The Triwizard Tournament is a deadly wizarding competition in which three champions compete[1]. It was established in the thirteenth century as a friendly contest between the three largest schools of magic in Europe: Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang[1]. The tournament was hosted every five years, a different school hosting it each time, and one champion representing each school, until the death toll got too high[1]. Though several attempts were made over intervening centuries to reinstate the tournament, it was only in 1994 that Bartemius Crouch, Ludo Bagman, Albus Dumbledore, Igor Karkaroff and Olympe Maxime succeeded[1].
