8 Elvis Presley Facts So Crazy You Might Not Believe Them

#5 Elvis Was Related to Abraham Lincoln and Jimmy Carter

Elvis married Priscilla Ann Wagner in 1967 and had a daughter, Lisa Marie, the following year. After their marriage fell apart, the couple divorced in 1973 and Priscilla took custody of Lisa Marie. Elvis had a brief affair with the Swedish-American actress and singer, Ann-Margret and Priscilla had an affair with black belt instructor and family friend, Mike Stone. While it is known that Elvis has family ties with presidents Jimmy Carter ( a distant cousin) and Abraham Lincoln ( a direct descendant of Abe’s great-great grandfather, Isaiah Harrison), there is also a point of time when the King adopted a chimpanzee named Scatter who was known for looking up women’s skirts. Of course, Elvis found this amusing and would make a prank out of getting his female friends together so Scatter could create havoc among them.
