MURDER IN THE BATHROOM!” Snape rushes in, and performs a spell to save Malfoy’s life.

Commentary

Notes

These maps takes the details from the books into account as well as the standard structure and architecture of castles. While not canon, this map is certainly one of the most well-researched and historically accurate blueprints of Hogwarts that anyone could create. The sixth floor was a mystery until the release of Half-Blood Prince. Until then, nothing had ever been mentioned about what might be on that floor.
