The Harry Potter The franchise comes with many mysteries, many of which are solved throughout the storytelling, such as the identity of the Half-Blood Prince, the true creators of the Marauders Map, and who opened the Chamber of Secrets. But there are still some that left fans scratching their heads and they decided to come together to see if they can figure it out.
In the prisoner of azkaban, Harry receives an anonymous package containing the latest model of broomstick, the Firebolt. Although the gift was sent anonymously, Harry and his friends were pretty sure it was from his godfather, Sirius Black, with Hermione even pointing it out to McGonagall to make sure it was safe to use (remember you, the books are different from the movies and the present came at Christmas before they knew Sirius was innocent). Sirius later said that the high-end broom was “thirteen birthday gifts from your godfather.”
This gift caused a reader to think back to another time Harry received an anonymous broom in the mail, though we never knew exactly how it was arranged. In the first book, the Philosophical Stone, Harry, although he has only known the world of magic for a few months, turns out to be a very talented Quidditch player. His talent is noticed by the head of Gryffindor, Professor McGonagall, who breaks the rules stating that the first years cannot own their own broom or compete, to ensure that Harry can join Gryffindor quidditch.
After his admission to the team, Harry is given a Nimbus 2000, the best model then on the market, delivered to him over breakfast, and although many are suspicious, it is never made clear who it is. bought exactly. A reader took to Reddit for clarification.
While many know exactly who was responsible for the giveaway, others dig deeper into exactly how the broom was paid for. This user believes McGonagall bought the broom out of guilt for leaving it with the Dursleys and out of love for her parents.
Dumbledore may also have played a role.
Her motives weren’t entirely pure – this user thinks her desire to kick Slytherin’s ass was also a factor.
Many believe the broom was bought with Harry’s money.
Remember, Harry is legitimately rich.
This theory is pretty cool, with Harry acting as an unofficial influencer for the brand.
Some people think McGonagall paid for the broom out of pocket.
The Harry Potter Wiki Fandom page states that it was McGonagall who arranged for Harry to receive the broom, but even then there is no clear evidence of how this broom was obtained. So, unfortunately for these fans, it’s a Harry Potter mystery that remains unsolved.
