Though they met later in life than Godric and Salazar, Rowena and Helga were possibly the closest of the four founders. In many ways they fulfilled each other – one the heart and the other the mind. Working together to build Hogwarts, they came to rely upon one another. Rowena, though fiercely independent and sometimes proud, valued Helga’s counsel above all others. And Helga had no greater champion after boldly deciding to go against her friends and “teach the lot”. When Helena ran away, it was Helga that comforted Rowena in her grief.
THE SWORD OF GRYFFINDOR | noun
The Sword of Gryffindor was a goblin-made sword owned by the famed wizard Godric Gryffindor, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Fashioned from pure silver, it is inset with rubies, the stone that represents Gryffindor in the hour-glasses that count the house points at Hogwarts. Godric Gryffindor’s name is engraved just beneath the hilt. It is believed that only true Gryffindors of pure, courageous heart could summon the sword and wield it.

HARRY POTTER HISTORY MEME: one item [1/1] → Rowena Ravenclaw’s Diadem
"I stole the diadem. I sought to make myself cleverer, more important than my mother. I ran away with it. My mother, they say, never admitted that the diadem was gone, but pretended that she had it still. She concealed her loss, my dreadful betrayal, even from the other founders of Hogwarts."
"What do you dream about, Slytherin?
Her. Her lips. Her hands. Her hair. Her skin. Her voice ringing through stone halls. Halls he built.
"Nothing. I dream of nothing."
