M. G. McGonagall was a Gryffindor student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the early 1970s. He or she played on the Gryffindor Quidditch team, winning an award for it in 1971, which was displayed at Hogwarts on a plaque that also bore the names of James Potter and R. J. H. King.

McGonagall may have been related to Transfiguration teacher Minerva McGonagall. It is very likely that M.G. McGonagall is one of her nephews or nieces from her two brothers, Robert Jr and Malcolm.

Notes and References

  1. He/she was at Hogwarts in 1971. (The person could have been in their first year, as Harry was the youngest Seeker in over a century, not just Quidditch player). 1 September is the eariest birthday possible to not be able to go to school that year upon turning 11. Sometime in early July is the latest possible birthday possible to be able to go to school that year upon turning 11.
