MagicCon 4 | Vortrag | Ein magischer Stammbaum | by Demiguys

“Molly and I are cousins by marriage and Arthur’s something like my second cousin once removed.”

That’s how Sirius Black describes the bloodlines of the Purebloods. But what does that mean exactly? Who are the people in between, and are there other such relationships? Who would have thought, for example, that you could find the average person Vernon Dursley and the most unpopular headmaster of Hogwarts Phineas Nigellus Black on a family tree?

In our talk A magical family tree on MagicCon 7 we will explain the background stories, family relationships and connections between J.K. Rowling’s characters. The basis for this is a family tree with over one hundred people from the magical and Muggle world with the Black family tree as its core, extended by the Harry Potter books and Pottermore (Wizarding World). We knock the dust off the wallpaper in Grimmauldplace and try to reduce the confusion about the connections of Molly, Arthur and Sirius among others in all our heads. Maybe some more unexpected relations will come to light.

Lecturer: Demiguys
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
Under the name Demiguys hide the two Ravenclaw sisters Sina and Julia Brandkamp. Already very early the two have developed a great love for fantasy. They then lost their hearts hopelessly to Harry Potter.

The fact of being sisters has many advantages here. Among them, not only access to twice the amount of books (which, when they moved out, meant that the two of them now own four editions of the Harry Potter series between them), but also the opportunity to carry out a wide variety of projects. These include memorizing the "Talking Hat" songs, prophecies and spells from the Harry Potter books, listing and sorting all known spells from the universe, and turning the basement into a paradise for all fantasy nerds. The biggest project so far is the family tree of the Harry Potter world. In the Muggle world, Sina and Julia study Chemistry and International Relations.
