Ravenclaw House

"Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure." - Rowena Ravenclaw

Ravenclaw is one of the four houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was founded by the medieval witch Rowena Ravenclaw. Students sorted into this House by the Sorting Hat are characterised by their wit, learning, and wisdom - hence Rowena's quote. The house ghost is The Grey Lady, house colours are blue and bronze and the emblematic animal symbol is an eagle. Yes, we know, it is a raven in the films...

"Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind." - The Sorting Hat
