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.

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".
