If you remember reading or watching the Harry Potter series, the spell was first used in the “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” Movie, of the third year.
Yes, this was the time when Bugbeak was almost left to get slaughtered, but thanks to our lovely trio of Harry, Hermione, and Ronald to save the precious bird.
So, in the third year, Remus Lupin taught Harry to cast this spell. However, when things went south in the fifth year and Dumbledore’s army was formed, the spell became open to all.
In the time when there was an awakening of the one who must-not-be-named, every Gryffindor was taught how to cast the “Expecto Patronum” spell.
That is where you would have noticed that everyone was able to summon a different Patronus like Hermione got a rabbit. Well, do you remember what is Harry Potter’s Patronus? Yes, it is the Stag with fancy horns!
