Famous stars whose ancestors are even more famous than they are

For the past year or so, the Hollywood rumor-mill has linked Angelina Jolie with the role of Cleopatra in a new movie based on the Egyptian queen’s life. Jolie may actually be more suited for the part than anyone thought, as she has royal lineage of her own. Through her mom, French humanitarian Marcheline Bertrand, the Oscar-winning actress has roots going all the way back to 12th-century French King Philip II. Bonus points: Jolie is also related to Louis VII, whose wife Eleanor of Aquitaine was also married to Henry II…who’s Brad Pitt’s ancestor.
