Sorting “Bridgerton” Characters into Their Hogwarts Houses
Bridgerton, set in a similar time as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, is currently the most-watched original Netflix series. While I was watching, I couldn’t help but wonder which Hogwarts Houses some of these characters would be in.
Daphne Bridgerton – Slytherin
Although Daphne can be kind and is incredibly loyal to her family, she is also manipulative and cunning. After all, she shrewdly managed to get Simon to marry her to save her name, even though he would have fought and lost the duel with Anthony for her. Also, when she and Simon were in an intimate position, she manipulated the situation to try to conceive a child even though she knew he didn’t want to. Her calculating nature puts her in Slytherin.
Simon Basset – Gryffindor
The Duke of Hastings is an honorable man who stood by Daphne when there was a chance their actions in the garden could have ruined her. Not only that, but he also supported Colin and the other Bridgertons when Lady Whistledown’s publication revealed Marina’s pregnancy after Colin and Marina were engaged. In addition, it took a lot of courage and bravery to face up to what his father did to him when he was a child and to overcome it for Daphne.
Anthony Bridgerton – Hufflepuff
As the Viscount and the oldest male in the family, Anthony is incredibly loyal to and protective of his family. He only wants the best for them and does what he thinks is the best, even though the others may not have the same idea. Anthony definitely belongs in Hufflepuff.
Colin Bridgerton – Hufflepuff
Colin is an incredibly kind man who values honesty and follows his heart. He believed he was in love with Marina and hastily proposed to her. After learning about her pregnancy, he mentions how he would have stood by her and married her had she told him the truth.
Eloise Bridgerton – Ravenclaw
Unlike her sister, Eloise wants more from life than becoming a wife and mother. As a woman living in the early 19th century, she is trapped in the conventions of her time. Regardless, her thirst for knowledge means she does as much as she can with the resources available to her.
Penelope Featherington – Ravenclaw
The final few moments of the show reveal that Lady Whistledown is really Penelope. It must have been incredibly difficult and taken a great deal of knowledge to hide her secret from the rest of the ton, all the while portraying herself as an ordinary debutante who is only trying to find a husband.
Marina Thompson – Slytherin
Although she enters the narrative as an innocent cousin, her true nature is revealed when she and the Featheringtons discover her pregnancy. Once this came out, she was willing to manipulate Colin into marrying her even though she knew that he genuinely cared for her and was a good person who didn’t deserve the deception and pain.
