The English Channel is a body of water that separates the island of Great Britain from continental Europe, whilst connecting the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea.

History

In 1422, a large white rabbit was spotted by Muggles crossing the English Channel in a cauldron with a sail fitted to it. A rabbit of that description later became a trusted advisor at the court of King Henry VI — a fact that contributed to the Muggle King's reputation for mental instability. While this has never been proven by authorities on History of Magic, it is believed this rabbit was the Animagus form of Lisette de Lapin, a famous French sorceress who had been, earlier that same year, convicted of witchcraft in Paris, but had vanished from her prison cell the night before she was due to be executed.[1]
