Prince Charles Related To Vlad The Impaler
October 30, 2011 by staff
Prince Charles Related To Vlad The Impaler, Prince Charles, the first in line to the throne of the United Kingdom, and Robert Pattinson in the movie “Twilight” vampires have more in common besides their British heritage.
The two are related to Vlad the Impaler, a warlord of the 15th century Romanian said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s iconic 1897 vampire novel, “Dracula.”
Charles, 62, speaks whereabouts of their heritage in the UK series “Wild Carpathia” which will air in the channel of international travel in several European countries on 30 October. The program promotes the preservation of forests in the Transylvanian region of Romania.
“The genealogy shows that I am a descendant of Vlad the Impaler”, Charles, father of Princes William and Harry and son of Queen Elizabeth II, said in the documentary. “So I have a bit of interest in the country.”
Last year, Ancestry.com genealogist Anastasia Tyler, said Pattinson, 25, a distant cousin of the royal family in the UK, which is related to the leader of Transylvania.
“Family Tracing Pattinson is back to Vlad was a difficult investigation, but the pieces that got rid created the perfect accompaniment to ‘The Twilight Saga’” he said. “Without any myth or magic, we find the royalty and vampires lurking in Pattinson’s life – making history as supernatural as the one being played on the screen.”
Ancestry.com also named other celebrities with blood ties to Vlad – Former U.S. President George W. Bush, former presidential candidate John Kerry and Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the “Twilight” novels that inspired the movies.
Pattinson plays vampire Edward Cullen alongside Kristen Stewart in “Twilight” movies. News about his “Dracula” heritage was released shortly before the third film, “Eclipse” hits theaters. The fourth installment of the hit series, “Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ is scheduled to be released on November 18.
