The Old Posh Baron was a portrait at Hogwarts Castle, portraying a kind, polite old nobleman.


1991–1992 school year

In the 1991–1992 school year, it hung in a Portrait Room next to the Great Hall, guarding a secret chamber where a Nimbus 2000 was kept. The password to this room, "Fizzy Pop", was traded to Harry Potter for fifty earwax flavour Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans by Fred and George Weasley. [1]

1992–1993 school year

In the 1992–1993 school year, the Portrait Room, where the Baron's portrait hung became an out-of-bounds area, so the portrait was moved to a secret room behind a bookcase, guarding a small chamber with a lever. [2]
