R-Patz Really Is A Vampire! Related To Dracula

| Filed under: Robert Pattinson

robertpattinsonwenn2659695.jpg

Or at least he is related to one!

Genealogists, who apparently have nothing better to do than research the lineage of a vampire movie star, have discovered that Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson is related to Vlad the Impaler, the person widely considered the inspiration for in Bram Stoker's Dracula.

That's right! He's related to freakin' Dracula!

Let's break it down, courtesy of the Twi-Hards "researchers" at Ancestry.com:

So, R-Patz and Vlad III Dracula are connected through their relationship to the British royal family. In a minuscule way, R-Patz is a distant cousin to both Prince William and Prince Harry; Dracula was their distant uncle.

And there you go!

And guess what, Twi-Hards? Not only is R-Patz related to a vampire, but so is the Twilight creator, Stephenie Meyer.

Wonder if these researchers could find a way to trace Kristen Stewart's lineage to the disgruntled sloth? That would explain a lot.

    lolza disgruntled sloth



  2. 2

    BS, probably just trying to create publicity. That or it is true and they had to go a long long way to find it. "Distant cousin" can be a very very simplified way of saying .0001% related.

    Oh for fuck's sake Perez, just shut up about Kristen already. The girl never did ANYTHING to you other than date your precious R-Patz who, by the way, wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole even if he was gay.



  4. 4

    "to s disgruntle sloth?" Who the fuck is writing this shit? Are you employing illegal aliens or is your sister dyslexic? Oh, you were whacking off to Travis Garland and got distracted? That's ok, was just wondering. Carry on…



  5. 5

    fuck off perez! kristen stewart looked so beautiful tonight at the eclipse premiere



  6. 6

    haha disgruntled sloth :P (although i do actually LIKE kristen) but i mean really… i bet you could trace half the bloody population of europe back to vlad LOL it's rather like an atilla the hun sort of deal, what with all the ravaging of the women and such… LOTS of illegitimate children



  7. 7

    a disgruntled sloth, Perez. Other than that, that's pretty freaking awesome.



  8. 8

    whether it's true or not, I really try not to be mean P…but shit. There is nothing wrong with Kristen, I adore her, she is refreshing, in the context that's she's not some blond ditz that has no clue…btw since he's british, said he was distant cuz's with Harry and Will, it's a reasonable possibility he's related. I have ties to Irish "royalty" so to speak. Ancestry.com is very reputable.



  9. 9

    have they discovered that there is a werewolf gene in Taylor Lautners family too??



  10. 10

    this is a bunch of bullshiz



  11. 11

    Twilight is such a terrible vampire story and anyone that actually cares about traditional vampire lore should be horrified by what Stephenie Meyer has done. Twilight is such a joke… 95% of the people only care about it because the guys are hot and/or they want a creepy, emotionally crippling boyfriend like Edward Cullen.

    That being said, I can't wait for Eclipse.



  12. 12

    "Genealogists, who apparently have nothing better to do than research the lineage of a vampire movie star…"

    …and you have nothing better to do than write about it. Bit like the pot(belly) calling the kettle black, eh?



  13. 13

    I agree with muserz.. this has to be some idiotic thing to create publicity. Anyways Kristen was pretty relaxed at the Eclipse premiere! I was shocked..
    although her dress was hideous.



  14. 14

    Oh wow! I found this really interesting :) BUT PLEASE ALREADY LAY OFF KRISTEN!! She hasn't ever done anything personally to you…



  15. 15

    Have they tracked your lineage down to a lowly leech yet?



  16. 16

    I'm a twilight fan and even I have to say this is fucking stupid. Really? Related to Dracula? That's like saying Perez Hilton has actually gotten laid this year!



  17. 17

    Re: Life sucks and you die – LOL! Nice…



  18. 18

    Kristen looked gorgeous and smiley tonight, thanks very much.

  40. 40

    OMG….you are sooo simple minded and so is everyone attached to this so-called story.

    Any british person can be attached. So can I being Hungarian. So can anyone of Eastern European heritage. So can anyone claiming to be from anywhere in Europe.

    So yeah…….NO STORY!



  41. 41

    and how many TONS of other people are also so distantly related to vlad as well?



  42. 42

    Considering that Vlad Dracul was actually of Romanian descent…….I don't see how R-Patz is related to him….unless he is somehow of Romanian descent as well.

  43. Rasta says – reply to this


    43

    You won't hear Perez commenting on this, but I think it's sweet how Kristen's been wearing the same long necklace in all the Eclipse promos that RPatz gave to her on her birthday in Hungary. He has great taste because it's so unique and pretty. You can tell she cherishes his love.



  44. 44

    Any surviving british families are very likely related to the royal family and thusly vlad. And no he was not the inspiration for the book he was just one of the very strong figure heads thought to be a vampire since he did in fact drink the blood and eat the flesh of his enemies.

