London , Aug 6 (ANI): While she is a superstar in her own right, Victoria Beckham also has a family lineage that can leave many people impressed she is descended from a pal of Karl Marx, the father of Communism.

Hans Mueller, a historian in the city of Heilbronn found that the ex-Spice Girls great-great-great-grandad Carl Pfaender was a German revolutionary and was a close associate of Marx.

Mueller said that Pfaender, who was born in 1819, fled to London after uprisings failed to oust Germany s monarch in 1848.

He then started a new living as a miniature portrait painter until he died aged 57.

He certainly didnt get rich doing it. His wife was buried in a paupers grave, The Sun quoted Hans, as saying.

The historian couldnt believe himself when he unravelled the link, which is worth 125million pounds, with the 34-year-old pop star.

In fact, he also contacted Poshs mum Jacqueline, who also confirmed his findings.

Weve been aware of this for a while, said a spokesman for Posh. (ANI)
