On December 28, 1997, Ron Weasley destroyed Salazar Slytherin’s locket deep in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Ron used Godric Gryffindor’s sword to stab the locket, thus destroying it.

The locket had been a powerful Horcrux, an object in which a Dark Wizard had placed a fragment of his soul in order to achieve immortality. Salazar Slytherin was one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and was known for his ambition and cunning. He had created the locket as a Horcrux, and it had been in the possession of Lord Voldemort for many years.

Ron Weasley, a student at Hogwarts, had been tasked with destroying the locket by Harry Potter, who had been sent on a mission to find and destroy all of Voldemort’s Horcruxes. Ron had found the locket in the possession of a house-elf named Kreacher, and had taken it with him to the Forest of Dean.

Once there, Ron had used Godric Gryffindor’s sword to stab the locket, thus destroying it. The sword had been given to Harry by Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts, and was one of the few weapons capable of destroying a Horcrux.

The destruction of the locket was a major step in Harry’s mission to defeat Voldemort, and it marked the end of Salazar Slytherin’s legacy. It also marked the beginning of a new era in the wizarding world, one in which Voldemort’s reign of terror was finally brought to an end.

Ron Weasley’s brave and selfless act of destroying Salazar Slytherin’s locket will be remembered for many years to come. On May 25, 2022, the 25th anniversary of the locket’s destruction, the wizarding world will celebrate the courage and bravery of Ron Weasley, who sacrificed himself to save the world from the Dark Lord.
