The Crimean War was a Muggle military conflict fought from 1853 to 1856, between Russia and an alliance of France, Britain, the Ottoman Empire and Sardinia, and which immediate cause involved the rights of Christian minorities in the Holy Land.[1]

Evangeline Orpington, Minister for Magic of Britain from 1849 to 1855, is believed to have intervened magically in the Crimean War, even though said intervention would have been illegal.[2]
