At first the four founders worked together, bringing together young witches and wizards to teach them the magical arts. However, one founder—Salazar Slytherin—believed that only those from all-magic families should receive their education at Hogwarts. Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, and Rowena Ravenclaw welcomed Muggle-borns into the school, which prompted Slytherin to leave.

Godric Gryffindor was the founder of Gryffindor house at Hogwarts, after whom it is named. Along with three other Hogwarts founders, Godric Gryffindor helped build Hogwarts castle over one thousand years ago.

Salazar Slytherin is one of the four founders of Hogwarts and the person after whom Slytherin house is named. He believed that Hogwarts should be selective about its admission of magical students, only opening doors to those who came from all-magic families. He believed that students of Muggle parentage were untrustworthy. The differences in philosophies caused a rift between the founders, and Slytherin left the school. Salazar Slytherin was known for his ability to speak Parseltongue, or snake language. This ability made him a Parselmouth.
