Harry Potter: 10 Terrible Acts Committed By Hogwarts Professors
9. Sybill Trelawney – Falsely Told Students They Were Going To Die
Professor Trelawney is a fraud, and according to Dumbledore, she’s only made two genuine predictions in her entire life.
Whenever she has a new class to teach, Trelawney predicts that one of the students will soon meet their end. In The Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry becomes the latest victim of her attention-seeking scheme, and all of the class fall for it except Hermione.
Had it not been for Professor McGonagall – who later revealed Trelawney’s habit of falsely predicting death – Harry would have spent his third year convinced he was going to die at any moment.
The worst part of Trelawney’s scheme is that she doesn’t care about the mental stability of her students and is perfectly willing to traumatise them for the sake of drama.
