Beyonce’s real name is Ann Marie Lastrassi, and she is Italian.

Beyonce's real name is Beyonce Giselle Knowles, and she is an African-American singer and songwriter.

Florida congressional candidate KW Miller claimed that Beyoncé Knowles is not even African American, and she was an Italian woman named Ann Marie Lastrassi.

We found a link in which Beyoncé had revealed to Vogue that she has been studying her family tree and discovered that she was the descendant of a slave and a slave owner. Her bio details show that she was born and raised in Houston, Texas, US. She was born to black parents Mathew Knowles and Tina Beyonce.

Historical records show that Beyonce's past goes back five generations, and her ancestors lived in Louisiana. Her ancestors can be traced back to her great-great-great-grandmother, Rosalie Jean Louis, a slave who was born in Louisiana in 1800 who was married to Joseph Lacey, a wealthy white merchant.