    Dracula was a completely new take on the whole vampire mythology which has existed for ten of thousands of years.

    And again anyone with british blood in them is probably related to the royal family thusly vlad. Know who else is? Me, in fact probably more closely then either of those two… Whoooooo not a big deal

    Also Twilight isn't about vampires its about gay guys that sparkle and are pedos



  45. 45

    It's a complete BS! Vlad Tepes, Prince of Wallachia, the Impaler or Dracula (correct name would be Dracul) had 3 known sons. Son from first marriage who married some Romanian noble woman and reined only one year, his descendants married romanian and moldavian noble women, none of them had any connection with European royal houses ever. Pretty much the same for his 2 other sons, whose descendants married into Hungarian nobility. So sorry, it's all just a publicity crap. They were rumors that Vlad III had some offsprings in Turkey, so may be R-Patz related to Sultan Mehmed II. )))



  46. 46

    Fake. Geneology nuts don't always tell the truth. A lot of records from back then have been gone since forever, there's no way to tell for sure. If it was all true and correct, I'd be related to the Black Knight, apparently.



  47. 47

    yeah and I just found out that I'm related to Marie Antoinette go figure.



  48. 48

    Re: Breathe – ha i was thinking the same thing



  49. 49

    i don't know if thats true, but it could be possible. not because we're talking about r-patz, its because maybe i was related, too. and you.
    the population at that time was minimal, compared to now (and don't mention epidemic diseases…).



  50. 50

    Maybe they will trace you to a long line of digusting pigs!



  51. 51

    Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuullshit!
    You don't even know who Dracula was. He wasn't even a vampire.
    His real name was Vlad Ţepeş and he was called Dracula because he was quite evil. And he didn't sparkle. xD
    Now STFU if you don't know what you're talking about.



  52. 52

    Wow…far fetched bullshit much? Trust you to believe this crap Mario!
    If you know anything about history and Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia aka Vlad the Impaler, you'd know that this is absolute bullshit.
    Recent research suggests that Stoker actually knew little about the Prince of Wallachia and therefor it is very unlikely he has actually based his Dracula on Vlad III. Vlad III also wasn't a 'vampire' but was merely known for the horrific ways he killed and tortured his enemies. Vampires were and are nothing more then legend, originated in Southern Slavic folklore but NOT from Romania. And there is certainly no evidence to proof that Vlad III was in any way related to the British royal family. Try reading some history books for once!!



  53. 53

    Vlad III Ţepeș' Romanian surname was Dracula, it means "Son of the dragon" he inherited it from his father Vlad II Dracul, who got this nickname "Dracul" after he had joined the Order of the Dragon, which were created to defend Christianity, in particular from the Ottoman Turks. Dracul, from the Latin word Draco, meaning "dragon". And, yes he was a cruel sick SOB. I don't understand why would anybody wants to relate to him.



  54. 54

    I can think why someone would want to be related to Vlad Tepes despite of him being one of the sickest people in history, because without him there is every chance that the Turks would have conquered Europe.
    Vlad was a military genius who stopped the Turks in their tracks, he fought them for most of his life, and fought his own brother who was on the side of the Turks. He was taken off his throne and imprisoned by King Henry of the Holy Roman Empire (I think, can't remember exactly) for being a sick bastard but when the Turks began winning and taking over again Vlad was released to reclaim his throne because he was the only one who could beat him.



  55. 55

    hahaha funny



  56. 56

    And having just finished reading Bram Stoker's Dracula I can say that it was based on the legends of Vlad Tepes, though he isn't mentioned by name in the book, he is described as having fought the Turks repeatedly, despite taking heavy losses.
    As for the comments that Vlad couldn't be related to the royal family, from what I have read Vlad's wife was related to King Henry which would make him related in one way or another to pretty much every royal family in Europe, though I doubt Robert Pattinson is related, except possibly in the most remote way possible.



  57. 57

    Re: Starlit – Hahaha ZIIIIINNGGG



  58. 58

    This is just BS.

    The only problem you have with Kristen is Rob and that she is playing Bella, if it was someone els you would have a problem with her and so would other haters.

    BTW, if she wasn't playing Bella, Rob wouldn't be Edward. He said she was the reason he wasted to try out for the part. He had a little crush on her and thought/think that she was amazing in In to the Wild. She is rumored to say that if Robert don't get the part I wont be Bella.



  59. 59

    No, that's not "Freakin' Dracula", that's Vlad Tepes….
    I would know that, being borned and raised in Transilvania, and studying tooooo much at History classes.
    It's sad that people know Romania only for it's vampire stories, which are untrue.

