So it’s Thursday, time for another Harry Potter post. This time it’s not a flaw or a similarity it’s just facts and some observations. I hope you like it.
It’s just a little about each of the founders then some observations.
Let’s start with Godric Gryffindor. The school was founded in medieval times and was founded by four people. His birthplace became known as Godric’s Hollow, which is where Harry was born and where the snake attacks Harry and Hermione in book 7. Godric was the one who made the sorting hat to help choose which students should be in each house.
Rowena Ravenclaw – was Scottish and smart and creative.
Helga Hufflepuff – Was Welsh and thought everyone deserved to be taught magic.
Salazar Slytherin – Did not want to teach people who were not born into magical families. He left Hogwarts when no-one else would agree to stop letting in non pure-bloods.
They each had a saying that showed their preference for which students should be allowed into Hogwarts.
Gryffindor – “We’ll teach all those with brave deeds to their name”
Ravenclaw – “wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.”
Hufflepuff – “I’d teach the lot and teach them just the same.”
Slytherin – “We’ll teach just those whose ancestry’s purest.”
Each had an item that belonged to them, that was important in the books, either as a horcrux or an item that can destroy horcruxes.
Gryffindor – the sword that helped Harry kill the Baskalisk, and killed the snake (one of the horcruxes).
Ravenclaw – The lost diadem, which was a horcrux and was destroyed by the fiend fire in the room of requirement.
Hufflepuff – The cup that was horcrux, found the Bellatrix’s vault and destroyed by the sword of Gryffindor.
Slytherin – The ring that was a horcrux and destroyed Dumbledore’s hand. The locket it as well, which was destroyed by he sword of Gryffindor.
Okay, so not too much information on each, didn’t want to bog you all down with it. The reason I decided to write about this was to show similarities in all the founders that could only happen in a story.
All the founders names are alliterations. Both their first name and last name start with the same letter. It would never happen in real life, but it is nice and neat I like it. Each of the founders had an object that either helped Voldemort by being turned into a horcrux or helped destroy them. Slytherin had two objects that were used. Gryffindor’s sword was used to destroy two hocruxes.
No doubt I will think of more later, but I am off work ill just now and my brain has stopped working. Sorry so next week if I think of more I will put it in my next Harry Potter post.
Until next time bookworms.
