"Rowle was succeeded by Perseus Parkinson, who was likewise pro-Azkaban."
—Perseus' views as Minister for Magic[src]
Minister Perseus Parkinson was British Minister for Magic from 1726 to 1733.


He attempted to pass a bill making it illegal to marry a Muggle. However, in doing so, he misread the public mood; the wizarding public was tired of anti-Muggle sentiment and wanted peace. Parkinson was therefore voted out during the next election for Minister.[2]
