History

Umbridge-2-

Dolores Umbridge, the only Head of the Commission

On 1 August, 1997, Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters took over the Ministry of Magic. Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour was tortured and then killed, the Imperius Cursed Pius Thicknesse was installed as a puppet in his place, and the Death Eaters began a campaign against their enemies, notably Muggle-borns. They were ordered to register with the Muggle-Born Registration Commission, which convicted them of stealing magic from "real" wizards and witches (pure-bloods) and imprisoned them in Azkaban, though the entire trial was unfair and Muggle-borns were punished whether the evidence proved them guilty or not. Some were threatened with the Dementor's Kiss, some were imprisoned, and some were stripped of their wands and jobs, and reduced to being street beggars. Those who refused to register, such as Ted Tonks, were pursued by Snatchers, sometimes fatally. Dolores Umbridge, in her position as the Head of this department, enjoyed her newfound authority and sadistically tormented the many Muggle-borns; she assigned many of her subordinates to produce anti-Muggle pamphlets in an autonomous manner, and seemed rather unpopular due to her tyrannical and sadistic manner.

The position was eliminated after Voldemort was killed by Harry Potter and the Commission was disbanded in May of 1998, its Head arrested, trialled and jailed in Azkaban for crimes against Muggle-borns, some of whom did not survive the ordeals of the prison themselves.[1]
