She’s already been the queen of reality TV for years, but now Kim Kardashian may have an actual claim to the throne.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been revealed as a relative of Scottish folklore hero Rob Roy McGregor.
According to the Daily Record the 38 year old is a legitimate descendant of Scottish royalty.
The mum-of-four’s lineage can be traced back to the MacGregor clan and is related to the famous cattle thief and Jacobite rebel Rob Roy.
Being a descendant of that Scottish legend means that Kim is directly linked to the first King of Scots, Kenneth MacAlpin.
Craig Williams, a Scottish researcher, discovered the famous star’s history after investigating claims that the Kardashians like Scottish names.
Kim’s oldest sister, Kourtney, named her daughter Penelope Scotland Disick.
Speaking to the Daily Record, Craig said: “This all came about because I had seen the name of Kim’s niece was Penelope Scotland Disick.

“I thought the family must be aware of a Scottish background. And sure enough, when I searched the historical records, there it was.
“I had no idea they would be linked to such a towering figure from Scottish history though.
“And as the McGregors claim direct descent from Scottish kings, maybe Kim could have a claim on the throne.”
Rob Roy became famous after the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s novel Rob Roy in 1817.
He achieved further fame when a film was made about him starring Liam Neeson in 1995.
