Balkan Royal Families / Re: Prince Tomislav of Yugoslavia
« on: December 24, 2013, 04:16:09 PM »
Are there any photos available on the internet of Prince Christopher , who died in a bicycling traffic accident in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, in 1994, where he was employed as a science teacher ?  I believe that he used the name Christopher George. He was the son of Prince Andrew, who was the 3rd son of King Alexandr I.

There were princes and princesses told that they were separated from their whole Russian team (except the priest and two singers), a decision was taken by the Dowager Queen Juliane Marie and not by the Empress Catherine. It came as a Hoerdt blow for the four collaterals, it was the people they had known for many years and who could speak Russian, their only language, also had two of the girls their halvsoestre, children of Anton Ulrich, born after his wife's death. The two halvsoestre was sent back to Cholmogory where they might be the rest of their lives, they get a lifelong pension.

Meanwhile, in Horsens bought two goerde with gardens on the church square, and the architect CF Harsdorf converted them into a long story mansion for the Russian court. There were two floors with over 50 vaorelser in the main building as well as in house domestik rooms, stables and outbuildings. North side turned towards the square, along the west side was the entrance to the building's only entrance, which were guarded by a porter, a schweitser and a guard of a corporal and 6 riders. Planlaesningen was special, Prince of the room was far away from the entrance, and access to the main staircase was besvaerliggjort by boarded up door in addition to.

Harsdorf also stood for furnishing and suggested including the purchase of a throne (for 4 people?), 4 and 8 herskabssenge best citizen beds besides domestiksenge, each for two people. From Frijsenborg got a pool and two hospitalized rosentraesspilleborde. Furniture, linens, silverware and paintings came by ship from the court's store in Copenhagen, while locally purchased utensils and fruit trees, shrubs and bulbs to the garden where there were two gazebos, one made by a Turkish tent, and a pergola of 24 subjects .; who was hired a knowledgeable garden lackey. The wagons were 3 coaches, a phaeton, a hunting trailer and a kabriolet, served 12 horses, and joined a team of local service staff of 30 people besides hofchef, hofmesterinde and maids, etc. A large supply of food and wine purchased and taken delivery contracts for firewood, fodder for
horses, etc. Even a Greek-orthodox chapel was room for Harsdorf had seen a Russian church in Rome and decorated it then, but when popen arrived, he was more than unhappy and demanded costly changes. Total cost the palace and its interior 60,000 Rdl. That the Danish government put out. It was suggested Empress Catherine an installment agreement, but she immediately paid the entire sum.

The Russian company spent three days in Aalborg to rest after the voyage and stayed in several places on the road to Jaipur, where they arrived on 13 October. The first time was not easy, every night barricaded the four collaterals their doors for fear of being assassinated, like their brother.

After they had been in Horsens in a month, came the Queen Dowager Juliane Maries son, Crown Prince Frederik of visits. It was not a fruitful meeting, the princesses were not healthy, and the princes closest afraid of their cousin. Yet it was the first relatives that had ever appeared, so they received him with kisses, tears and embraces. Hereditary Prince became aware of language difficulties, so there was employed a Russian-language expert master who would teach them German. The princesses were very laerevillige while the princes, especially Peter, did not care much about having to sit on skolebaenken. Better was that there were three horses from the royal stables. For winter use built builder Kruse a riding house, which was leased to the court. There was established a "Carousel with Tridser, Bridles and accessories" to the delight of princes. Mrs. Russia was brought a very beautiful sleigh equipment that was used extensively during the winter.

Thank you for the post above. In the first paragraph, you mention that the 4 Russian princes and princesses were accompanied by their two half-sisters (halvsoestre), born to Anton Ulrich after the death of his wife, and who were eventually sent back to Khomolgory. Do you have a source, or any further information, on these 2  natural children of Anton Ulrich ?  They aren't mentioned in any source I've come across, and it would be interesting to know more about them. Thanks for any information that you can provide.

Due to advances in medical treatment for hemophilia, more hemophiliac men are surviving to reproductive age, and having children. Also, probably as a result of this, although hemophilia in women remains very rare, it is more common now than it was in the past. (There is a greater chance of a woman now inheriting an affected X from both her carrier mother, and from her affected father, resulting in two affected XX chromosomes ( a woman with hemophilia ). However, just as in men, due to advances in medical treatment, hemophilia in women is now manageable. A hemophiliac women, with good medical care, can even give birth herself. Since she has 2 affected X chromosomes, her sons will automatically have hemophilia, and her daughters will automatically be carriers. Genetic counselling would be recommended.

Incidentally, hemophilia can also arise as a spontaneous mutation in the X chromosome. It is then passed on to future generations, and becomes hereditary. This is probably how it originated in Queen Victoria, as there was no previous history of hemophilia in her forebears. The mutation isn't common, but is more likely to occur in  a birth in advanced maternal age. I believe Victoria's mother gave birth to Victoria at a somewhat advanced age, and one of Victoria's X chromosomes must have been a spontaneous mutation.
