He was born to Marianne Dalgliesh, a bank secretary, and Colin Cavill, a stockbroker. Henry Cavill is the fourth-youngest Cavill sibling, but as his brothers avoid the spotlight, it is unsure how old they are.

According to The Famous People, the eldest brother is Piers Cavill, a former tank commander, and army officer. Niki Richard Dalgliesh Cavill, who is in the Royal Marines Corps and a member of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces in the UK, is the second-oldest. Niki’s military past obviously prevents a lot of information from being made public, so all we know about him is that, according to Henry Cavill on Instagram, he is “a total legend.”

Simon Cavill, the sibling immediately above Henry, is four years his senior and, as of this writing, is 39 years old. His reported employment in finance is unconfirmed. The Witcher star comes next, followed by Charlie Cavill, the youngest Cavill sibling. Charlie is the owner of Cavill & Wicks, a high-end coconut-soy blend candle manufacturer.
