|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
In 1422, a large white rabbit was spotted by Muggles crossing the English Channel in a cauldron with a sail fitted to it. A rabbit of that description later became a trusted advisor at the court of King Henry VI — a fact that contributed to the Muggle King's reputation for mental instability. While this has never been proven by authorities on History of Magic, it is believed this rabbit was the Animagus form of Lisette de Lapin, a famous French sorceress who had been, earlier that same year, convicted of witchcraft in Paris, but had vanished from her prison cell the night before she was due to be executed.
