Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 J. K. Rowling stated at the Edinburgh Book Festival on 15 August 2004 (source) that all portraits at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are of deceased individuals. Thus, Aragon must have died sometime in or before 1995, given his portrait's appearance in the Headmaster's office in the LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4.

  9. He appears in a portrait in Hogsmeade most likely because he had fled from his portrait at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry during the Battle.
