Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Arthur Weasley was admitted to St. Mungo's in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' after being bitten by Lord Voldemort's snake. Where was he when he was attacked by Nagini?

Answer: A corridor outside the Department of Mysteries

At the time of Arthur's injury, Harry was unaware of the location of the corridor, but he eventually recognised it as the one leading to the Department of Mysteries during his first Occlumency lesson with Professor Snape. The Order of the Phoenix had been guarding the corridor in order to prevent Lord Voldemort from retrieving a record that was being kept in the department's Hall of Prophecy. Arthur Weasley was the unfortunate Order member on duty on the night that Voldemort possessed his snake, Nagini, and slithered into the Ministry. Arthur would likely have died from the effects of the snake bite (or at the very least had some extremely awkward questions to answer about why he was there) if Harry hadn't witnessed the events via his mental connection with Voldemort and raised the alarm.

Although St. Mungo's had been mentioned in previous novels, this event gave both Harry and the reader their first glimpse of the hospital and the vast range of magical diseases and accidents it dealt with. After a stay of a few days, the Healers of St. Mungo's managed to find an antidote to Nagini's venom and cure Arthur's snake bite wound, but not before he'd persuaded one of them to have a go at applying a good old muggle remedy - stitches!
2. Frank and Alice Longbottom became long-term patients in St. Mungo's Janus Thickey Ward after they were tortured using the Cruciatus Curse and driven insane. Harry Potter witnessed the sentencing of the Longbottoms' attackers when he fell into Albus Dumbledore's pensieve in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'. Bellatrix, Rabastan and Rodolphus Lestrange were three of them - who was the fourth?

Answer: Barty Crouch Jr.

Neville Longbottom was brought up by his grandmother after as his parents, Frank and Alice, were attacked by the Lestranges and Crouch. Frank and Alice were Aurors and had both been members of the Order of the Phoenix, which made them key targets for the disgruntled Death Eaters who had just lost their leader. Their permanent incapacitation was caused by repeated exposure to the Cruciatus Curse - the Unforgivable Curse that inflicted agonising pain on those unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of it.

At his appearance before the Wizengamot, Barty Crouch Jr. was described as "a boy in his late teens, who looked nothing short of petrified" and loudly protested his innocence. His appearance was in stark contrast to that of Bellatrix Lestrange, who was proud of her actions and swore her ongoing loyalty to Lord Voldemort. Of course it later transpired that Crouch was a loyal Death Eater; he impersonated Mad-Eye Moody and arranged for Harry to win the Tri-Wizard Tournament and be whisked off to Lord Voldemort the moment he touched the trophy.

The incorrect options were all Death Eaters who were sentenced to Azkaban after the initial fall of Lord Voldemort. Karkaroff was later released after he turned informant and implicated Augustus Rookwood as a Voldemort spy. Antonin Dolohov was convicted of numerous crimes including the murders of Fabian and Gideon Prewett - Molly Weasley's brothers.
3. You don't have to be a witch or a wizard to obtain treatment at St. Mungo's; ordinary muggles suffering from extraordinary magic-induced ailments can also receive help there. In 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' it was noted that two muggles were admitted to St. Mungo's after being attacked by Willy Widdershins' biting doorknobs. True or false?

Answer: True

The two muggles who fell victim to Willy Widdershins' less than amusing prank of creating biting doorknobs were never named by J.K. Rowling. However, we do know that the incident cost them some fingers and they had to be admitted to St. Mungo's in order to have the digits regrown - presumably thanks to some doses of 'Skelegro'. However, since the International Statute of Secrecy stated that the one overarching law of the magical world was to conceal its existence from muggles, St. Mungo's also had to apply the additional 'treatment' of "memory modification" to be certain that the muggles in question left the hospital with no memory of their stay or the incident that landed them there in the first place. Although that might not have been a bad thing - being left with a phobia of doorknobs would be inconvenient to say the least!

