Rowena Ravenclaw

Rowena RavenclawCaution: Spoilers from Deathly Hallows ahead. Do not read if you haven’t read the book. You have been warned.

“Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.”                                                                                                                                                 -Rowena Ravenclaw

Rowena Ravenclaw was born in Scotland sometime in the 10th century. She became close friends with Helga Hufflepuff and Godric Gryffindor, both of whom where also founders of Hogwarts. Her house is named after her (Ravenclaw) and values wit, learning and creativity. Ravenclaw named Hogwarts and picked it’s location. She even designed the floor plan!

One of the things Ravenclaw is known for, besides being a Hogwarts founder, is her diadem. A diadem is a type of crown, or tiara. Ravenclaw’s was known to “enhance the wearer’s wisdom”. In other words, it made the person wearing it smarter. Ravenclaw most likely enchanted the diadem herself.

The only known relation Ravenclaw had was her daughter, Helena Ravenclaw. Helena grew jealous of her mother’s wisdom and popularity, and stole the diadem. Ravenclaw was heartbroken by the betrayal and pretended she still had the diadem. When Ravenclaw fell fatally ill, she wanted to see her daughter one more time. She sent a baron that was in love with Helena to find her. He tracked her down in a forest in Albania. Helena hid the diadem in a hollow tree when she heard him coming. When Helena refused to go with the baron, he went into a rage and stabbed her. Realizing what he had just done, the man stabbed himself. That man is Slytherin’s house ghost, the Bloody Baron. Helena became the ghost of Ravenclaw tower, otherwise known as The Grey Lady. Harry meets The Grey Lady in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, during the Battle of Hogwarts.

Ravenclaw died sometime in the 11th century without ever seeing her daughter again. Legend says she died of a broken heart because Helena stole her diadem. Ravenclaw was the first Hogwarts founder to die.

The story is both sad and fascinating. That is one of the reasons I chose to do Rowena Ravenclaw first. I hope you enjoyed this post and have learned something, because learning is something Ravenclaw valued. 😉
