Queen Victoria married her first cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Together they went on to have nine children and 42 grandchildren. Only Princess Louise did not have children of her own. Their grandchildren included an Emperor, an Empress, a King, four Queens and a Crown Princess. Her son Leopold suffered from haemophilia and two of her daughters – Alice and Beatrice – passed the gene to their children. Leopold’s daughter was a carrier of the gene while his son was healthy. Princess Alice married the future Louis IV, Grand Duke of Hesse in 1862 and they went on to have seven children together. Of Alice’s two sons, one suffered from haemophilia and the two-year-old Friedrich died after a fall. Of her five daughters, two were definitely carriers- Alix, the future Tsarina of Russia and Irene, who married Prince Henry of Prussia – of the gene as they passed it on to their children. Princess Beatrice married Prince Henry of Battenberg in 1885. Of their three sons, one was a haemophiliac, while their only daughter Victoria Eugenie was a carrier of the gene.