Willy Widdershins was first mentioned in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' as having been arrested for enchanting muggle public toilets to regurgitate their contents. It turned out that he had avoided prosecution by informing Dolores Umbridge about Harry Potter's plan to create the Defence Against the Dark Arts group that became known as Dumbledore's Army.
4. The flamboyant Gilderoy Lockhart managed to commit himself to St. Mungo's when he was hit by his own back-firing Memory Charm in 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'. Who was the owner of the wand he was using at the time?

Answer: Ron Weasley

Gilderoy Lockhart's credentials as Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher appeared to be the exploits he described in his numerous books such as "Travels with Trolls", "Wanderings with Werewolves" and "Voyages with Vampires". However, the students' experiences with Lockhart were distinctly underwhelming when he proved to be incapable of controlling a collection of Cornish pixies and was soundly trounced by Professor Snape in a Duelling Club demonstration.

However, Lockhart got his comeuppance when he was tasked with rescuing Ginny Weasley from the Chamber of Secrets. He attempted to flee the castle, but was stopped by Harry and Ron who forced him to help them with their own rescue mission. He then admitted that his only real skill was in performing the Memory Charms that had allowed him to take the credit for the brave actions of other witches and wizards. His new plan was to obliviate Harry and Ron, but when he used Ron's broken wand to do it, the spell backfired and all he managed to do was obliviate himself. After the events of this book he wasn't seen again until Harry, Ron and Hermione's visit to St. Mungo's in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'. It turned out that the damage he'd done to himself had rendered him a permanent resident of the Janus Thickey ward.
5. Broderick Bode was the unfortunate patient of St. Mungo's who was killed by his bedside pot plant in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'. Why had he been admitted to the hospital in the first place?

Answer: He was injured in the Hall of Prophecy

Broderick Bode was an "Unspeakable" - someone who worked in the Ministry of Magic's Department of Mysteries. He was placed under the Imperius Curse by a Death Eater and instructed to enter the department's Hall of Prophecy to remove the record of the prophecy made by Sybil Trelawney that connected the fates of Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter. It turned out that prophecies could only be removed from their shelves by someone that they related to and anyone else who tried to take them suffered a nasty fate - in Bode's case, he lost the ability to speak and was left believing that he was a teapot. However, he met a worse fate in St. Mungo's when he started to recover and was swiftly assassinated with a Devil's Snare plant before he could reveal what he had been forced to do.

The incorrect options are all examples of the various types of sickness or injury that were treated on the different floors of St. Mungo's. "Broom crashes" were given as an example of the "Artefact Accidents" treated on the ground floor, vanishing sickness was one of the "Magical Bugs" dealt with on the second floor and sufferers of "uncontrollable giggling" needed to attend the third floor "Potion and Plant Poisoning" section.
6. In 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince', the muggle Prime Minister was left bemused by the distinctly peculiar behaviour of one of his junior ministers, Herbert Chorley. The man ended up being admitted to St. Mungo's suffering from the effects of the botched application of which curse?

Answer: Imperius Curse

Apparently the poorly executed Imperius Curse did not have the desired effect on poor old Herbert Chorley. The spell, one of the three known as the Unforgiveable Curses, was intended to force the subject to act according to the will of the caster - however, it seems unlikely that Chorley's unknown attacker actually ordered him do impressions of a duck.

Although the manner by which this curse backfired appeared to be humorous, it actually turned out to be highly dangerous for the staff of St. Mungo's when Chorley suddenly attempted to strangle them to death. It's probably fair to say that the latter act bore more resemblance to the intended command than his previous episodes of going quackers.

Petrificus Totalus was the full body-bind curse that prevented its victims from any form of movement; the Tongue-Tying curse was used by the Order to prevent Severus Snape from informing Lord Voldemort of the location of 12 Grimmauld Place; and Sectumsempra was invented by Snape to cause cuts and slashes.
7. When Arthur Weasley was admitted to St. Mungo's 'Dangerous' Dai Llewellyn ward for serious bites in 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix' he ended up sharing his room with a young wizard who was struggling to cope with the permanent effects of an attack by what type of magical being?

