Elvis Presley, “the King,” was an incredibly talented musician and rock-and-roll icon.

People all over the United States, and all over the world, fell for Elvis and his charms — when he performed, people lost their minds.

Elvis was born in 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. He moved to Memphis with his family when he was 13 years old.

In 1954, Elvis began his music career. Two years later, he starred in his first movie.

He already had a successful music career by 1958, when he was drafted into the military. Elvis went straight back to music and film when he returned from service.

On May 1, 1967, Elvis married Priscilla Beaulieu — together, they had a daughter, Lisa Marie, who was born in 1968.

In 1977, Elvis passed away of a heart attack. Lisa Marie was only 9.

Despite her father’s passing, Lisa Marie Presley went on to have a successful music and acting career.

In 1989, Lisa Marie gave birth to a daughter, Riley Keough, who is now all grown up and looks just like her grandfather.

Elvis Presley, who changed the face of rock and roll forever, had an incredibly successful career.

While he was married to Priscilla Presley, the two of them had a baby girl, Lisa Marie Presley.

Priscilla and Elvis split up, but Lisa Marie was in the spotlight a lot as a child, since her parents were so famous.

When Elvis passed away, Lisa Marie was still young, but his musical influence on her was obvious.

Lisa Marie went on to have a successful music career, but now focuses a lot of her energy on charity and humanitarian efforts.

She continued to live in the spotlight throughout her young adulthood, marrying some of the world’s most famous celebrities, like Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage.

With her first husband, Danny Keough, Lisa Marie had a daughter, Riley Keough, who is now 28, with a successful acting and modeling career of her own.

Although Riley never met her grandfather, she will always carry his legacy.

There’s no doubt that Riley’s grandfather, the great Elvis Presley, would be proud of his granddaughter’s success.

And who can look past the fact that she looks exactly like him?

Like her grandfather, Riley has piercing blue eyes and a straight nose.

Her smile looks just like her mother’s and is a perfect copy of her grandfather’s.

Another feature of Riley’s that looks just like Elvis’s? Her hairline.

The widow’s peak on Riley’s forehead is definitely something we’ve seen before — it perfectly mirrors her grandfather’s hair!
