Elvis Presley was born on January 8, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi, to 18-year-old Vernon Elvis and 22-year-old Gladys Love Presley, in the two-room shotgun house built by his father in readiness for the birth.
Presley’s ancestry was primarily a Western European mix: On his mother’s side, he was Scots-Irish, with some French Norman. His father’s forebears were of Scottish or German origin.