Answer: Werewolf

In the 'Harry Potter' novels, when a person was bitten by a transformed werewolf at full moon they also became infected by the condition. However, in addition to suffering the physical effects of this transformation, they also ended up suffering at the hands of wizarding society. Werewolves tended to be treated with mistrust and suspicion and were often generally ostracised and discriminated against.

Wizarding society's view of werewolves was highlighted when Remus Lupin was exposed as a werewolf in 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'. His position as the professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry became untenable and in later novels it became clear that he had struggled to find any form of magical employment because of his condition. It also impacted on his family life as he was reluctant to marry Tonks and unhappy at the prospect of becoming a father because he did not want his wife and child to have to carry the stigma of being related to a werewolf.
8. In 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix', Professor McGonagall had to spend several weeks in St. Mungo's being treated for the effects of being hit by four simultaneously cast stunning spells. Who was she attempting to defend when she was attacked?

Answer: Hagrid

Late one night, while Harry Potter and the other fifth-years were taking their Astronomy O.W.L. examinations, Dolores Umbridge and five ministry officials had headed down to Hagrid's hut. Since the reader viewed the scene from Harry's point of view on the Astronomy Tower, the exact events weren't given in full, but clearly their intention was to remove Hagrid from Hogwarts and Hagrid had refused to go quietly. The six of them attacked Hagrid with stunning spells and Professor Minerva McGonagall came running out of the castle to his defence, only to be hit in the chest with four stunning spells herself. Madam Pomfrey later told Harry Potter that, given McGonagall's age, "It's a wonder they didn't kill her."

McGonagall was able to return to Hogwarts shortly before the end of the school year - but was unfortunately absent at the key point when Harry needed a member of the Order of the Phoenix on hand to prevent him from falling into Lord Voldemort's trap at the Ministry of the Magic.
9. Katie Bell, star chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team, had to be hospitalised at St. Mungo's in 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' after she inadvertently touched a cursed necklace in Hogsmeade. Who was the intended victim of the curse?

Answer: Albus Dumbledore

Sending a cursed necklace to Albus Dumbledore was the first of two rather desperate schemes to kill the Headmaster of Hogwarts. Draco Malfoy had been inducted as a Death Eater and before the school year began Lord Voldemort had given him the task of murdering Dumbledore. His main plan was to repair the school's broken Vanishing Cabinet, grant his fellow Death Eaters access to Hogwarts and use the ensuing chaos as an opportunity to corner Dumbledore. However, mending the Vanishing Cabinet proved much harder than Malfoy expected and his attempts to send Dumbledore both a cursed necklace and a poisoned bottle of mead (using an Imperiused Madam Rosmerta) were symbolic of his growing desperation.

As it turned out, it was two of Malfoy's fellow pupils that were injured - Katie Bell was cursed when she touched the necklace and Ron Weasley drank the poisoned mead. Ron was saved by Harry Potter when he forced him to swallow a bezoar, but Katie spent months in St. Mungo's before she recovered sufficiently to return to school.
10. When an Auror named Dawlish was sent to kidnap an elderly witch in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', he probably didn't expect to meet much resistance. However, she managed to escape and consigned Dawlish to St Mungo's in the process. Who was this plucky grandmother?

Answer: Augusta Longbottom

The reader learned about Augusta Longbottom's daring escape from Dawlish when her grandson, Neville, brought Harry, Ron and Hermione into the Room of Requirement via the tunnel from the Hog's Head. Neville and the remaining members of Dumbledore's Army had worked to undermine the Death Eaters' control over Hogwarts and the plan to kidnap his grandmother was aimed at forcing his good behaviour at school. The plan was the reverse of a tactic they had used previously with some success - kidnapping children to ensure the compliance of their parents, for example the capture and imprisonment of Luna Lovegood to stop her father printing pro-Harry Potter messages in his magazine, 'The Quibbler'.

Eileen Prince was Severus Snape's mother; Walburga Black, who appeared in the series as a particularly vocal portrait, was the mother of Sirius and Regulus Black; and Muriel was Molly Weasley's elderly aunt whose surname was never mentioned (Prewett was Molly's maiden name).
