Rob Is Related To The Real Dracula!Jun 23rd, 2010 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
Ancestry.com has done some research and has found out that Robert Pattinson is a distant relative of Vlad the Impaler, the original inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula! How cool is that?
Researchers at Ancestry.com discovered that Pattinson and the Transylvanian leader (real name: Vlad III Dracula) are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson’s distant cousins; Vlad the Impaler was their distant uncle.
“Tracing Pattinson’s family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga,” said Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist at Ancestry.com. “Without any myth or magic, we find royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson’s life — making his story just as supernatural as the one he’s playing on screen.”
