Robert Pattinson related to Dracula, say genealogists

Posted on: June 24, 2010

Twilight actor Robert Pattinson is related to Vlad-the Impaler, the Transylvanian leader who served as the inspiration for the main character in Bram Stoker”s Dracula, according to genealogists.

Experts at Ancestry.com found that Pattinson and Vlad III Dracula are connected through their relationship to the British royal family.

While Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson’s distant cousins, Vlad the Impaler was their distant uncle, reports News.com.au.

“Tracing Pattinson’s family back to Vlad was difficult research, but the pieces that unraveled created the perfect accompaniment to the Twilight Saga,” Anastasia Tyler, a genealogist, said.

“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,” Tyler added.
