Does anyone know what blood type Alexei had or if it was possible to find out from all the DNA testing they did? :) thanks.

This is from memory, not a written source, but I believe the entire Family was Type A.

As there were only 2 types known at the time of the Romanovs,A being the most common, it is a pretty safe bet that they were A.  All the other types were discovered long after they were dead.

 I do not know, yet, I need to ask my doctor friend. I imaginative it was B though. Not very imaginative, is it ?













 op into several   types as I understand it. I am no expert, just going by what my doctor friend tells me.

I believe the typing was done through the remains.

So if we know that the entire family is Type A, do we know the rhesus factor as well? (Positive or Negative?)

I don't know much about the "history" of blood types but...

As there were only 2 types known at the time of the Romanovs,A being the most common, it is a pretty safe bet that they were A.  All the other types were discovered long after they were dead.

Saying that only 2 were "known" do you mean that if they were 0 we can't know because they did not know this type or that they couldn't be 0?
I don't know much but maybe tyoe 0 existed but wasn't known - this doesn't mean they couldn't be 0.
And type AB is the union of bloodA and B so if A and B exist, also AB exist (mother A, father B, child AB)
But i'll ask my brtoher in law who is a doctor, just to clean up my confusional ideas a little!
