While Elvis Presley’s legacy lives on through his music, films, and tributes, his memory also lives on through his grandchildren. When Elvis and Priscilla Presley welcomed their first and only daughter, Lisa Marie, little did they know her four children would carry the Presley name and legacy long after their grandfather died in 1977. 

Danielle Riley Keough

On May 26, 1989, Lisa Marie Presley and her first husband, Danny Keough, welcomed their daughter, Danielle Riley Keough. At a young age, Keough started acting and modeling.

When she was 20-years-old, she landed her first big movie role when she starred alongside Kristen Stewart in The Runaways. She also appeared in the Tom Hardy blockbuster film Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015.

Keough has also starred in the hit series “Riverdale,” and you can also catch the 31-year-old in The Lodge and The Earthquake Bird. 

Benjamin Keough

Tragically, Elvis’ only grandson, Benjamin, passed away on July 12, 2020, at the age of 27, from what was determined to be a suicide. Before his death, he was an avid musician, and it was reported that he made a deal with Universal Music for $5 million, but no music has yet to be released. During his life, he kept a low profile and had a private Instagram account.

In October 2020, Keough was laid to rest alongside his grandfather in Graceland’s Meditation. Graceland is also the resting place of Keough’s great-grandmother Gladys Presley, great-grandfather Vernon Presley and great-great-grandmother Minnie Mae Presley.

Following the tragic death, Lisa Marie Presley’s manager stated in July saying, “She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her (twins) and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life.”

Elvis Presley’s Twin Granddaughters

When Elvis was born, he had a twin brother who tragically passed away at birth, if you didn’t know. For this reason, it makes it all the more significant that Elvis’s youngest grandchildren are twin girls.

Lisa Marie Presley and her fourth husband, musician Michael Lockwood welcomed the twins, Harper and Finley, in 2008.

Even though their parents split up, the twins are happy young girls. In February, Lisa Marie Presley posted a heartwarming photo of the twins and Riley, which left fans speechless due to their resemblance to their mom.
