Ravenclaw is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Students that are chosen to be in the House of Ravenclaw by the Sorting Hat tend to show traits such as intelligence and wit, as well as individuality. The emblem can be found on the cloaks of all Ravenclaw students, and the colours are also displayed on their scarves. In the films, the Ravenclaw colours are blue and silver rather than blue and bronze.


[edit] Founder

The school was founded by four witches and wizards, and the wizard that created the house under the Ravenclaw name was Rowena Ravenclaw. Rowena was introduced by the Sorting Hat as "fair Ravenclaw from Glen." Rowena devised the moving staircases and was good friends with Helga Hufflepuff.

[edit] History

Ravenclaw have had many intelligent students at the house. Not many of the students of Ravenclaw were known after leaving Hogwarts to join Voldemort.

[edit] The Common Room

The common room is located in one of the castles' towers. It is a circular room with arched windows. There is a white marble statue of Rowena Ravenclaw sitting next to the door that leads to the dormitories. Unlike other common rooms, there is no password to enter; instead, there is a bronze eagle shaped knocker that asks a riddle. The correct answer allows entry, which this means that someone with enough intellect could enter.

[edit] Quidditch Team

Ravenclaw has their own Quidditch team, and they take on the challenge to win the Quidditch Cup. The team robes are a blue colour with silver edging and its crest on the left.
