France is a country in Western Europe, though it also has territories in other parts of the world. France is bordered by Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Andorra, and Spain. It is the location of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Its capital is Paris, an important Muggle city famous for its fashion, art, history, and cuisine. France is one of the most visited countries in the world.[1]


Magical Education

The Beauxbatons Academy of Magic was founded in France in the thirteenth century or earlier[2].


Magical Games and sports

Quidditch had spread to France by the 1400s, as shown by references to it in the play Hélas, Je me suis Transfiguré Les Pieds by Malecrit[3]. France has a national Quidditch stadium and a national Quidditch team with mostly female players[4]. One of the French Quidditch teams is the Quiberon Quafflepunchers.

History

In the summer of 1993, Hermione Granger and her parents went on holiday in France, during which they visited the city of Dijon.

During the summer of 1995, when Rubeus Hagrid and Olympe Maxime went to parlay with the giants, they pretended that they were going on holiday in France to throw off the Ministry official that was tracking them.[5]
