    Headmaster During 1690's

    Does anyone know who the Hogwarts headmaster was during the 1690's? I've tried to look it up myself, but to no avail. Does anyone know the answer to this question?

    There is no known canon headmaster for that time as we know but there are two headmasters that have been mentioned in the books who have no dates attached to them so you could either use one of them or create an OC I would think.

    Everard Former headmaster of Hogwarts whose portrait now hangs in the headmaster's office. Everard is particularly famous and as a result his portrait hangs in many famous wizarding institutions, including the Ministry of Magic. Everard is a sallow-faced wizard with a short black fringe (OP22).

    Note: 'Everard' is probably a first name, since Dumbledore refers to other former Headmasters by their first names ('Phineas,' 'Dilys').
    Fortescue, Dexter Red-nosed, corpulent wizard. Fortescue was at one time a Headmaster of Hogwarts. His portrait hangs in the Headmaster's office (OP27).

    Here, there and everywhere
    As Lily Windsor says, we don't know who was headmaster then. You've got the two briefly mentioned former Headmasters; Everard and Dexter Fortescue (I've gone with him for my fic set in 1670s). Dilys Derwent was at Hogwarts in the 1700s, so it can't be her, and Phineas Nigellus was in the 1800s.

    You could also look up the scenes in the books where Dumbledore's talking to the portraits of the former Head's (I think it's in OoTP mainly) to get a few descriptions of likely candidates and create an OC round that.

    Thank you very much! I think this thread has served its purpose, so it can be locked and graved now, if the mods would be so kind.
