The Senior Undersecretary to the Minister for Magic is a high-ranking position within the Ministry of Magic, acting as its second-in-command, and answerable only to the Minister for Magic.

Dolores Umbridge is the only person known to have held the title, serving under Cornelius Fudge, Rufus Scrimgeour, and then Pius Thicknesse, until she was arrested and imprisoned in Azkaban for her crimes against Muggle-borns in 1998.

Real World Connections

The style of the title reflects the Ministry's appropriation of standard British Civil Service hierarchy and labelling of posts.

Behind the Scenes

  • During Harry Potter's Careers Advice session, when Professor McGonagall supported Albus Dumbledore's return to Hogwarts after his dismissal, Umbridge went into hysterics and proclaimed that Minerva had plans to make Dumbledore Minister for Magic and that she would become his Senior Undersecretary by usurping Umbridge's position, accusations that Minerva took as offensive.
