Sorting Hat's description:
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw
If you've a ready mind
Where those of wit and learning
Will always find their kind.

Without wishing to boast, this is the house where the cleverest witches and wizards live
Ravenclaw, make them score!
"Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure."
Professor Rowena Ravenclaw (fl. c. 993—1000) Scottish witch
lived in the early Middle Ages
Noted for her intelligence and creativity and regarded as one of the greatest witches of the age
Rowena Ravenclaw died sometime into the eleventh century, after she fell fatally ill. Legend had it that a broken heart is the cause — because her daughter, Helena, had run away with her diadem.
She was a good friend of Helga Hufflepuff
It is a popular historical theory that the location and name of Hogwarts were both chosen by Ravenclaw, who dreamt that a warty hog was leading her to a cliff by the lake. Ravenclaw came up with the ever-changing floor plan.
Ravenclaw selected her students according to intelligence and wisdom. Ravenclaw House therefore values a sharp mind, wisdom, creativity, and cleverness in its members.
She asked the Baron, who was in love with Helena, to go and find her daughter, merely wishing to see her one last time. He eventually tracked her to a forest in Albania but when she refused to return with him, the Baron flew into a fit of rage, furious at her refusal and envious of her freedom, and stabbed her. Immediately overcome with guilt, he then took his own life. The two would later become, respectively, Ravenclaw and Slytherin house ghosts.[
"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."
Around the age of 11 she met the Baron of Slytherin house. He fell in love with her, though she always rejected his advances Helena never found true love as she never found a man that lived up to her standards.
