I always wondered if Salazar Slytherin himself ever made any horcruxes or not. It seems probable that he did, given that he was one of the most powerful Dark Wizards of all time and assumably the descendant of Herpo the Foul. Also, Voldemort was always proud to be the heir of Slytherin and regarded him as kind of a role model. It is not improbable that he got the idea of creating horcruxes after he somehow learned that Slytherin himself had one. BTW, it is also interesting how every 1000 years or so a powerful Dark Wizard appears in this bloodline... --Herpon 21:49, September 9, 2009 (UTC)
