Bridging the border between southeastern Europe and the Middle East, Turkey (and the former Ottoman Empire) has found itself literally and figuratively caught in the middle of a number of large events throughout history, though the country as it currently stands has existed for less than a century.

Turkey’s national Quidditch team was defeated by England in a match in the early 1980s, thanks in part to a splendid performance by Ludo Bagman. We know this because, when Harry visited Bagman’s trial for Death Eater activity in the Pensieve, Ludo was congratulated on his “splendid performance” by one of the witches in the Wizengamot (GF30).
