How to find out the original creator of an AWS account


Hello. I would like to know if there is a way to find out the username that was responsible for creating my AWS account 3-4 years ago without using CloudWatch Insights or any other AWS service that logs data beyond 90 days. Thanks in advance.

The account would have been created using a unique email address so that may help you determine. Is it part of an organization? If so CloudTrail in the Management account may help depending on how long you retain trails. If standalone, other than hoping they used their details on the Account page I'm not aware of how you'd find it out.
