It has been said that Hitler and Napoleon had this, not uncommon condition.

would Alexei have been able to have children with this condition? I am thinking yes, but I'm not sure.


It is possible, if it were not bilateral.

I seem to recall that Marie Antoinette's husband suffered from this condition, or some other similar congenital issue, making it difficult for him (until surgery) to have--as the saying goes--"normal marital relations."

No, I think his was a different condition ( in which the foreskin is too tight but I can't remember the name of it...it begins with an 'e' I think!)

Ah, you're right . . . and I can't think of the medical term either!  ;D

Two people told me what cryptochidism means...

I really didn't need to know :-/,.. I think talkng about Alexei's Private medical problems are strange and a little gross.

I think it was phimosis rather than Peyronie's Disease.   Anybody out there know for sure?

And Mandie, I suppose discussion of such issues can be embarrassing for many, but these are medical conditions, not personal weaknesses. Cancer used to be a hush-hush embarrassing subject; thank goodness this is no longer the case! And although issues involving sexuality can make people feel uncomfortable, on this site we've already discussed menses, fertility, and homosexuality, among other topics.

As for Alexei being embarrassed . . . well, you bet he would! But he is now a figure relegated to history. And I am sure many of the folks we speak of--Alexandra in particular--would be quite indignant about how we've dissected their personal lives. A certain amount of this was part and parcel of their position while they were alive. But since their deaths an entire panoply of communication resources have either evolved or been created . . . including the Internet.  And unless there's a worldwide cataclysm or Planet Earth collides with a meteor and is completely destroyed, there's really no going back!

A foot deformity where the big toe is bent towards the other toes.

Did Anastasia N. have hallux valgus? People always talk about her having some kind of foot deformity... and you can see it in some of the pictures too.

Look closely:

Is that an example of the illness, or is she just scrunching her toes?

She just has her toes curled/bent in that picture, it's not a deformity. Hallux valgus is nothing but a bunion, and many many people we all know have it.

Hallux valgus, aka "bunion":
