While in the show, Elena is a descendent of Katherine who descended from Tatia, all of them are Petrova Doppelgangers created because of the existence of Amara. The books follow a different route, Elena and Katherine aren’t doppelgangers, but sisters. Their mother Elizabeth Morrow is a celestial guardian and who gave birth to Katherine in 15th century and conceived Elena five centuries later. Katherine is born in the Von Swartzschild Family whereas in the show she’s a part of the Petrova Family which has Bulgarian Descent. Interestingly, while numerous members of the Petrova Family became Vampires, but they were Travelers by birth thus giving them the birthright to practice magic. When Katherine foiled Klaus’ plan of lifting up the curse, an enraged Klaus wiped out the entire (nearly) family of Katherine.