    Oh, and I think they are making it out just for publicity



  60. 60

    Re: madlina – Finally someone with brains! :) Being a history buff myself, the vampire legend has no history in Romanian folklore, am I correct? They come from Southern Slavic folklore but NOT Romania…



  61. 61

    Technically we're all related, so this is basically bollocks. I'm sure everyone could link themselves to a famous historical figure if they twisted and turned.



  62. 62

    he looks like some weird bloodsucking prep guy in some boarding school so wouldnt surprise me



  63. 63

    This is pretty ridiculous but man, leave the poor woman alone, she is trying hard! She's really getting better at this so leave her alone! You're so fucking mean to her and she really didn't do anything! Go Kristen!!!



  64. 64

    Congratulations, Perez, you have officially taken the prixe for most retarded piece of celeb-news ever written. I bet I'M related to Dracula, I bet YOU are, I bet EVERYONE is. Thanks for a cheap laugh, and thank those bored genealogists when you next meet them.
    And I'm with Laury, leave Kristen alone, she's got more beauty and talent in her little finger than R-Trampz has in his whole body.



  65. 65

    Re: Laury – Right on! Let's keep the love for Kristen coming.



  66. 66

    Guess we're all cousins.



  67. 67

    you just had to throw in kristen stewart at the very end of this post! you're so fucking pathetic. stop hating on the girl because she gets to work w/guys you could only dream of standing by and breathing the same fucking air!



  68. 68

    WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN TO HER?



  69. 69

    Re: Muserz – I agree.



  70. 70

    first



  71. 71

    Right … if R-Patz believes this , I`ve got a bridge for him real cheap ! Gimme a break !

    Re: Rasta

    you're a loser. get a life.

  74. 74

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – LOL LOL LOL



  75. 75

    rob pattinson is related to prince harry and william?? wtf :S



  76. 76

    funny little fact. but if you trace anyone back far enough youll find interestin stuff. not so long ago there were only a million people in the whole of europe. the human race is only 70,000 years old. looking at your ethnicity and your number of homogenous genes shows how related your parents are to each other. considering britain is also an island. it isnt surprising that many people who arent descended from fairly recent immigrants are inter-related.



  77. 77

    lol i wish i was related to a vampire lol



  78. 78

    Re: Muserz – Exactly. Everyone is .0001% related. Unfortunately, I'm probably distantly related to Perez. Puke.

  79. biscu says – reply to this


    79

    yea sure, the next thing to find it's that R-Patz was born in Craiova( the city i live in/a city from ROMANIA) and his parents are my neighborhoods. c'mon … don't belive this one. ;)
    ROMANIA - where Vlad the Impaler was born



  80. 80

    You're getting really preditable… Twilight! blah blah blah ohhh amazeballs! then… *insert snarky comment about K-Stew* in EVERY SINGLE POST!

    bravo twi-hards. you are useful!
    & the disgruntled slot hahaha.



  83. 83

    Hmm, I don't know about this one. It could be just a publicity stunt.



  84. 84

    ROFL!!!!!



  85. 85

    HA HA HA @ the disgruntled sloth comment. I soooo agree with you! Wtf is her problem anyway??? OMG fame is sooo hard!!! Get over it! LOL



  86. 86

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver

    even i, who am still learning the basics of english(since i'm a brazilian), wouldn't make a disgusting mistake like : " s disgruntle sloth", we have tolls to check and correct those miss spells, you know perez…is disgruntled sloth(and what's is wrong with : "lazy asshole" anyway ???)…
    now, eldridge, i'm so glad that i could find you, you only leave comments when is a post related to politics, or facts that really matter(wich is so rare here…), i'm dying to ask you this, who is the person on your avatar(’cause i believe strongly that couldn't be eldridge cleaver…) who is she ???(or he, i really can't tell, sorry) ?????



  87. 87

    that is fucking retarded. and total bullshit.



  88. 88

    I'm sure a lot of Europe's population is related (distantly) to Dracula and the British royal family as well. Not really news. Although interesting.



  89. 89

    Vlad was a merciless blood-drinking human warmonger; but "vampire" I'm afraid not.



  90. 90

    Re: poopdiddy2008 – Life must be really difficult for you huh? Do you have a special coloring book? What a dumbass you are.



  91. 91

    Yeah, we're ALL related to him in the roundabout way these idiots do it. You can make anything come out the way you want if you try hard enough. Meaningless.



  92. 92

    wtf…..HAHA this is bs. I'm more surprised that rpatz is slightly related to he royal family!!??? haha now that's fucking awesome



  93. 93

    Love the Kristen Stewart reference… As usual. LOL
    But the rest? Whatever… Probably bullshit… Like this filthy guy who looks like he has some kinda of disease wasn't already surrounded by enough bullshit trying to make him interesting and "hot"…



  94. 94

    Who cares if he's related to vampires or not!! Look at that jawline!! :-D



  95. 95

    that's just stupid
