5 Richest Harry Potter Characters: You'll Never Guess Who Tops the List
There's a lot of gold in that bank, but who does it all belong to?
The wizarding world of Harry Potter is more about power than wealth. But the two often go hand in hand. And the gulf between the Weasleys and the Malfoys in terms of material wealth has not been hidden.
So let's take a look at who the richest characters in the series are:
5. Lucius Malfoy
You might be surprised that Lucius doesn't make it higher up the list, as he was a man who often flaunted his wealth to prove his status.
He owns a large estate in Wiltshire, has a job in the Ministry of Magic and comes from a long line of wealthy individuals.
4. Bellatrix Lestrange
Bellatrix's wealth comes mainly from inheritance and marriage. Nevertheless, she has a considerable amount of treasure (along with a Horcrux) locked away in Gringotts.
3. Harry Potter
Harry Potter may not seem like a rich kid, but he inherited a considerable amount of wealth from his grandfather.
Harry is also the owner of a unique item – one of the Deathly Hallows, the Invisibility Cloak. If Harry were to auction it off, he could make an instant fortune.
2. Blaise Zabini's mother
Let's face it, you don't get to be as vain as Blaise without a fair amount of unearned privilege. Known as the Black Widow, Mrs Zabini has had seven different husbands, all of whom are known to have met an untimely end. And with each passing husband, her personal fortune grew.
1. Nicolas Flamel
As the proud owner of the Philosopher's Stone, Flamel's wealth is limitless. The stone can turn any object into gold and produce the elixir of life.
Not only does this make him an instant billionaire, but it has taken him over 600 years to amass his fortune. Show me someone with more wealth.
Interestingly, Nicolas Flamel was also a genuine French philosopher. But he didn't have the Midas touch.
