The father of Minerva McGonagall, Reverend Robert McGonagall was a Muggle Presbyterian minister who lived in the highlands of Scotland during the early 20th century. He married Isobel Ross, a Hogwarts-educated witch and had several children: Minerva, their oldest child and only daughter, and two younger sons, Malcolm and Robert Jr.
Minerva McGonagall attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1946 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. She graduated in 1954, after which she proceeded to replace Albus Dumbledore as Transfiguration Professor, as well as Head of Gryffindor House. She taught hundreds of students during her time there, while she also assisted the Order of the Phoenix in the war against Lord Voldemort. After the ousting of Severus Snape, Minerva became the full time Headmistress of the school.
