as a "cruel" prank.[2] They launched a "full scale" search to attempt to locate the dog.[2]

The incident was reported in the 6 September 1991 issue of the Daily Prophet.[2]

Behind the scenes

Etymology
