Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry[1]

Henry Bumblepuft[1] (b. 1493) was a wizard whose portrait hung at the ground-floor landing of the Grand Staircase in Hogwarts Castle[1]. His portrait was painted when he was forty-nine years old[1].


"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".

Behind the scenes


Stuart Craig stands by this portrait.

  • This portrait was comissioned specifically for the Harry Potter films, his face being inspired on the likeness of Stuart Craig, production designer for all the eight Harry Potter films.[2]
