Were OTMA carriers of Hemophilia?
« on: April 20, 2020, 08:48:21 PM »
Do we know if the daughters of Nicholas II would have been carriers of hemophilia?  I am wondering if the testing of their remains would have revealed this?

Yes; one of the two youngest girls, Maria or Anastasia, were carriers. Olga and Tatiana were free of it.

Thanks—where was this reported?

In a specific book or magazine article?

Thanks

Article I believe?

The news it was Haemophilia B only came out in 2008 when they published the results of the remains found in the second grave. It was not 100% known beforehand so it didn't appear as 'definite, concrete fact' in any book before that year.

I should try to find the source of this, but beside this scientific evidence, it is said to be Maria probably had the gene - I really need to find the primary source on this, but it was said that Maria bled a lot more than most when she had a surgery (tonsils removal? My memory isn't great at the moment), so it was assumed she may have had the gene.
