females can also have haemophilia it is just more rare because they either have to have 2 mutated X chromosomes or 1 mutated gene and one missing gene or inactive gene.

I have a bleeding condition that effects of my menstural period. Mennorhiaga-metorrhaigia is probably a closely related to hemophilia and Von Willebrands Disease. I get pain and debilitating aches and menstural cramps severe enough that I cannot get out of bed. I could have Von Wilbrands Disease but it is probably very cryptic if it does exist. Mennorhiaga-metorrhaigia is probably hemophilia of uterus or womb if I am not incorrect. I hope someone could explain the high possible connection to Mennorhiaga-metorrhaigia and how Hemophilia is a cousin to menstural bleeding condition otherwise my gynecologist wouldn't be telling me to watch over the heavy bleeding risk. Recently I had orange period blood, and I know it might be a sign of anemia and the effect of Mennorhiaga-metorrhaigia.

3 things. 1 hemophilia or haemophilia is not curable but it is manageable so even if the current royal family had this problem it can be managed with medication. 2 The reason women rarely get it is because women have XX chromosomes and men have XY chromosomes. The gene for hemophilia is carried on the X chromosome. In order for a woman to get hemophilia both their father (which in those days it was rare for anyone with hemophilia to live very long) and their mother would have to have it. 3 haemophilia is British spelling so there for it is spelled correctly.

I, too, have porphyria, and  have had all the symptoms that they spoke about in this video.  Evidently years and years ago a statue was found in Spain that honored some of my relatives that were in some kind of royal lineage.  Must be where my family inherited it.  I have passed this on to only one of my children, and thankfully he's only been bothered by it a very few times.  And yes, before I was given the right test and found out wht I had, my doctor planned on sending me to a psychiatrist!

Um... my mom is a carrier of both A and B hemophilia and it can kill women. She almost died multiple times. They may as well be hemophiliacs.

Genetic mutations occur in all families, indeed in all living things - royal families simply have more detailed records over considerable periods of time. They no more have 'tainted blood' than any other group of people. btw How in the world can the illness of George lll (r1760-1820) be "linked back to Queen Victoria (r1837-1901)?

Thank goodness for Princess Kate. Hopefully the new DNA can help the future descendants of the royal family.

Hemophilia is a genetic disease.  It is found on the x chromosome.  You need two x's with it to express it, unless your a man as men only have one x chromosome.  Women express it if they get the gene on both x chromosomes.  Men express it if they have the gene on their only x chromosome.  Thats Why men are more inclined to get it.  Inbreeding or small populations are more inclined since they have fewer chromosomes to "water down" the gene pool.It's a statistics thing. -Catrina Richards

@lovechangengrowth hmm They are refereing to genetic hemophilla, where it is caused by genetic inbreeeding. Not all hemophilia is caused by inbreeding per say it can be spontanoeus, occuring out of no where in an individual or a famliy. Women carry the trait while men will suffer it. This is why Elizabetha was not symptomatic but her son Leopold was.Is it genetic or spontaneous in your family.
