Bellatrix Lestrange (née Black) was a pure-blood witch, the daughter of Cygnus III and Druella Black and elder sister of Andromeda Tonks and Narcissa Malfoy. She started her education at Hogwarts in 1962 and was Sorted into Slytherin house. After graduating from Hogwarts, she became a Death Eater, fanatically loyal to Lord Voldemort. She was one of the few known females in the group, as well as among the most dangerous and sadistic of Voldemort’s followers. During the final battle, she was the last Death Eater standing, apart from Voldemort, but was eventually killed in a duel by Molly Weasley.
