I imagine that Vlad is one of those people who spread his seed far and wide, so there's probably loads of people related to him.
Still, LOLZ Prince William and Prince Harry are related to him as well, which means that pretty much ALL European royalty is!

It's like how statistically every person of Western European descent is related to Charlemagne. Perspective, people!

Seriously. The same can be said about Genghis Khan.

Doesn't the article also say that Stephenie Meyer is, too?
Someone on my LJ referred back to this picture
and said, "So his name isn't Twilight, but he IS a Dracula?"

Yes, yes it does. And apparently linking them to Vlad was ~~difficult~~ work for Ancestry.com. They were chagrined even!

I'm shocked. Oh, wait. No. I already knew all royalty was pretty much multi-related.

it appears vampire blood may really run through Robert Pattinson's veins
And Jim Halpert's! So maybe they're related too!

Rob should hook up with a relative of Elizabeth Báthory. That would be lolarious.

OT, but did you know that they just put out a movie about her? I was interested until I found out it was another "Historical woman just needs a MAAAAAN." story.

I hadn't heard of that!
Is it the one starring Julie Delpy?

That's the one! Hilariously, when I searched the title ("The Countess") on IMDB, one of the results was none other than the (in)famous Justine Baker.

He has also been challenged to "a field of battle" by a *cough* real vampire.
It was only a matter of time.
