Eglantine Lestrange was a French witch and a member of the pure-blood Lestrange family. She was the daughter of Falco Lestrange and Salomé Lestrange. She married her cousin[1] Corvus Lestrange and had a son with him, Corvus, through whom she was the grandmother of Leta Lestrange and Corvus Lestrange.[2]


Eglantine's name originates from Old French and it means "spiny, needle-like", which is in reference to the thorns of the eglantine, which is a wild rose also known as sweet briar.
