I don't understand, i thought that the Wizard's council was begging for protection to William and Mary and after they refused, the International Statute was created. But this article says that William and Mary were begging for protection to the Ministry.
- I guess it does mean that. I could not say why William and Mary would be begging the Ministry for protection under Muggle law. Unless someone could enlighten me? -- 00:56, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
