Helga Hufflepuff, a cofounder of Hogwarts alongside Rowena Ravenclaw, Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin, gets very little credit. Her house has had many famous names come through over the years. It’s time they get some recognition.
What a lot of people might not know is that Hufflepuff will often take the students who didn’t fit into the requirements of the other houses.
