Nicolas Flamel, a wizard known for his longevity

This is a list of wizards and witches who have reached the oldest ages known. It includes only those who have lived to age 100 or beyond. Individuals of other long-living species, such as vampires, are excluded.

Wizards can live much longer lives than Muggles and some have lived several hundreds of years. There does not seem to be a theoretical maximum lifespan for wizards and most deaths have happened for non-natural reasons.
