Quiz: Which Hogwarts Founder are you?

So. You know if you’re like Luna or Hermione, Draco or Ron – but where would we be with the Founders of Hogwarts?

Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw founded Hogwarts over 1000 years ago and people are still battling over the best House.

Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw were four of the great witches and wizards of the 10th Century and were great great friends. But the founding of Hogwarts caused tension between Gryffindor and Slytherin when Slytherin wanted to prevent muggleborns from attending the school.

VOTE: Which Harry Potter villain do you hate the most?

Um… Did anyone notice Newt Scamander’s cameo in the original Harry Potter films? We sure didn’t!

They each founded their own house, favouring traits that they were celebrated for: Gryffindor’s bravery, Slytherin’s cunning, Ravenclaw’s intelligence and Hufflepuff’s loyalty and acceptance. The Sorting Hat takes these qualities into considering when Sorting every First Year than comes to Hogwarts on September 1st.

  1. I always thought of myself as more of a Hufflepuff, but I guess I do have some reckless Gryffindor-esque qualities. I wonder if it’s possible to be in a different house but be more like one founder?

  2. Godric Gryffindor – I always had myself down as more as a Slytherin girl, but then again, I’d be annoyed if someone was trying to prevent people from attending school. As if anyone would do that, hiss!
