Hogwarts years (1892–1899)
Dumbledore began attending Hogwarts in the autumn of 1892 and was Sorted into Gryffindor house.
Often considered the least desirable of all the sorting options, here are some reasons why Hufflepuff house is the worst.
Hufflepuffs are loyal to their morals and their friends right till the bitter end. They often get stereotyped as not having a lot of 'strong' traits but in this regard, they are actually the strongest of all the houses.
1 Helga Hufflepuff
It should come as no surprise, but the most powerful and legendary Hufflepuff of all time is the titular lass herself, Helga Hufflepuff.
Hermione Granger didn't go to Ravenclaw because she valued courage and bravery over knowledge. She also expressed that Gryffindor was the best House in Hogwarts. Besides, the Sorting Hat prioritizes what type of qualities the students value rather than what they have.
The most famous Slytherin in Harry Potter is Salazar Slytherin, one of the four founders of Hogwarts. He was also known as one of the most brilliant wizards of his generation. Salazar was skilled in Parseltongue and crafted his personal wand out of snakewood and a basilisk horn.
Minerva McGonagall became headmistress of Hogwarts.
"Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster. McGonagall was really getting on a bit."
In a Hatstall, the Sorting Hat will take the student's personal preference into account (Known Hatstalls include Professor McGonagall and Peter Pettigrew). However, the author has never suggested that a person could be in two Houses simultaneously…
The whole reason of sorting is to show which side of your personality you want to act on most. If you have qualities of Gryffindor and Slytherin, but you care more about being brave than ambitious, choose Gryffindor. If you're intelligent and loyal, but you care more for intelligence, choose Ravenclaw.
While plenty of respondents were sorted into Gryffindor (Harry Potter's House) or Slytherin (home to many of the books' budding villains), a majority were in either Ravenclaw (home to the studious and industrious) or Hufflepuff (the House of humility and diversity). This is not surprising.
Instead of a password, a conundrum was posed: Which came first, the phoenix or the flame? Answer: A circle has no beginning.
And, naturally, J.K. Rowling herself is a Gryffindor.
Rowling revealed her house during a livestream in 2012.
Ravenclaw. "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure"
At Hogwarts, rather than be sorted into Slytherin like the rest of his family, Sirius was placed in Gryffindor. In contrast to his home life, Sirius greatly enjoyed life at Hogwarts, where he was inseparable from his best friend, James Potter.
Harry Potter was nearly sorted into Slytherin, but because he asked not to be, he was placed in Gryffindor instead.
The reason Ron Weasley wasn't sorted in Hufflepuff house is because he is a true Gryffindor to his core. While he has seasons of doubt and fear, he is also courageous, bold, and heroic. He genuinely cares for others and stands up for them when necessary.
