Poudlard (in English , who means word-with-word " wart of cochon"), is the school of sorcery of Harry Potter, invented by J.K. Rowling.
Poudlard was founded, surely with the Moyen-âge, by:
- Godric Gryffondor, which gave its name to the house Gryffondor;
- Salazar Serpentard, which gave its name to the house Serpentard;
- Helga Poufsouffle, which gave its name to the house Poufsouffle;
- Rowena Serdaigle, which gave its name to the house Serdaigle.
The school of sorcery is directed at the commencement of the series by Albus Dumbledore it is opened with all, some is the origin: children of Moldus and children of Sorciers côtoient themselves there. The assistant editor is Minerva McGonagall. Several matters are taught there (fates and enchantments, the potions, the divination, defense against the forces of the evil which will become in the year the 97-98 art of the black magic, the history of the magic, astronomy, botany,…). Fifty years before, Voldemort made its entry there as simple pupil, but it will pass by again the doors of the institution much later because it would wish to have a station in the school, which was refused to him.
Salazar Serpentard, the creator of the Serpentard house scorned the moldus and was opposed so that their children can enter in Poudlard… Contradicted by the three others, it left the school, creating the Chambre of the secrecies intended to be open by its Héritier and to destroy the pupils born parents moldus… Voldemort, then simple pupil will open the Room and will be responsible for the Mort of a pupil who remained forever a Fantôme: Mimi Geignarde ... Poudlard abounds in secrecies such as the Room of the Secrecies whose passage is in the toilets of the girls occupied by Mimi Geignarde and who opens only by speaking the Fourchelang, the Salle on request whose the Armée with Dumbledore is useful to involve itself safe from Ombrage. Under ground kept by a dog with three heads, which contained the philosopher stone. The office of Dumbledore forms also part of the hidden parts; it is necessary to pronounce a Formule which often changes to make move the statue of Aigle and discover a staircase behind this one. When Harry is convened at Dumbledore in volume 2, McGonagall uses the password “Lemon-yellow Sorbet”. In the volumes according to the password is often the name of a delicacy that Dumbledore affectionne.
Poudlard includes/understands also greenhouses where the courses of botany take place, a lake, by which the boat of Dumstrang arrives but also a forest, prohibited with the pupils, where live magic heaps of creatures: Centaurs, Unicorns, spiders giant and even Graup the Giant half-brother of Hagrid.
Poudlard is kept by Argus Rusard, it is a Cracmol, it was born in a family from wizard but does not have any capacity, it is intransigent and the pupils locate his arrival because it is always preceded by his she-cat Miss Tinea.
Hagrid also is a guard of Poudlard, or rather he is gamekeeper… It is Dumbledore which has creates the station when Hagrid was returned school because it was shown to have opened the Room of the Secrecies. Hagrid knows the forest better than whoever, and hides there his/her giant half-brother, his giant spider of Aragog company but also the dragons being used for the test of the Goblet of fire.
