In the initial Harry Potter series, the name Lestrange is synonymous with steady loyalty to Voldemort. The poster kid of the household is, all, Bellatrix Lestrange, that Helena Bonham Carter gives birth to in a fantastically bad performance.
Though, as we’ll mention, she herself isn’t a Lestrange by blood. The family members ends up being important once more in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald after we learn about Newt’s dear friend Leta Lestrange and her link with Credence Barebone.

Pottermore, acted as the Minister For Magic from
1835 to 1841. He attempted to close down the Department of Mysteries throughout his brief run as Minister. Radolphus at some point stepped down as a result of bad health and wellness, though it was hypothesized that he could not take care of the stress and anxiety of the workplace.

Corvus Lestrange IV
Right here’s where the twisted exposition in The Crimes of Grindelwald kicks off. Corvus IV is a seedy man through and through, utilizing the Imperius Curse to obtain Laurena Kama to leave Yusuf’s dad and marry him. Laurena passes away after giving birth to her daughter Leta Lestrange, or Yusuf’s half-sister. Corvus IV later marries Clarisse Tremblay. Their union causes the birth of Corvus Lestrange V.

In Harry Potter as well as the Half Blood Prince, Tom Riddle has a close Hogwarts friend called Lestrange (no first name that we understand of), that’s probably a direct descendent of Radolphus and related to Leta as a distant relative. He later turns into one of the initial Death Eaters. He’s perhaps Rabastan as well as Rodolphus Lestrange’s papa.
