Probably it is not an explanation for the fanatic Dutch fans, but it turned out that Elvis has Dutch roots too. Elvis is a straight descendant of Teunis Elisassen, from the small Dutch town Bunschoten. Teunis moved to America in the second half of the seventeenth century and took the name Van Bunschoten. Six generations later the connection with the Presley family came when his descendant Minnie Mae Hood married Jessie Presley. As we all know it turned out that this couple became Elvis’ grandparents.
