Pedigrees and Karyotyping Analyzing Inheritance Patterns and Chromosomes
EngageSex-Linked Recessive HemophiliaThe Royal Disease Read the short story Alexis: The Prince Who Had Hemophilia by:-Kelley, Laureen A. Set in the early 1900s, this is the story of the youngest child of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, last Tsar of Russia. The story includes how Alexis's hemophilia influenced the course of events in Russia that led to the Russian Revolution
Some HistoryHemophilia has played an important role in Europe's historyThe disease began to crop up in Great Britain's Queen Victorias childrenIt became known as the "Royal disease" because it spread to the royal families of Europe through Victoria's descendants
How it Spreadit spread through the Royal Houses of Europe as monarchs arranged marriages to consolidate political alliances. We can trace the appearance of hemophilia as it popped up in Spain, Russia, and Prussia by looking at the family tree.
The Royal Family Tree
Queen Victoria's son Leopold's Family His daughter, Alice of Athlone, had one hemophilic son (Rupert) and two other children -- a boy and a girl -- whose status is unknown. What is the chance that her other son was hemophilic? What is the probability that her daughter was a carrier? hemophiliac?
The Spanish ConnectionNow for the Spanish connection: Victoria's youngest child, Beatrice, gave birth to one daughter, one normal son, and two hemophilic sons. Looking at the pedigree of the royal family, identify which of Beatrice's children received the hemophilic gene; why can you make this conclusion? Notice that Beatrice's daughter, Eugenie, married King Alfonso XIII of Spain and had six children, one of whom was the father of Juan Carlos, the current King of Spain. Would you predict that Juan Carlos was normal, a carrier, or a hemophilic?
