Hmmm….maybe Ravenclaw’s heart broken by the death of her daughter or because of the fact that her own daughter stole her diadem from her???

Avatar Image says:

Ah, yes, and a very nice tiara it is… Shame on the Grey Lady for stealing it.

I thought she didn’t know who stole her diadem?

Avatar Image says:

We knew it would be Ravenclaw, didn’t we?! I wonder how long Jo’s going to keep updating the wizard of the month for? Once things like that stop we’ll really know it’s over…

Avatar Image says:

Wooot!!!! Now, was the “broken heart” a result of her daughter, or her daughter’s father…..?

Wow….even post-DH my mind still reverts to shipping….heeheehee….

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JO AND HARRY!!! (I made carrot cake for you today, it was yummy:)

Avatar Image says:

wow she is pretty…love that diadem ms ravenclaw!

Avatar Image says:

Hedwig—The broken heart was from her daughter’s betrayal… It’s in the book.

Is the avatar feature working?

Rowena was a very beautiful witch! I am so proud to be Ravenclaw and be born in August right now lol! GO RAVENCLAW! WOOO! (Happy Birthday Jo&Harry)

Avatar Image says:

Oh, Jo, you lovely genius… I can’t believe your attention to detail spans all the way to your wizard of the month selection. You never cease to amaze me!

Avatar Image says:

As a proud Ravenclaw I honor Rowena on this first day of August. ;D

Avatar Image says:

nice. love the diadem…

no clues as to who broke her heart… jo’s still giving us mysteries even after the series is over!

Congratulations to everyone from Ravenclaw! Your founder is the Wizard of the Month! Thank you to Rowena Ravenclaw for her tremendous contribution to our magnificent school Hogwarts!

Avatar Image says:

padfootrocksmysocks, I think it’s supposed to be her daughter since she stole her mother’s diadem, ran away, and refused to see Rowena on her death bed. :)

Avatar Image says:

oh, i wonder how much longer jo will do this. i mean when she’s gone on and is writing other things i’m sure she won’t still have a monthly HP wizard on her website. that will be a sad day when she stops updating with things like this though… :’(

Avatar Image says:

honestly i thought that she’d have a picture of harry and have him be the last wizard of the month. i hadn’t realized that ravenclaw wasn’t already honored. if she doesn’t stop soon i think she might thru the seventh movie. but i wouldn’t count on it. i am really looking forward to the encyclopedia. finally someone besides hermione will read hogwarts: a history. ;0)

Avatar Image says:

Well, Jo said that Ravenclaw would have its day, and it certainly did. Rowena Ravenclaw is a very beautiful founder and the diadem is wonderful.

meeee, I am just speculating, but she did say that the trio would eventually be on Famous Wizard Cards and that Ron would really be chuffed by it.

Therefore, I suspect that the next group she will go through will be the Order of the Phoenix, Snape (he deserves one), the Marauders (minus Peter), Dumbledore’s Army, and the Trio. I suspect that Harry will be the last one she does. If she does all of those, we have a lot to look forward to, at least I hope so.

Ah, so the Chocolate Frog cards have it wrong when they show Rowena as a redhead!

Avatar Image says:

Whoa, she’s hot! Much different than what I expected! =)

Avatar Image says:

Is it just me or does she kind of look like Jo with dark hair? I dont think she intended that and that it was just the website designers. Any thoughts?

As for Harry being the last Wizard of the Month…sniff sniff…how sad would that be! it would truly mean that the era of harry potter is over.

Avatar Image says:

Hey carolyn I thought that too! Rowena Does look like a dark Jo! It would be a shame if her broken heart was because she lost her diadem as her daughter said Rowena never knew she’d take it.

Avatar Image says:

Ravenclaw is a real beauty isn’t she? I suppose with a name containing raven in it she would have black hair.

Avatar Image says:

i think she looks a bit like jo too, thats funny *s

Avatar Image says:

Woo!! A dark-haird witch that NICE for a change :) I finally have someone noble to dress as, instead of someone in a toilet or someone who likes to torture people into insanity :-D

Avatar Image says:

chocolateisnotforbreakfast, cho chang and the patil twins have black hair too!

It was definitely her daughter who broke her heart. The Grey Lady is a nasty piece of work. Poor Ravenclaw.

Avatar Image says:

Blimey, TLC, you forgot Jo and Harry’s birthdays! Naughty you!

Avatar Image says:

How exciting!

I love the way that the Diadem is elegantly placed on her head. Hmm… I wonder if they will cast someone as Rowena Ravenclaw in some sort of flashback for the Deathly Hallows film?

I also heard that Ian McNeice will portray Horace Slughorn in the Half Blood Prince film. Does anyone from Leaky know if this is true?

Avatar Image says:

Tistytosty but they Didn’t!

Avatar Image says:

look at the post before this one..

Well, I’m proud to be Ravenclaw! (I can’t believe I’m the first one to say this)

“Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure”

Go Ravenclaw!

Avatar Image says:

Happy Birthday Rowena Ravenclaw! I knew that all four Howgwarts Founders would be on the site! I think she had a broken heart because her daughter stole the diadem!

Avatar Image says:

’’Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure’‘

Avatar Image says:

Hi! I’ m Magda- I’ m Polish. I love “Harry Potter” – they are great! I’ m wait for Polish Edditions “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” ! I think it’s so great too!

Avatar Image says:

Did you guys at Leaky all forget about the Deathly Hallows Predictions exam?

Avatar Image says:

cool!

Avatar Image says:

she looks beautiful!

Avatar Image says:

I love it!!!

She is really gorgeous, the diadem is lovely (specially when it has my fave line “Wit beyond measure….”) and it totally makes me proud to be a Ravenclaw!

Avatar Image says:

Wow!! she was so beautiful..shame on the Grey Lady for stealing that Diadem and breaking her mother’s heart..nice WotM!

Avatar Image says:

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw If you’ve a ready mind Where those of wit and learning Will always find their kind!

Avatar Image says:

Ravenclaw is very beautiful. I loved how we get to know more about her in the last book, it was very interesting.

So do you think Jo will stop putting wizards of the month? why? she has a great imagination and she has created so many wizards, it would be great if we could continue seeing them many more years. :)

Avatar Image says:

All the other Founders looked similarly to how I imagined, but Rowena looks more like how I imagine Eileen Prince (but less sullen looking). I just figured Rowena would be blonde from the Sorting Hat’s description in the books, something to do with being “fair”. And the bright red lipstick is a bit silly.

Avatar Image says:

Is there anyway to see the past wizard and witches of the month? I missed Hufflepuff and Gryffindor and am curious as to what they looks like.

Avatar Image says:

Pudell,

To be fair can also mean Lady like, to be graceful…though I agree with the lipstick.

Avatar Image says:

My first comment on this site…

Well, of course Rowena is Jo. The minute I opened it I was flabergasted! What a funny touch. Such an amazing woman.

Has anyone else noticed that her door is open? I don’t remember seeing it mentioned anywhere, but there are only MILLIONS (it seems) of comments and postings.

Avatar Image says:

Does anyone know where I can find the images of Slytherin and Hufflepuff. I missed those and would love to see how they looked.

Avatar Image says:

I am going to answer my own question here…if you go to Wikipedia, Hogwarts Founders, you will see all the images from Jo’s site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogwarts_founders
