Harry Potter is an iconic figure in the world of fantasy and fiction, and he is widely known for his bravery and courage. However, in 1997-1998, he was branded as Undesirable No. 1 by the Ministry of Magic, making him the most wanted wizard in the wizarding world.

The reason for this was his involvement in the murder of Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Dumbledore was killed by Severus Snape, but Harry was accused of being an accomplice. This was due to the fact that Harry had been seen with Snape shortly before the murder, and he had also been seen leaving the scene of the crime.

As a result, the Ministry of Magic issued a warrant for Harry’s arrest, and he was declared Undesirable No. 1. This meant that he was wanted by the government and was to be apprehended on sight. He was also placed under the surveillance of the Aurors, the Ministry’s elite group of magical law enforcement officers.

Harry was able to evade capture for a while, but eventually he was apprehended and taken into custody. He was then put on trial for his alleged involvement in Dumbledore’s murder. Fortunately, he was able to prove his innocence and was eventually acquitted of all charges.

Despite being cleared of all charges, Harry Potter’s status as Undesirable No. 1 remains a dark mark on his record. It is a reminder of the danger he faced and the lengths he had to go to in order to prove his innocence. It is also a reminder of the power of the Ministry of Magic and the lengths they will go to in order to enforce their laws.
