After her graduation from Hogwarts School, Laverne de Montmorency presumably studied further into Potion-making, becoming an accomplished potioneer and an expert in Love Potions. She became famous for her invention of many such potions.[2]

Death and post-mortemEdit

Ms. de Montmorency died in 1893, aged around 70. In her honour, her invention of many Love Potions was recorded on a Chocolate Frog Card.[2]

On 1 September, 1991, Prefect Robert Hilliard welcomed the Ravenclaw first years to Ravenclaw Tower with a short speech in which he mentioned potioneer Laverne de Montmorency as one of the many notable Hogwarts students who had been Sorted, like them, into Ravenclaw.[1]
