If you think Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a regal attitude, there may be a good reason.

Wilson was in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, over the weekend to speak with Harvard historian Henry Louis Gates Jr. about his geneology. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Gates told Wilson that his ancestors include everyone from slaves to “at least one English king.”

Russell pumped his fist and said, “I knew it.”
