We kid you not.

As Fans’ excitement hit fever pitch at the Eclipse premiere in Los Angeles last night, gene experts revealed Rob’s family can be traced back to Vlad the Impaler (real name: Vlad III Dracula).

It’s thought that Vlad – who inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel – is Rob’s distant uncle.

And that’s not all. Gene geeks have also discovered R-Patz could even share links to royalty, with Princes William and Harry as distant cousins.

‘Royalty and vampires lurk in Pattinson’s life, making his story just as supernatural as the one he plays on screen,’ said Ancestry expert Anastasia Tyler.
