Corvus Lestrange IV is a posthumous antagonist in the 2018 film The Crimes of Grindelwald. He is the father of Corvus Lestrange V and the nemesis of Yusuf Kama.

In his flashback appearance he was portrayed by Keith Chanter.


Corvus was the son of Corvus Lestrange III and Eglantine Lestrange. He was acquainted with the Kama family. One night, Corvus used the Imperius Curse to put a spell on Laurena Kama and force her to marry him. Through the Imperius Curse, he raped Laurena and had a daughter, Leta Lestrange. This frustrated Corvus, who wanted a son to continue his bloodline.

Laurena died shortly after giving birth and Corvus married Clarisse Tremblay. Together they had a son, who Corvus named after himself in the family tradition. When Laurena's son Yusuf heard of this, he swore an Unbreakable Vow to kill Corvus V and end the Lestrange bloodline. Upon hearing of the vow Corvus sent his son to America with Leta. However, the boat sank and Corvus V drowned due to Leta having swapped him with Aurelius Dumbledore.

Corvus Lestrange IV died sometime afterwards, believing his son to be alive. After his death he was interred in the Lestrange Grand Mausoleum. A Lestrange family tree he owned passed into the possession of the French Ministry.
