Transylvania is a historical region in Eastern Europe. Today, it is part of Romania. It would seem in the wizarding world, Transylvania is an independent country from the country of Romania.

History

Not much is known about Transylvania's association with the Muggle world, but it does have its own Quidditch team. The Transylvanian National Quidditch team is known for having been one of the finalists in the first-ever Quidditch World Cup and more recently, in the 1994 World Cup, has beat the English National Quidditch team 390 to 10. However, they did not make it to the finals that year.[1]

While attempting to break-in to Gringotts Wizarding Bank in 1998, Ronald Weasley went under the assumed identity of a Transylvanian wizard named "Dragomir Despard".[2]
