Look Who’s Related: Angelina Jolie and Cleopatra

Posted September 21, 2011 by Amanda | 5 Comments

It was announced a few months ago that actress Angelina Jolie would take on the role of Cleopatra in an upcoming biopic. We thought it would be interesting to see how Angelina Jolie is related to the Egyptian queen and look what we found: Cleopatra is Angelina Jolie’s 57th great grandmother! Check out how Angelina Jolie is related to other notable celebrities in Geni’s World Family Tree!

The World Family Tree is quickly approaching 60 million profiles. Have you found any interesting relationship paths? Let us know how you’re related!

    How have you connected the HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) in the ancestral chain of Angelina Jolie. Please explain your source of information as this entirely falsifed and would badly hurt the feeling of muslims around the world. I request the Geni website to investigate immediately into this Ancestral chain and remove this post urgently. Thank you.

    These relationship charts may make for good publicity but it doesn’t take long to discover that they’re full of obvious errors and misinformation. Couldn’t Geni add some some basic error-checking to its search algorithm? Ms. Jolie’s alleged relationship to the Prophet Mohammed is an obvious red flag, but there are many other examples. For example, her ostensible 17th great-grandmother Gilette De Thiembronne was born only 3 years later than the person that’s supposedly her father (Jean de Bournel II). And many of her “ancestors” have multiple mothers or fathers. I imagine there are plenty of Geni users who like me found these charts interesting at first but rapidly grew disappointed with the lack of quality control.

      I agree with you statement. Many profiles on geni.com have people being two years older than their parents. Some son-in-laws are older than their wife’s parents or even grandparents. A background check should be made on ALL profiles!!
