Royal Diseases from Tainted Blood

Royal diseases from Tainted Blood - Haemophilia and Porphyria
The history of the royal family contains many instances of unexplained illnesses and premature death – George III’s madness, the downfall of Mary Queen of Scots, and Rasputin bringing down the Russian throne can all be linked to Queen Victoria. This documentary explores how, in trying to preserve the bloodline, the monarchy may have spread genetic disease far and wide – from porphyria wreaking havoc with British royals to haemophilia finding its way from Buckingham Palace to Moscow.

  1. Didn't expect this film be that great, but it was pretty good. It tells how, through the royal UK bloodline, Rasputin helped to topple the Russian Dynasty, and how Queen Victoria's ego keep her from believing that anything could be wrong in her genetics, therefore creating a false sense of protection which allowed this disease to transfer down into the family.

    Having the "blue blood" seemed to be more important than being genetically predisposed to these rare diseases.

    Through doctor notes, it's highly possible that Mad King George was not mad at all, just suffering from intermittent bouts of swollen joints and frustration that goes with the diseases. Tests today show that Mary Queen of Scots transferred this to her offspring, and Prince William of Gloucester, a cousin of the Queen, also suffered from one of these blood diseases. Men are usually born with the symptoms and women are the carriers.

    It's highly possible someone in the royal family has this disease now and are covering it up. It seems the royal bloodline may not be so royal at all, and more than likely no different than average bloodlines.
