This is a really interesting and facinating book about the royal families of Europe and how the haemophilia gene got introduced into their bloodlines through Queen Victoria and eventually toppled most of the monarchies of Europe. It poses some really intriguing questions about how the gene came about and if the Duke of Kent is really Queen Victoria's father, and if not, who should really be ruling Britain today. I bought this book when it was first published in the early 2000's and I've re-read it many times since then, its a great book.
