'''Madame Olympe Maxime''' was the [[Headmaster|headmistress]] of [[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic]].

Maxime and some of her students went to [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry]] in October of [[1994]] for the [[Triwizard Tournament]]. She made such an impact on [[Professor]] [[Rubeus Hagrid]] that he immediately started trying to impress her: he tried to tame his hair, wore his best ill-fitting clothes, and even showed her the [[Triwizard Tournament]] [[dragon]]s while they were still meant to be a secret. Given his lack of social graces, however, this was not so successful. It is unclear whether she was impressed by this, but either way, [[Rubeus Hagrid|Hagrid]] scuppered any chance he might have had at the [[Yule Ball]]. It was here that he put it to Olympe that she was a [[half-giant]]ess just like him - he was right, of course, but she was not inclined to conced such a point, and, for the rest of her stay, avoided his company.

Madam Maxime appeared to get on well with her students.

"I 'ave nevair been more insulted in my life! 'Alf-giant? Moi? I 'ave - I 'ave big bones!"
—Olympe Maxime to Rubeus Hagrid.[src]

Madame Olympe Maxime (fl. 1994-2010) was the headmistress of Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Maxime's preferred mode of transportation is to travel with her students in a powder-blue carriage drawn by twelve winged Abraxan horses, which are bred at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Madame Maxime is a half-giantess, although she claims merely to have "big bones."

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Olympe Maxime was born to one magical parent and one giant, making her a half-giantess. She kept this heritage hidden, out of fear of the prejudice that would strike her were it to be revealed. She was likely educated at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic in France, where she later became Headmistress.

1994-1995Edit

Maxime and some of her students went to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in October of 1994 for the Triwizard Tournament. She made such an impact on Professor Rubeus Hagrid that he immediately started trying to impress her: he tried to tame his hair, wore his best ill-fitting clothes, and even showed her the Triwizard Tournament dragons while they were still meant to be a secret. Given his lack of social graces, however, this was not so successful. It is unclear whether she was impressed by this, but either way, Hagrid scuppered any chance he might have had at the Yule Ball. It was here that he put it to Olympe that she was a half-giantess just like him - he was right, of course, but she was not inclined to conced such a point, and, for the rest of her stay, avoided his company.

During the summer of 1995 Rubeus Hagrid and Madame Maxime visited the giants as envoys for Albus Dumbledore. Hagrid described her spellwork as "brilliant". She separated from Hagrid during the return journey, however, because he would not abandon his half-brother Grawp, who proved to be a highly taxing travelling companion; she returned to Beauxbatons alone.

1997Edit

In 1997, Madame Maxime was among those paying respects at Dumbledore's funeral. She and Hagrid comforted each other during this occasion, though this may have been inspired solely by the emotion of the moment. She also attended the wedding of Bill Weasley and former Beauxbatons student Fleur Delacour later on that same year.[2]

Later lifeEdit

It is unknown if she and Hagrid ever rekindled their relationship, although ultimately they never married. [3]

By the 2010s, Madame Maxime was still headmistress of Beauxbatons.[4]

Physical appearanceEdit
