Did you hear that Robert Pattinson is REALLY related to Dracula?

'Twilight' Vampire Robert Pattinson Related to Dracula - Vlad IV Prince Draculaea of Walachia

Forget about Bela Lugosi. "Twilight" biter Robert Pattinson might be an actual blood relative to Dracula.

A new twist provided by the tween-scream flick's promotion machine says researchers at Web site claim to have discovered that the 24-year-old British actor is related to the 15th-Century ruler Vlad IV Tzepesch, a.k.a. Vlad the Impaler, a.k.a. that crazy killer freak who inspired Bram Stoker's classic novel, "Dracula."

If that's not quite enough to get your blood pumping, the good people at also say the Pattinson-Dracula connection extends to the British royal family. Yep, Prince William and Prince Harry are Pattinson's distant cousins, and Vlad, they claim, was their distant uncle.
