An American magazine claims that Elvis Presley is of Roma origin, the British Daily Mail reports.
According to Gypsy Roma Traveler magazine, Presley's distant relatives were Roma and lived in Germany. They emigrated to the United States in the early 18th century.
The same magazine states that Presley's maiden name was Smith, and as stated in the text, "that surname was often among British Roma".
Otherwise one of the experts and researcher of Roma culture and writer David Eltir says that Elvis Presley never mentioned his origin that leaves room for doubt, whether Elvis wanted to hide that fact, or whether the true roots for more than 300 years are already forgotten. ?
