Gunhilda of Gorsemoor (1556-1639) was a one-eyed, hump-backed Healer who discovered a cure for dragon pox.[1]

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Not much is known about Gunhilda of Gorsemoor's early life. She was born in 1556, and might have attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in her youth, from c. 1567- 1574.

As a HealerEdit

Gunhilda of Gorsemoor USA Card

Gunhilda, treating a sick wizard.

At some point in her life, Gunhilda became a Healer. She was seen as a talented and hard-working Healer by everyone who knew her. A gifted potioneer, Gunhilda became very famous for her development of the cure for dragon pox, a disease that in worst cases can and did kill many wizards, including Chauncey Oldridge[3] and, more recently, Abraxas Malfoy.[4] Although effective, Gunhilda's cure has not eradicated the disease.[5]

Death and legacyEdit

After her death in 1639, everyone who knew her felt great sorrow.[1] The great Healer might have died but she was not forgotten; her cure for dragon pox continued saving lives many centuries after her death. For this, Gunhilda was featured in a Chocolate Frog Card.[1] A statue of Gunhilda can be found in the Gunhilda of Gorsemoor Corridor on the third-floor at Hogwarts Castle. When one taps the statue's hump with a wand and incants the spell Dissendium, a secret passage is opened, leading to the basement of Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade Village, a passage which Harry Potter used.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

Statue of Gunhilda of Gorsemoor (also known as One-Eyed Witch)

This statue of Gunhilda can be found at Hogwarts Castle.

EtymologyEdit

The name "Gunhilda" is from the Old Norse name Gunnhildr, derived from the elements gunnr "war" and hildr "battle".
