Josefina Calderon was a 17th-century Mexican witch and Healer who became the wife of Chadwick Boot, one of the founders of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]

The couple established the Calderon-Boot family, which remains one of America's most prominent wizarding families today.[1]


Josefina is a Spanish name meaning "made bigger by god".[citation needed]

While Calderón is a real surname, it was probably picked because of its similarity with "caldero", meaning "cauldron".[citation needed]
