40 Things You Never Realized About Ron & Hermione
The Sorting Hat Struggled to Place Hermione
Hermione is one of the brightest witches to ever set foot in Hogwarts. She’s super brainy, which might have made her seem like a natural fit for Ravenclaw, the house most knowns for its smarts. The sorting hat almost placed her there. She definitely has the wisdom to fit in well.
After four minutes of back and forth, the hat ultimately decided that she was a better fit for Gryffindor. She may be smart, but she also has the kind of daring and nerve that characterizes that house. She would have done well in Ravenclaw, but it’s hard to argue with the hat’s decision.
