Which Hogwarts house was Umbridge in?

Which house was fudge sorted into?

It's never mentioned in the books, but fudge has many properties that can be ascribed to any home.

But as this link (not Canon Link but it shares my thoughts) says it all has its qualities in that they are difficult to locate in a house that it can probably put in Hufflepuff. Because its qualities can never be precisely determined.

I would say because he never shows a lot of intelligence, I wouldn't put him in Ravenclaw because he is never extremely cunning.

He tries to achieve his goals, but he also tries to help others. For example when he tried not to panic everyone in books 4 and 5. That was partly incredulous, but you could say that he tries to be helpful and reassuring.

From here:

He is concerned about the aftermath of the announcement of Voldemort's return, which marks the end of the wizarding world's years of peace and the sudden outbreak of darkness and terror. Therefore, instead of accepting the truth, he chooses to just ignore any evidence. JK Rowling has since stated that Fudge's behavior mirrored that of Neville Chamberlain in the lead-up to World War II

when he arrives at school to take Hagrid to Azkaban, despite not being firmly convinced that Hagrid is guilty. He also removes Dumbledore as headmaster if he is pressured by Lucius Malfoy, who insisted that all headmasters voted on it.

He is impressionable as his name suggests on Fudge. But that's also a common name (whatever) but the quote still shows that it can be used. And that fact, not his search for power, could be why he is in office.

But in one other point he might be a Slytherin.

He also passes legislation that will allow him to appoint Dolores Umbridge, its senior undersecretary, as a teacher at Hogwarts. He then appoints Umbridge as Hogwarts' High Inquisitor with the authority to inspect and dismiss teachers, and finally to succeed Dumbledore as Headmaster, who gives her (and thus Fudge himself) primary control over how Hogwarts is run. Fudge is concerned that Dumbledore is a threat to his power and that he plans to train the Hogwarts students to overthrow the Ministry.

From this quote it appears that he has an "addiction" to power and wants to control people's reactions to what Harry and Hogwarts are saying.

And in here he tries to hold on to his strength.

He makes several attempts to have Dumbledore arrange a meeting between himself and Harry so that Harry can be in Fudge's name and make it look like the Ministry is winning the war but Dumbledore refuses because he knows how ridiculous Harry would find the idea. Fudge is last mentioned on the series as one of the attendees at Dumbledore's funeral; His fate during Voldemort's takeover of the ministry the following year is unknown.

But he's a mix of Slytherin and Hufflepuff.

"You are blinded by the love of your office ( Note: Hufflepuff qualities ), Cornelius! You care too much about what is called purity of blood, and you always have! ( Note: Slytherin qualities. ) They don't. "Realize that what matters is not what someone is born, but what they become!"

- Albus Dumbledore to Cornelius Fudge

I would put him in Hufflepuff because he's not necessarily bad and he's mostly a good but weak-willed guy, but he's being pushed to make wrong decisions because he has no leadership skills and the wrong people have whispers in his ears.

From the Wikia;

At the same time, Lucius Malfoy, the then Headmaster, had suspended Dumbledore, whom Fudge had tried to protest, but to no avail. Eventually it was proven that Hagrid was indeed innocent and he was released.

That summer, Sirius Black fled Azkaban, unbalancing Fudge and setting him on a downward spiral of bad decisions. A few weeks before Black's escape, Fudge visited him while on a tour of Azkaban Prison and was upset about how normal Black seemed in relation to the other prisoners.

From the sorting hat songs:

He may have got his love for the Pureblood as a Slytherin.

Slytherin said, "We will only teach those whose ancestors are the purest."

For Ravenclaw, the smartest would always be the best

From this quote below, it can be seen that Fudge is definitely not a Ravenclaw.

In Fudge's early days as a minister, it was said that he was not very confident and kept sending letters to Albus Dumbledore asking for advice.

This is not a canon, but it provides insight that I disagree with (but it is insight).

But the songs can give you an idea of ​​what it means to be in a house and help you decide for yourself as the songs give you an idea of ​​what characteristics each house has. I hope I have answered your question. I'm going to give an A+ to give me some thought. But I couldn't find a canon that said that answer directly.


I appreciate the thought you put into this matter and I am glad you enjoyed it. However, the bulk of this answer is just to analyze personality traits which, as you have pointed out, are extremely subjective, and that's why I said I don't want answers based on them. While "I couldn't find a canon directly saying this answer" is useful, the rest are less.


@BESW Sorry, I didn't really answer that. I will update my answer based on the criteria. I have some thoughts on this, but I don't think we know many people from his year.


In Chamberlain's defense, he knew that England was not ready at the time to wage another war against a raging Germany, and no one really expected them to crush France as they did. His practice of keeping England out of direct conflict in order to build enough resources and skills to launch an attack on the mainland would have been in vain if they had wasted all their energies this early.


Good breakdown, but I don't think blood purity itself is an actual Slytherin trait as opposed to a political cause many of them for reasons share that Slytherin traits are - like ambition, traditionalism, brotherhood, self-preservation, etc. Still, that's pretty nicely put!
