Motto: Fidelitate Coniuncti (Loyalty Binds Us)
Founders: Abraxas Lestrange and his wife, Effervia Lestrange
Heirs: Rodolphus Lestrange and his brother, Rabastan
The Lestrange family hail from the North, having been, in times of old, the Lords and Ladies of North West England and reigning over that region in the late 14th century. During the First Magic Rebellion (1634-1651), in which all Wizarding Houses of Britain rebelled against the oppressive English Government, House Lestrange’s army was commanded by Lord Medrick Lestrange, son of Lorina and Fredrick, and won seven consecutive battles before he was slain by Oliver Cromwell. Following this defeat, the Lestrange household went into hiding, emerging much later, sometime during the early 1700s.
The Lestrange family are well respected and feared in most wizarding circles and pride themselves on having blood of the most pure quality running through their veins. Pride, confidence and power seem to be the most recurring traits of such a family, along with stubbornness and an insatiable thirst for blood.
Unconfirmed rumours hint that Lestrange heir, Rodolphus, and his younger brother Rabastan have every intention of taking on the mark of the Dark Lord and fighting with him for blood supremacy and the abolition of muggle power in the modern world.
