UK Kirkus Review » As though Elizabeth II hasn't had enough troubles, here come two authors who want to establish that Queen Victoria was illegitimate, and that therefore Her present Majesty has no right to the throne. So, we should all be subjects of House of Hanover. Ridiculous? Ah, but you see, one of Victoria's sons died of haemophilia, and none of her ancestors had the gene which produces that condition. Therefore - either one of her parents had a one in 50,000 random mutation or Victoria was the illegitimate child of a haemophiliac man. The authors argue persuasively, and their argument seems unanswerable. Many readers will still prefer to believe that somehow, in this case, science is an ass. But... is it? (Kirkus UK)
