Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's family tree from Queen Victoria. HUGE mistake made in Philip's line...the photo of Princess Victoria is that of Princess Alice's (above) sister who became Empress of Germany. Princess Alice became Princess of Hesse and by Rhine; her daughter was Victoria of Hesse.

Family tree of Queen Victoria showing hemophilia. Research indicates that the gene was a spontaneous mutation in Victoria which was passed to her daughters Alice and Beatrice, and her son Leopold, who died at age 30 after a fall. Alix of Hesse (daughter of Alice) brought this X-linked recessive gene into play in the Romanov family, with tragic results-their son Alexei, heir apparent, suffered from hemophilia.
Let's Bring Back: Kissing Cousins. Nothing says, "An Empire Built to Last" more than a couple of inbreeding royal cousins whose descendants cover the span of Europe's royalty, bringing hemophilia, a fashionable disease to the upper echelon of society. Thanks Vicky and Albert!
