Madam Chang (b. 7 September)[1] was a British witch,[2] employee of the British Ministry of Magic, and the mother of Cho Chang.


Madam Chang's daughter Cho

Her birthday was 7 September.[1] Cho remembered this fact at the last minute in 1995 and rushed to the Owlery at Hogwarts to send her mother a gift.[4]

Madam Chang (like her husband) wanted her daughter to not get on Dolores Umbridge's bad side in her sixth year. However, Cho went against their wishes and joined Dumbledore's Army.[5] Umbridge later threatened to fire Madam Chang because of her daughter's involvement in the DA.[2]
