You’re familiar with Vlad the Impaler, right? Ya, know the age old Transylvanian who had a fetish for impaling people (to death) who inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula? Well check this out. Apparently ole’ “I’m-gonna-kill-you-with-a-pointy-stick-guy” (which is ironic for a supposed vampire) is a relative to “I-don’t-wash-my-hair” Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame (like you needed to know that). Yep, that’s what Ancestry.com has to say. They discovered that Pattinson and the Transylvanian overlord are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattisons distinct 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 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.”
But that’s not all! Stephanie Meyer, the author of Twilight book series (like you needed to know that either) is also related through the princess as well.
Bah! I’m sure if you connect the dots with anyone that they could be Kuenta Kente’s distant relative. These are Bogus Claims. If anything this is just a publicity stunt for the new movie. Coinciduence that the this breaks out a week before the new movie. I think not.
