The Horcruxes dominate the final arc of the Harry Potter series, as the titular protagonist needs to destroy them in order to end the threat of Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Although Voldemort is the prime user of Horcruxes, the Wizarding World's history stretches far back to when the first Horcrux was created. It's also fascinating to keep track of how, where, and when each Horcrux was created, stored, and destroyed.
The Horcruxes took a long journey, so it's worth learning about the entire history and eventual vanquishing of these pieces of dark magic.
