Nicolas Flamels death
It is not confirmed that he died in the end of the 1991—1992 school year because Albus Dumbledore said that he had enough Elixir to bring his things in order, but he would die. He can possibly have died 1991—1992 school year, he can also have died later such as 1992—1993 school year, 1993—1994 school year, 1994—1995 school year or later. --Danniesen August 16 2010 16:12
- JKR stated in the Rumours section of her website that "Flamel has now died", and AccioQuote dates that posting as April 2005, so we're certain he died before then. 220.127.116.11 14:55, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
In Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film) Hermione Granger reads a book about him, she reads that he last year celebrated his 665th birthday that means he may have turned 666 years old before death.
in the book, Harry Potter and the Philosoper's Stone, it says that the book Hermione got her information from was "an enormous old book," so the accuracy of Flamel's age is most likely out of date, so he is probably much older than that when he died.
Also known as... *Nicolas Flamel
On the "Also Known As" bit it says "Nicolas Flamel". I suggest we get rid of that as that is his name, not an also known as. I would, but I don't know how to edit info boxes.

- I've removed the redundant A.K.A. from the infobox. Thanks for pointing it out. ★ Starstuff (Owl me!) 09:48, April 18, 2011 (UTC)
"In his youth, Nicolas attended Beauxbatons Academy of Magic in the Pyrenees Mountains of France, and it was at Beauxbatons that he met Perenelle, his future wife. It is said that he later funded both the castle and the grounds, and a fountain on the grounds was named after the couple"
Okay, is it just me not reading it right, or does the text suggest he attended the school, met his wife there and then founded it afterwards?
And how do we know he attended it anyway? Pottermore states that they meet there, it does not confirm that he was schooled there. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Simen Johannes Fagerli (talk • contribs).
I think we have to rewrite the entire text passage.
Pottermore states that the building of the palace was partially financed by Flamel. This means parts of the palace were build years, possibly centuries, after the school's founding and he helped financing it. (If I understand the text correctly.)
- (edit conflict) Typically, when one meets at a school in their youth, it means they met while at attendence of that school. (And as Rodolphus stated, it explictly calls both Flamels ex-students later on.) And I think you've (both) misread otherwise. It says he funded the school, that is, he provided money for its upkeep, not that he founded it. In fact, it's impossible for Flamel to have founded the school; he was born in the 14th century, but the first Triwizard Tournament, which has always been a championship between Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang, was in the 13th century. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 18:17, January 20, 2014 (UTC)
- Ah, that's it! He funded it! Yeah, I thought that seemed a bit strange. Okay, nice to have that sorted out. I apologize for forgetting signing my post... again. :p
- Did you find my changes on Karkaroff and Durmstrang just about correct? User:Simen Johannes Fagerli
