"Historians disagree about the origins of [Expelliarmus]. Some claim that it was invented by Merlin himself, others that it was in widespread use in Madagascar as early as the eleventh century."
Miranda Goshawk, Book of Spells.[src]

Madagascar is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of Africa.

Although the origins of the Disarming Charm are obscure, some wizarding historians suggest that the charm originated in Madagascar, claiming that it was in widespread use there in the 11th century. Others, however, claim that Merlin was the one who invented it; while yet others (such as Miranda Goshawk) find it much more likely that its inventor was Elizabeth Smudgling, in 1379.[1]
