Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Henry Bumblepuft[1] was a wizard, whose portrait was hung at the ground-floor landing of the Grand Staircase in Hogwarts Castle.[2] The painting was inscribed "Anno Etatis Suæ XLIX",[3] indicating it was done when he was 49, as anno etatis suæ is Latin for "in the year of his age".[4]


"Henry" is from the Germanic name Heimirich, which means "home ruler", composed of the elements heim, "home" and ric, "power", "ruler". It was later commonly spelled Heinrich, with the spelling altered due to the influence of other Germanic names, like Haganrich, in which the first element is hagan, "enclosure".
