Minister Radolphus Lestrange was a wizard who, from 1835 to 1841, served as Minister for Magic of Britain and Ireland, being elected at least once.[1]


He unsuccessfully attempted to close down the Department of Mysteries, and eventually resigned due to ill health, which was rumoured to be an inability to cope with stress of the office.[1]


  • The name Radolphus seems to be a variation of "Radulf", which is itself derived from the Norse elements ráð meaning "counsel" and úlfr meaning "wolf".
