The children of Tsar Nicholas. Alexei the only son had hemophilia. All were granchildren of Queen Victoria. Haemophilia spread into many of Europe’s Royal families from her. But how did she get the gene? It did not exist in her official parents’ families. This is strong evidence that Victoria was illegitimate. But who was her father, and where is the evidence that that family had hemophilia?
The arrival of hemophilia amongst Europe’s Royal families, when Queen Victoria gave birth to a hemophiliac son, shocked everyone. There was no evidence of the hereditary disease in Queen Victoria’s official parents or their predecessors. Yet many of her children and their subsequent heirs became hemophiliacs and died tragically young.
Prince Albert, the son of a stable lad called Henstein, and the father of most of Queen Victoria’s brood, if not all, was also illegitimate and not a Coburg-Gotha at all. His official name nonetheless delivered two of the current royal family’s three surnames – Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Henstein was made to disappear for convenience, but there is as yet nothing to suggest he was a hemophiliac or that his real parents carried the gene, which has since plagued Europe’s Royal families for well over a century.
The question as to who Queen Victoria’s father was appears the key to where the illness came from. The fact that the illness started so suddenly in a family not previously affected is itself strong evidence that Queen Victoria was illegitimate.
Other sources are stating that Queen Victoria’s real father was Nathan Mayer Rothschild (Greg Hallett quoting secret sevice source), and there are likenesses to him amongst later offspring such as Winston Churchill (the illegitimate son of Edward 7th). Is there any hard evidence that the Rothschilds have suffered from the hemophiliac gene, and could have passed it on to Queen Victoria’s descendants? At this point I can’t see evidence from a historical perspective. All I can see from a quick internet search is that a Chantal Rothschild is a significant hemophilia researcher in France, and there are donations to a USA hemophilia association from Rothschild-owned banks, and a legal practice carrying the Rothschild name. It’s not much to go on, but at this early stage I am really just beginning to look around.
It would be an important confirming piece of evidence to finally prove the link between the head banking family in the world with the most important royal family in the world. From these two the primary political figures of the twentieth century emerged, Hitler, Stalin and Churchill (if N.M.R. fathered Victoria) all being illegitimate descendants of the Rothschilds.
Is there any more suggestion of the Rothschilds having a hemophilia gene connection in the past? The disease can jump six generations so you could look back several centuries. I am reading the history of the Rothschilds by Niall Ferguson so I will keep a look out for any hints, or paths for further investigation. It’s just that any historical explanation of how the Rothschilds controlled politicans and royal families, cannot ignore the hemophilia element. That too has to be explained.
See The Royal Disease and the fascinating family tree which shows Queen Elizabeth 2 was born into the line from Edward 7th, which has been hemophilia free, while the Duke Of Edinburgh’s side, coming from Alice, has been hemophilia-free for only two generations, and be more likely to still potentially carry the hemophilia gene.
POSSIBLE HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE – A Rothschild legal practice funds a Society for Hemophiliacs in the USA.
Chantal Rothschild is a leading expert and frequent author on hemophilia in France.
Maybe all just coincidence. But if the hemophilia gene was an occasional visitor to the Rothschild family, such modern-day links would not be unlikely to remain and be visible.
The question history doesn’t answer is who brought hemophilia into the Royal Family? the answer must be there somewhere, so let’s keep looking.
Historically the disease is mentioned in Jewish histories, especially regarding circumcision – as in this extract – Rabbi Simon ben Gamaliel
forbade a boy to be circumcised because the sons of
his mother’s three elder sisters had died after
circumcision (Rothschild, 1882, qu. Bullock and…

Throughout the world, persons of Ashkenazi (European) Jewish descent and Iraqi Jews are most commonly affected by hemophilia
TAP We appear to be searching for a Jewish male of European descent who had known access to Queen Victoria’s mother, and who in turn attracted kind acts of favour from Queen Victoria. As Jews were not acceptable within British High Society, apart from Nathan Mayer Rothschild, the trail is getting a lot warmer. Queen Victoria made an exception for him to become the first Jewish British Lord allowed into The Lords, and his son Lionel to become the first Jewish MP in the British Parliament. It’s not case proved beyond all doubt, but it appears we might be getting close to claiming a persuasive case. Hallett, who makes a number of wild assertions in his books, might yet be right in his claim that N.M.Rothschild fathered Queen Victoria. Who else?
