Celebs Who Came From Royalty

86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

I’ve often said the celebrity worship in this country seems to be the American equivalent of the British royalty worship. That having shunned a monarchy we still seemed to need some lofty fairytale to worship and it seems for many celebrities in a sense were a psychological replacement for royal families. I may not have been that far off. Check out this list of 20 celebrities who are descendants of royalty.

Such as Brad Pitt. Brad is a descendant of King Henry II, who ruled England from 1154-1189? Are you kidding me? Does this mean King Henry II sat around hitting a bong? Brooke Shields was shocked to find out she’s directly related to King Henry IV of France. How ironic is it that Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson is not only a distant cousin of Prince Harry and Prince William but he’s a descendant of Vlad The Impaler, the real life inspiration for Dracula.
