#TriviaTuesday - How Well Do You Know Harry Potter?
In honor of Harry Potter — and with thanks to “The Ultimate Unofficial Harry Potter Trivia Book”(*), today’s trivia source, we ask:
“Which Harry Potter character is named after author J.K. Rowling’s grandfather?”
1. Seamus Finnigan
2. Ernie Macmillan
3. Anthony Goldstein
4. Roger Davies
“Ernie Macmillan was the name of J.K. Rowling’s grandfather. As a tribute to him, J.K. Rowling decided to include his name and assigned it to a character in the series.” (*)
