Scrooge McDuck Wikia

Arthur Ravenswood was a human man.


Arthur Ravenswood got rich alongside his brother Henry as a mining baron in Gold Rush-era Thunder Mesa. He was a much kinder and more level-headed man than Henry, and largely responsible for the financial success of the Ravenswood operations, Henry being more interested in spending than earning. Injured in the 1860 earthquake, Arthur spent the nine last years of his life very ill, tended to by his young wife Gabrielle. He passed away in 1869.

Behind the scenes

Arthur Ravenswood was created for the backstory of the Disneyland Paris ride Phantom Manor, which opened in 1992. He and his wife's tombstones were supposed to appear in the ride. However, he was cut to simplify the ride's storyline, and thus his existence wasn't revealed until the 2012 short story Family Secrets.
