40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
The Lestranges and Blacks Are Part of the Sacred 28
In the world of Harry Potter, pureblood families guard their purity religiously. As a result, there are families in the wizarding world known as “The Sacred 28,” which means that their blood has remained pure to this day. Of course, as Sirius points out, there are no truly pure-blooded families anymore. Somewhere along the way, muggles and squibs have almost invariably muddied the waters.
The Blacks and Lestranges are both part of this sacred group, even though it’s something of a lie. Still, both families hold on to the idea of keeping their blood pure, even if that idea is a bit of a fantasy.
