He had a medical condition called hemophilia from his mother Alexandra and traced back to her own maternal grandmother Queen Victoria. However, recent scholarship has called into question the nature and severity of his ailment. In particular, the usual "Punnett Square" technique of tracing a recessive phenotypes back to undocumented (yet likely) sufferers and carriers fails to disclose why Alexei should have had hemophilia in the first place. A more recent diagnosis--made possible with the advent of 20th century medicine, notwithstanding the unavailability of a cadaver to analyze--is thrombocytopenia.

Historical significance

The significance of Alexei is threefold. Firstly, Alexei was the heir to the throne despite being the fifth and last child of Nicholas II and Alexandra. Women had been barred from the succession by Paul I (1754-1801, ruled 1796-1801), in revenge upon his mother, Catherine II ('the Great'). Alexei was named after Alexis I of Russia, who ruled from 1645 to 1676, known as 'the quiet' and father of Peter the Great. Paul I of Russia Paul I of Russia (Russian: Pavel Petrovich, Павел I Петрович) (October 1, 1754 - March 23, 1801) was an Emperor (Tsar) of Russia (1796 - 1801). ... 1754 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ... 1801 was a common year starting on Thursday (see link for calendar). ... 1796 was a leap year starting on Friday. ... 1801 was a common year starting on Thursday (see link for calendar). ...

Alexey Mikhailovich Romanov (In Russian Алексей Михаилович Романов) (March 9, 1629 (O.S.) - January 29, 1676 (O.S.)) was a Tsar of Russia during some of the most eventful decades of the mid-17th century. ... // Events January 10 - Archbishop Laud executed on Tower Hill, London. ...

In the first draft of Tsar Nicholas II's 1917 abdication, the intention was that the 12-year old Alexei would ascend to the throne under a regency. However, due to Nicholas' wish that Alexei should not be separated from the family, and in view of his crippling illness, the final draft included the abdication both of father and son in favour of Nicholas' younger brother Michael II. Grand Duke Michael Alexandrovitch of Russia (1878-1918) Grand Duke Michael of Russia, Mikhail Alexandrovich Romanov (Russian: Михаил Александрович Романов), sometimes called mistakenly calledTsar Michael IV (November 22, 1878 (O.S.) - about June 12, 1918) was the son of Tsar Alexander III of Russia, and brother of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. ...


Secondly, his hemophilia was integral to the rise of Grigori Rasputin. One of the many things Rasputin did that unintentionally facilitated the fall of the Romanovs was to tell the Czar that the war would be won once he (Czar Nicholas II) took command of the Russian Army. Following this advice was a serious mistake because the Czar had no military experience. The tsaritsa, Empress Alexandra, a deeply religious woman, came to rely upon Grigori Rasputin and believe in his ability to help Alexei where conventional doctors had failed. This theme is explored in Robert K. Massie's "Nicholas and Alexandra". It is not too far-fetched to see that if Alexei had not suffered so terribly, Rasputin could never have gained such influence over Russian politics during the World War I, which at the very least hastened the collapse of Romanov rule. Grigori Rasputin Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin (Russian: Григо́рий Ефи́мович Распу́тин) (1870(?) – December 16, 1916 (O.S.)) was a Russian mystic with an influence in the later days of Russias Romanov dynasty. ...

World War I was primarily a European conflict with many facets: immense human sacrifice, stalemate trench warfare, and the use of new, devastating weapons - tanks, aircraft, machineguns, and poison gas. ...


Lastly, Alexei being hemophiliac seriously diverted the attention of his father, Nicholas II, and the rest of the Romanovs from the war and the government to caring for Alexei. If Alexei had not been hemophiliac, Nicholas II might have had the time to personally look after the happenings in Petrograd which started off the Russian Revolution. Saint Petersburg (Russian: Санкт-Петербу́рг, English transliteration: Sankt-Peterburg), colloquially known as Питер (transliterated Piter), formerly known as Leningrad (Ленингра́д, 1924–1991) and Petrograd (Петрогра́д, 1914–1924), is a city located in Northwestern Russia on the delta of the river Neva at the east end of the Gulf of Finland... The phrase Russian Revolution can refer to the following events in the history of Russia. ...
