Taylor Swift reportedly has royal blood running in her veins.

The singer-songwriter, 34, is distantly related to a French king as well as movie icon Johnny Depp, according to a genealogist’s report.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Going back through her bloodline, one of her ancestors was King Louis XIV, the French monarch who built the Palace of Versailles, Roi Mandel, the director of research at MyHeritage, told TODAY.com on Friday.

According to Mandel, the superstar is an eighth cousin 11 times removed of King Louis XIV — the French monarch who built the Palace of Versailles and reigned from 1643 to 1715.

The Fortnight hitmaker — who said her Paris show was ‘female rage: the musical’ — is also related to actor Depp.

 

The genealogy expert told the outlet that although Swift’s tie to royalty is not surprising and ‘not rare,’ he called it an ‘amazing’ discovery.

‘It’s not rare because when you look Europe … we saw how all the houses of royals in Europe are connected to each other,’ he explained.

‘They’re all cousins and they are the founding fathers, as they say,’ Mandel added. ‘Their descendants eventually, many generations later, emigrated to the U.S.’

The genealogist added that the connection is ‘interesting’ because the monarch also had love for the music and the arts.

The connection to Louis XIV is interesting because XIV is the king that built the magnificent Palace of Versailles, where all the parties were spectacular,’ Mandel said. ‘He used to play a lot of music there. He used to play the guitar. He was passionate about cultural music.’

The genealogist explained that he and his team made the discovery when they started exploring Swift’s familial ties to Europe.

While he went through his business as he normally would, the 54-year-old’s emotions were on full display as he would break down while thanking co-host Skip Bayless. The three-time Super Bowl winner has since posted a behind-the-scenes video in which he’s shown arriving to work at FOX, getting dressed, doing his final bit, and then exiting the building. Sharpe had called his daughter Kayley to the desk while saying his goodbyes, embracing her, and thanking her before heading off. While the segment that was broadcast to television did not show their bodies in full, Sharpe’s behind-the-scenes clip showed the position of his hand while he hugged her.
