"I've got Morgana again and I've got about six of her."
Ron Weasley discussing Morgan le Fay's Chocolate Frog Card[src]

Morgan le Fay, more commonly known as Morgana, was a powerful Dark witch who lived during the Middle Ages.[2]

Biography

Lifetime

Morgan le Fay was born and lived during the Middle Ages.[2] She was known to have had a half-brother, Arthur.[2]

During her lifetime, Morgan le Fay played a role in numerous events, and was a powerful witch, being a proficient healer as well as an Animagus (taking the form of a bird).[1] She also ruled as Queen of the Island of Avalon.[1]

However, she was also a practitioner of the Dark Arts, and was an enemy of the great wizard Merlin.[2]

Legacy

Morgan le Fay was featured on a Chocolate Frog Card centuries after her death.[3] Ron Weasley claimed he owned "about six" of this card in 1991.[3]

Magical abilities and skills

  • Dark Arts: Morgana's famous Wizard Card described her as a powerful Dark witch.[2]
  • Animagus: Morgana was revealed to have mastered the art of Self-Transfiguration, being able to turn herself into a bird at will.[1]
  • Transfiguration: Morgana was so skilled in Self-Transfiguration that she was able to become an Animagus.
  • Healing magic: Morgana was noted to be particularly gifted in the art of healing magic.[1]

Behind the scenes

Morgan le Fay-Card

Morgan le Fay on a Famous Wizard Card

  • Morgan le Fay is based on the legendary figure of the same name, the daughter of King Arthur's mother the Lady Igraine and her first husband Gorlois, Duke of Cornwall (making her Arthur's half-sister in legend too).
  • In the film Merlin, with Sam Neill as the title character, Morgan le Fay was portrayed by Helena Bonham Carter, who later went on to play Dark witch Bellatrix Lestrange.
  • Before Emma Watson got the part of Hermione Granger she had acted only in school plays; one was "Arthur's Early Years", in which she played the role of Morgan le Fay.
  • Morgan le Fay's time of existence in the Harry Potter Universe (like Merlin, King Arthur etc) is paradoxical as the Morgan le Fay of the Arthurian legends is said to have lived in the 5th or 6th century. As Merlin attended Hogwarts and she was an enemy of Merlin, then she, like the legendary version of Merlin predates Hogwarts by around 400/500 years.
