Something is “wrong” with little Leopold……. When he has a little trip, or falls…he spends days in bed with awful swelling. When he gets a cut, or bleeds…they can’t stop it Leo
The basics of Hemophilia It only affects the X chromosome The Genetic “defect” hampers the body’s ability to “clot” cuts and bruises So a person who has hemophilia can die from a simple cut or fall Also…girls are usually never affected by this genetic “problem”…..but we can carry it and pass it on to our kids…
So what happens to Leopold? I do grow up…and have some “close calls” However I slipped and fell while vacationing in France…it was to much for my body to handle……
Ok kids, so you know this disease is fatal…. This is sad for any family…but this is not just your ordinary family… This is Queen Victoria kids, they will marry into other royal families… Who then will have kids who will “run” the countries of Europe…. It may not be a problem unless You still have an absolute Monarchy, girls can’t rule, and you have only one son…who shows signs of what Leopold had

Russian Doctors are unable to help, cure, fix, heal, Alexi… So the Russian Royal family called in a “guy” who is rumored to have a connection with god and special powers
Say privyet (hello) to Raspu tin
One day Alexi hurts his knee….bad…real bad……Leopold bad Looks like I ain’t gonna make it… Everbodies cill out tere, Rasputin got dis What ever “PRAYER” Rasputin gives “helps” Alexi
Since this, uneducated- religious peasant freak- show has “healed” the heir to the Russian throne…the Czar and Czarina listen to every word of advice he gives…
The problem with Rasputin is….. Not only is he giving the royal family catastrophic advice But he is a “legend” when it comes to partying…and it is the talk of the Russian royal court… Rasputin has to go…..
December 16-17, :30 A.M. 3x We then roll his body up in a rug and dump it in a river… I've been waiting in the hall Been waiting on your call I've been waiting in the hall Been waiting on your call We're gonna bring a case of wine
But the damage has been done …Czar Nicolas II cannot recover from Rasputin's bad advice, the war and the anger of the Russian people. And the Russian people/peasants enter the “7 step program” of Revolution!!!!!
