The Genetics of Queen Victoria Family Tree

queen victoria family tree

In the late 1700s, a Russian named Alexi Tsarionov studied the lives and recorded the life of the Russian Queen Victoria. While there are many records and stories of the Russian Queens and their children from earlier times, there have been very few accounts and records of the life the Russian Queen Victoria had. It has been speculated that due to her marriage to the archduke of Saxony and her being forced to sign the humiliating “arms contract” that she was no longer a princess but a count’s wife. The only other record of the life of the Russian Queen Victoria is in the British Museum in London where one carving referred to as the “gilded queen” shows her with long hair, wearing a tiara and gloves.

The Victoria family tree

Family Tree

The Victoria family tree can be used to learn more about the early life of the Russian Queen Victoria. It is important to know some of her more contemporary offspring as well, especially if you plan to start your family tree in the future. This includes her daughters who would be important future rulers.

Her daughters were quite often called “harpies,” which was a form of address for Jews at the time. These girls were also known as “court hemophiliacs.” Hemophilia referred to in this instance was not just for women but also included her male descendants such as her son, Prince Alexander of Russia, and his two stepdaughters. The duke of Athos was her brother and later became the next Tsarina (successor) of Russia. As well, her daughter from Burgundy was named dowryress to the next Russian Tsarina, Catherine the Great.

Branches of the Russian Royal Family

Family Tree

There are six main branches of the Russian Royal Family. All of them had branches that are still living today, namely the Grand Duchy of Moscow, Grand Duchy of Muscovia, Grand Duchy of Kieffa, Grand Duchy of Oltenya, and the Russian Imperial family. The six branches of the Russian Royal Family are still alive today as the successors of Catherine the Great. All of them have several generations of daughters who are today known as the royal hemophiliacs of the Russian Empire.

Important people in the Royal Family

The most important person in the Royal Family is the mother. Queen Victoria was known for her beauty, intelligence, and kindness as a caring wife to her husband and children. She was the second woman to hold the title of “queen” in England. Queen Victoria’s great love for her daughter, Princess Elisabeth, influenced her choice of titles for the Queenship.

The other important people in the Queen Victoria family tree are her two stepdaughters, Elisabet (also known as Eva) Romanovitch (also spelled Emetta), and Elisabeth (alternately spelled Emmelu’). Eva became the mother of the last Emperor of the Russian Empire, Nicholas II, and later the wife of his son, Alexander II. Elisabet was the mother of the German Emperor, Kaiser von Belch, and the mother of the German Emperor, Field Marshal Reinhart von Moltke. Elisabet and Elisabeth were also mothers of the British Prime Minister, David Lloyd George. These women had very strong maternal instincts and loved spending time with their young grandchildren.

Royal bloodline

As you can see from this overview, the bloodline of the last Empress of the Russian Empire is traced through her mother and step-sisters. Queen Victoria was closely related to her step-sister, the “Czarina” by marriage, as she was very close to her step-sister Czarina Alexandra. Queen Victoria’s other three children, the future British monarch, the future Russian imperial ruler, and her granddaughter, the current First lady of the United States, all have strong genealogical roots. The same can be said for her great-grandchildren, the duke of Romanian, the first Roman Catholic Emperor, and his consort, the beautiful Victoria.

The Queen’s weakness

There are several interesting things about the DNA of Queen Victoria that have brought forth some intriguing results concerning the genetics of her offspring. It has been determined that her bloodline contains a stronger genetic component of the x chromosome than any other known female in history. Some studies have suggested that this weakness of the x chromosome may have been caused by a recessive trait that affected the development of her body when she was pregnant. Also, it has been determined that the maternal grandmother of the Russian empress was a hemophiliac, and most likely developed this weakness later in life. It is these that are believed to have contributed to the development of the weakness in her body that led to the development of the royal disease that destroyed the life of the Russian queen and the crown of her husband.

The Russian royal family has a long lineage of strong women who have all passed on their genes to the next generation. Queen Victoria’s daughter Elisabeth was renowned for her beauty, intelligence, and kindness as a caring wife to her husband and children. She was also a mother-in-law to Nicholas II, the last Emperor of Russia. Eva Romanovitch became his stepmother after she married his father Alexander III when he ascended the throne in 1881. The other important person is Elizabeth von Moltke who carried on her line by marrying into another powerful European royalty – David Lloyd George from Britain. This bloodline stretches back generations with many daughters becoming hemophiliacs due to genetic mutations that are still being studied today!
