Derek: "It says she was burned at the stake 118 times. Even she didn't enjoy it as much as that."
Harry Potter: "Who would?"
Derek on Wendelin the Weird's enjoyment of being burned at the stake[src]

The Misprinted Wendolyn card was a considerably rare misprinted Chocolate Frog Card of Wendelin the Weird.[1] It listed that she had herself burned at the stake one hundred and eighteen times, instead of the correct forty-seven.

The Misprint

"Wendolyn the Weird liked burning at the stake so much she arranged to be lit up 118 times."
Folio Magi[src]


In 1992, Derek of the Wizard Card Collectors' Club at Hogwarts owned one of these cards. He traded it at the Trading Card Shop with Harry Potter with a Football card. Later, during the 1992-1993 school year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter traded this card to Wendelin the Weird's portrait on the Sixth floor, in return for a rare baby spider.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • According to Harry's copy of A History of Magic in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Wendelin was burned at least forty-seven times. However, according to her card in the video games, it states she was only burned fourteen times, making this a real life case of a misprinting of Wendelin the Weird's card. The Timeline of the Wizarding World given on Pottermore reinforces that Wendelin was burned exactly forty-seven times.
