The Black Death is the name of a mass outbreak of the plague that spread throughout Europe during the Middle Ages, peaking in the mid-14th century.

During this period, Nicholas Malfoy is believed to have killed many Muggle tenants, disguising their deaths as plague victims. If this is true, it has never been proven, as he escaped censure by the Wizard's Council.[1]
